Charity Seminar Big Success and Help!

This weekend Gracie Chatswood hosted a charity seminar with Prof. Liam Resnekov, Marcos Nevel, Alex Prates and Luke Picklum. The cause: Luke’s friend, Luis, took his life after a struggle with mental health. Luis’ wife, Rosa, was left in need of help for all the various burial costs and to be able to visit their family in Chili during the bereavement.

More than 6 black belts were on the mats and more than 40 people showed up to help Rosa out. The success of this seminar shows you again how our community of martial artists is strong and dedicated to each other. Thank you to everyone from all the different BJJ Schools that showed up to give much needed support to this lady! You have made a difference to her. We hope you in turn picked up some great techniques and had a good time on the mats!
