Jiu Jitsu is only few sports that not only can applied on mats also in life, You will struggle sometimes “smashed” on the mats, you will use the last ounce of energy left at that point to catalyze your scape and even sometimes reverse the whole situation come on top. Life sometime is not easy and your will, desire makes you keep pushing forward, until you are laying in a field victorious. Never give in.

“The Jiu-Jitsu that I created was designed to give the weak ones a chance to face the heavy and strong. It was so successful that they decided to create a sportive version of it. I would like to make it clear that of course I am in favor of the sportive practice and -Jitsu, based on rules and time limits, which benefits the heavier, stronger, and more athletic individuals. The primary objective of Jiu-Jitsu is to empower the weak who, for not having the physical attributes, are often intimidated. My Jiu-Jitsu is an art of self-defense in which rules and time limits are unacceptable. These are the reasons for which I can’t support events that reflect an anti Jiu-Jitsu.”
