The story of my trip around the world to train, teach and compete in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and other grappling arts.

I am doing a fundraiser seminar thursday in NYC!

If you have been following my blog, you might have read about my experience with the kids in the village of Burlacu, the official middle of nowhere in Moldova.

They only have a few old gi’s and a non-heated sports hall with some old mats. They do have a passion for grappling though, and we are going to help them continue to do this sport. Some helpful people from Romania are going to go there to teach and set up a small tournament for them. They will also build a shelter for their equipment.

For that, we need a little bit of money, less than $150, but more will also help of course.

I am doing a fundraiser seminar in Ronin Athletics on thursday at 8:00 pm. It will be with the gi, but no-gi can participate too. Price is $5 or whatever you want to donate for the kids. All the money will go directly to the project in Moldova.

If you are in New York and want to support the kids, please show up on thursday. Everyone is welcome and all help is appreciated!!
