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. Little ones who can’t afford the gym in the streets of Brazil have free access to train in his gym for free. “I started thinking about developing the project when I realized the need for the community to have an alternative

Today we’re sharing the journey of a young man that experienced desolation, abandonment, disappointment and desperation at a time in life which should be filled with joy.   The confidence, strength, encouragement and support he found in our beloved BJJ which helped him move out of his darkness is a familiar story.

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. We salute you and all the parents around the world for never giving up….The Fight Never Ends. “Motherhood has changed me, stretched me, pulled me apart.

"A Woman is a human. She is not better, wiser, stronger, more intelligent, more creative or more responsible than a man.  Likewise, she is never less." Let's hear it for the girls!  We are living in a period of great and exciting change and advancements.
