One of the main Brazilian MMA events, Bitetti Combat has for some time now taken up the campaign against drugs alongside the Rio OAB (Brazilian lawyer’s association). Now the action taken will be even more incisive.
An initiative by the Commission for Drugs Policies, a center for special attendance for drugs users in Rio de Janeiro has been created.
“I was invited by Walderley Rebello, the founder of the Commission for Drugs Policies and the president of the OAB in Rio, to participate in this great project. Through the martial arts we hope to offer aid to a number of drug addicts,” says Bitetti.
The launch is set for the coming 8th of July at 5:30pm at the CAARJ lawyers bureau.
