Sad and unexpected news for the BJJ and acting community this Saturday.

Actor and BJJ brown belt Paul Walker passed away after a car accident in Santa Clarita, California.

The star of the series “Fast and Furious” was said to be returning from a charity event when the car he was riding as a passenger hit a tree and caught on fire.

But, I want to thank you for the great times and memories that we shared together. I will Never forget It. Go in peace my friend.”
