Often times, we refer to BJJ as community; by definition, a community is a group that shares a common characteristic and/or interest and perceives itself as distinct in some respect from the larger society within which it exists.

Last year, the east coast BJJ community came together to support one of its own, by hosting seminars in order to raise awareness to help with Andre Margutti’s battle against lymphocytic cancer (read the story here) and to help raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (http://www.lls.org).

This four-disc DVD set (runtime approximately 370 minutes) entitled Fighting Cancer, showcases some footage from some of these great seminars.

The various techniques shown in this DVD set ranges from beginner level cross chokes from the mount to some advanced reverse De La Riva sweeps. There is something for everyone!

Instructors include:
Steve Bowers • Jamie Cruz • Justin Garcia • Jojo Guarin • Dave Jacobs • Charlie Liu • Rick Macauley • Jeff Mitchell • Luis Pantoja • Mike Piccolomini • Salvatore Sanguinetti • Chris Savarese • Jason Scully • Augie Vogel • Hillary Williams

“A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This DVD set Shows a few of the academies, instructors, and students who participated in the Andre Margutti Fighting Cancer seminar series that took place over the late summer and early fall of 2010. We would like to thank all the instructors, academies, and students who donated their time, resources, and money by participating in these seminars. We hope that the techniques shown on this DVD set will help improve your jiu-jitsu and that you will be inspired to continue to help others. Many of us believe that jiu-jitsu is more than a sport. It is a lifestyle. We hope this DVD set shows that the jiu-jitsu lifestyle is a positive One.” – Dave Jacobs, Fairfax Jiu-jitsu
