As we approach the end of another year, we take a quick look at some of the 2016 highlights and what’s on for our year ahead. 2016 saw the launch of our lifestyle line with our hoodies and Tees!

And our tshirts, some of which were designed to represent our individual athletes continue to be a popular buy! We’ve taken your

For many, the season of giving is about to begin but for Rolling 4 A Reason, our giving journey has been in full swing for over a year now! Established to provide our BJJ community with an outlet to give something back, it has been a heartening journey for us so far! Our year kicked off with a local project in Sydney supporting refugees who had arrived in Australia.

In this installment, we take a look at just a small handful of destinations recommended to get your BJJ on around

Earlier this year, surfing legend Kelly Slater publicly shared his respect and love for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the value the sport can bring to a child (and adults) life. “I advise all parents to put their kids in Jiu Jitsu classes before any other sport.” Every child should be given the opportunity to enjoy a developmental environment when their growing; their minds are like sponges, ready to absorb all that surrounds them, what better environment to support their development than one promoting positivity, confidence, discipline, and many other developmental

2016 is well under way and our youngsters have hit the ground running. Let’s take a look at what the remainder of the year has installed for our little champs! Kicking off on home soil Orange Belt Tahryn Roberts of Garage Jiu Jitsu Bondi, has big aspirations for the year ahead. He would like to travel abroad to develop his skills further at competitions like the Pan Asian International in the Philippines and the IBJJF Kids International being held in the US later in the year, whilst continuing to compete in
