- Filipe


"I started training BJJ to protect myself. With Unified Jiu-Jitsu I learned the difference between sports and reality. The clinch philosophy and the head strikes are priceless!"

Help the BJJ Community

If you are training Jiu-Jitsu, then you know how much your life has improved since you took your first step onto the Tatami. A few years in, we are all asking ourselves why we didn't start earlier or what our lives would have looked like had we had BJJ while growing up. You learn how to become humble, and how to be patient, and as your skills progress, your confidence follows. BJJ gives a sense of belonging, a true purpose, and friendships that last a lifetime. However, not everyone is as fortunate as we are. Realizing this, we strongly believe that BJJ gives meaning and provides a purpose for everyone, especially for kids in the favelas. Help support our mission to renovate Jiu-Jitsu academies for kids and teenagers in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by becoming a monthly subscriber.

Support Kids Training BJJ in the Favela

Rio de Janeiro has more than 1000 favelas. Poor living conditions often breed crime, with most members being young male teenagers, who are extremely vulnerable to the influence of unhealthy adults. 

Help Refurbish A BJJ Academy! 

Removing all kids from the favela is impossible, but we can bring the right environment to the kids! This includes changing the tatami, padding and painting the walls, fixing the light and electrical installations.

The Lotus Lockdown Online Course 

In cooperation with we will give anyone who becomes a monthly sponsor of the Save a Child with BJJ our best-selling instructional online course "The Lotus Lockdown" as a gift of appreciation for your support!

Our Documentaries



Welcome to Cantagalo, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! 

Experience the reality of the favela through the eyes of World BJJ Champion Alan "Finfou" de Nascimento.   

Growing up in an environment filled with violence and crime that cost the lives of two of his brothers, Alan was kept away from the streets training Jiu-Jitsu. Today, Alan is living in Sweden where he is coaches some of the biggest names in the UFC, such as Alexander Gustavsson and Khamzat Chimaev. BJJ gave Alan that opportunity. 

"When a child is occupied doing sports, the child will also be kept away from the harsh reality of the Favela." 

Alan himself is proof that BJJ social projects can change lives, create champions, and most importantly - save lives!
