Building A Better World With Brazilian Jiu Jitsu | Frank Curreri | TEDxUNLV

“For centuries Jiu Jitsu’s sophisticated fighting techniques were a closely-guarded secret of monks, Samurai and royal families. But over the past 20 years, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) has been spreading across the globe. What may surprise people is that Jiu Jitsu is about much more than kicking butt — it is a phenomenal people builder and path to Zen. BJJ black belt and journalist Frank Curreri offers his vision for elevating this life-changing art to the next level and making the world a better place.”
