Curitiba is known for producing great athletes like Wanderlei Silva and Maurício Shogun. But the sport doesn’t stop there. Besides the large number of professional athletes produced, academies are keen on social responsibility, and they have begun developing projects for children, youths, and adults living on the outskirts of the city.

Gile Ribeiro academy works in the social-benefit field and directs projects helping dozens of children and teenagers in Curitiba and the greater metropolitan area. They even put together state and national Jiu-Jitsu championships.

Watch a clip of Rogélson’s classes:
