Because of the international nature of this post we will do this one in English.
We are proud to announce that as of today, Brasa Team Holland is the first Dutch affiliated academy of BJJ Globetrotters!
BJJ Globetrotters is a BJJ community under the guidance of.. well everyone who is affiliated, but is led by black belt and author of the book BJJ Globetrotters, Christian Graugart.
BJJ GLOBETROTTERS IS A WORLD-WIDE COMMUNITY OF TRAVELERS AGAINST JIU JITSU POLITICS.
We offer an alternative to traditional affiliation within Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Membership of the community is open for anyone (both individuals and academies), and the main requirement to join is to spread—and agree with—our message.
The members doesn’t represent a specific person, academy, instructor or lineage. They are merely a world-wide community of people, who share a common set of values:
We don’t pay each other any affiliation fees
We wear any patches we like on our gis
We are free to represent any (or no) team in competition
We encourage training with anyone regardless of affiliation
We are willing to promote anyone who deserves it—members or not
We arrange camps, seminars and visit each other for training and fun
We believe everyone is equal both on and off the mats
We strive to enjoy life, people and the world through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
BJJ Globetrotters is well known for their BJJ camps which resulted in the biggest ever BJJ Open Mat during the summercamp in Leuven back in 2015.
This year there are already two Brasa Black Belts booked for their camps, Wim Deputter in Leuven and Kenny Polmans in Kopenhagen.
