ROLLING FOR A REASON was built on a foundation of compassion with an inspired vision focused purely on giving back and supporting individuals, communities and the wider world alike.  R4AR was born with one purpose – to make a difference – to change lives.

Defined as a champion of solidarity and popularly referred to as “Indian”, Wévson Militão is a teacher of Jiu-Jitsu classes at Oca Dojo Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, in Salvador, Bahia. In parallel to his business life, Indian decided to provide an opportunity to change the paths of children through our beloved sport.

That made me very sad. I thought I would stop. But I remained firm training for two years straight. Until I suffered from panic attacks for six years. After

As we roll into December and all begin to wonder where yet another year has gone, we’re taking a moment to reflect on our 2017 and what lies ahead.

This unguarded inspirational piece, told from the mother herself, about her seemingly hopeless struggle to settle her unhappy child and the lifeline Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provided for the child and family on a whole.  Thank you to Shannyn Stevens and family for allowing us to share this.
