Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and sport for everyone. No matter your background, level of physical fitness, gender, career, or whatever else… BJJ will make you feel happier, more accomplished, and it will turn you into a better version of yourself.
The same is true for anyone who possesses some sort of physical disability. Para-athletes are gaining more and more opportunities to both train and test themselves in Jiu-Jitsu.
FCJJP ANNOUNCES SECOND TOURNAMENT FOR PARA-ATHLETES
It is exactly with the aim of spreading inclusion and giving more space to the para-athletes in Jiu-Jitsu, that FCJJP announced the Second Brazilian Parajiu-Jitsu tournament.
The event will be held in the Rio de Janeiro neighborhood of Deodoro on August 8. On its social networks, the Federation shared that the event is in line with the organisation’s vision of honor, respect, and resilience for BJJ and its athletes.
One other extremely interesting thing is going to be the “Efficiency Challenge”. This challenge, in Federation’s words, aims to put celebrity Jiu-Jitsu athletes on equal terms of efficiency and mobility against para-athletes.
For example, Micael Galvao is scheduled to compete against Gustavo Riscado.
