ROLL: Jiu Jitsu in SoCal

A documentary we put together following a short trip to California in late 2014. We met some amazing and inspiring people in the short time that we were there and this film is a slight glimpse into the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lifestyle in Southern California.
We hope that at some point in the future we will have the opportunity to visit more schools and places in the state and put together a more in depth film.

Hope you enjoy it.

A collaboration film between Eat Films & Progress Jiu Jitsu

The trip was completely self-funded by James and myself and we are making the film available to watch for free online.

What we did decide to do was set up a Just Giving charity page, that way if anyone would like to donate they can do so and help a good cause. This can be found here:
