4 Gracies Seminar for Javier Torres Photo Album

Ten Jiu-Jitsu Black Belts, including four Gracie family members came together in Long Beach, California to teach a benefit seminar for the family of a student who tragically died in car accident last month. Between all participants and others who donate to the cause, little under 10K was collected and passed on to Javier Torres's family. While nothing can compare to the pain and discomfort of a sudden death in anyone's family, the energy felt inside Neutral Grounds Jiu-Jitsu Academy last Thursday, September 12 certainly showed his family how much he was he was loved. It was unbelievable. 

Witnessing all of Javier's teammates and friends coming together to support their JiuJitsu fellow was one of the most inspiring things I've ever been a part of. The demonstration of camaraderie, brotherhood and love by everyone in there is what life is all about. It's what Martial Arts is all about. Selflessness, compassion, humility, unity. May Javier's family find strength and comfort in this difficult time, and as for all of us who were there to celebrate his life that day, we were honored to be part of this special moment. Huge props to Neutral Grounds Head instructor Evaldo lima for the beautiful initiative. Rest in peace, "Javi".
