“This Is Jiu-Jitsu” Will Be Joining BJPenn.com’s FIST-ta-CUFF Radio April 21, 2013 At 7:30 PM PST
“This Is Jiu-Jitsu” is a film that’s being supported by members of Renzo Gracie’s NYC Academy. The purpose of the film is to document the history, the stories, and the culture of what makes BJJ what it is worldwide. Think about it there has never been a film like this made since the start of the sport. Jiu-Jitsu is one of the biggest parts of Mixed Martial Arts and a huge reason that the UFC even exists. Just as importantly, it speaks on the the McDojo syndrome that’s become prevalent in the last several years with schools teaching BJJ without having a serious lineage or credentials to support their teaching.
The film’s production is being backed by raising money to see everything through, we will talk about how you can help fund this amazing film. The money donated will help to includes travel costs, filming production costs, and post production costs. Once the film has been completed, it will be available for everyone to see as a NON-PROFIT affair. The film will run the film festival circuit and afterwards “This Is Jiu-Jitsu” won’t be up for sale, but rather served as its own donation to BJJ and MMA schools worldwide. Get ready to learn more and hear plenty about what could be MMA & BJJ’s biggest film of all time.
