Jiu Jitsu Roots

Last night I had my Jiu Jitsu Roots painted on the wall at De Boa Jiu Jitsu Academy.  I think it is important for any belt to know your Jiu Jitsu lineage, the people who came before you had a huge role in shaping your Jiu Jitsu Identity.  The portrait starts with Mitsuyo Maeda > Carlos Gracie > George Gracie > Octávio de Almeida > Moises Murad > Giva Santana > Andrew Gardineer.  It is humbling to follow these great Jiu Jitsu Practitioners,  I look forward to continue shaping the Black Belts of the future at Surprise Arizona’s very own Lotus Club Jiu Jitsu Affiliate.

A special thanks to Greg “Bucher Lion” for doing such an amazing job on the painting.  He was really able to capture the Lotus Club Lineage and honor the great men in it. Check him out at here if you need any art work done.
