Talkshow host Oprah Winfrey launched her contest to choose a reality show for her channel, the Oprah Network TV Channel. And Jiu-Jitsu could be the winner.

Brothers Ryron and Rener put together a model for the program that could popularize Jiu-Jitsu even more.

Rener tells it: “Every day, hundreds of thousands of kids are terrified to go to school out of fear of bullies. These kids are depressed, have no self-confidence, and unfortunately, many of them are borderline suicidal. On our TV show, the Gracie Brothers will sweep the nation’s schools to find the children who are most victimized by bullies. These children will be brought to the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy where, over the period of several weeks, they will be “bullyproofed” from the inside out. By empowering the children – physically, mentally, and emotionally – we will give them the confidence to take a stand against bullies so they can take control of their lives. Without confidence, a child has no chance at success, and on this show we are going to make sure that every child gets a fair chance. We have successfully “bullyproofed” thousands of kids over the years and having this show on the air would enable us to share our methods with millions of people.”
