Further to our (very!) brief chat on Facebook, I hoped your readers might be able to help me with the project I'm organising.
I hope people will donate generously, and all the proceeds will go directly to Cancer Research UK, the world's largest cancer research charity.
Due to personal tragity I've been motivated to do something, albeit small, to raise some money for cancer research. I'm competing at the event that my instructor Lee Catling is organising, the South East BJJ Open in October, wearing a HOT PINK GI. I'll also be sporting a matching pink mohawk, and anything else that will grab plenty of attention.
In the meantime, I wanted to know if I could somehow involve you in this. I realise you're very busy, but if you could mention what I'm doing on your website and your facebook page, I know people would pay this cause even greater attention. I've only just set up the donations page through JustGiving.com, which a safe way for people to make their contributions, and I've just made a Facebook page to promote it as well. Please take a minute to look at them and tell me what you think.
BJJ Legends would like to extend a heart felt welcome to Rubens "Cobrinha" Charles. Cobrinha opened his Los Angeles academy back in March. The grand opening was the day after the Pans. A smashing success with about 100 people in attendance. On hand and teaching techniques were numerous famous Alliance star black belts including Lucas Lepri, Bruno Malfacine, Michael & Michel Langhi brothers. Even the head of Alliance JJ, Fabio Gurgel taught. After the seminar, students sparred with the black belts again including Fabio Gurgel! Fabio keep submitting, non stop!
Also attending the party was Cobrinha's even more famous cakes -- according to my sourses very delisious.

On Tuesday 2/1/11 Braulio Estima underwent cervical artificial disc replacement surgery to correct two prolapsed disks, C4 & C5. Dr. Peter Hamlyn of Princess Grace Hospital in London performed the surgery. Braulio is a 3x world Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion.
In June 2010 Braulio injured his neck in a weird training accident; while going for a takedown his partner countered and he landed on his forehead with his partner on top. He was paralyzed for a few minutes and spent three days in intensive care. He was off the mats for four months.
He surprised everyone when he announced he would compete in the IBJJF European Open January 30th. His surgery was scheduled for February 1st. Braulio was moved to compete by the passing of his friend Steve Fan.
