"A Jiu-Jitsu Way of Life"

After 5 months, over 6 hours of actual video and MANY, many hours of editing, I’m pleased to finally bring you the finished product.

This Mini-Documentary touches on how Active Duty Military members, dependents and civilian contractors use Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to cope with the stressors of everyday life while being forward deployed in Yokosuka, Japan, as well as how Jiu-Jitsu has affected their lives.

Thank you to all those that have helped and contributed.
