Designed by Seattle-area artist Javier Villalpando of Revolver MMA to support Luciano Mariano and his first trip the United States to compete at the IBJJF World Championships.
JamminBJJ is a non-profit affiliate of the CarlyStowellFoundation that brings gis to athletes that need them, both in Brazil and the US (Give the Gift of a Gi). We also provide financial aid so that all athletes can experience participation in BJJ.
Luciano Mariano is a blue belt BJJ fighter from the municipality of Japeri in Rio. He lost both of his arms at the elbow after a crib fire and competes despite being a double-arm amputee. He will be competing in his first ever international tournament in the rooster-weight division at Worlds next weekend. His trip was made possible through JamminBJJ, The Challenged Athlete Foundation and donations from the ever-supportive Jiu-Jitsu community. Jiu-Jitsu can change lives, build character, give hope and help athletes fulfill their lifelong dreams.
