Video: Depression: Jiu-Jitsu Academies as Resourceful Havens for its Students

The Jiu-Jitsu community serves a much more meaningful purpose than most understand. With that said I recorded this video to explain what that means, especially after losing a beloved friend and Jiu-Jitsu black belt to depression this week.

The resources that a Jiu-Jitsu circle can offer are among the most powerful ones out there. Despite not being enough to save our friend, Dave, I hope to bring awareness to how we can be a valuable source of support to anyone going through a rough patch at any time in their lives. - Crosley Gracie
