Braulio Estima was recently seen doing his part for charity as he took part in a 24 hour rolling marathon for Reorg, an organization that aims to give drive and purpose to ex-service members through the use of BJJ. The foundation regularly does 24 hour rolling marathons that are hosted by individual gyms around the world and they have a number of other high-profile supporters in both the BJJ and MMA community like Jean-Jacques Machado, Roger Gracie, Kenny Florian, and Dan Hardy. Estima shared progress updates of the 24 hour rolling session at his gym, Gracie Barra Birmingham, in several posts to his official Instagram account.
There are a huge number of non-profit organizations and charities working within the BJJ community and they focus on a wide variety of areas. Some might concentrate on the benefits that the sport can bring to children in their development and then set goals of bringing BJJ to underprivileged children who otherwise might not be able to take part in it. Others, like Reorg, focus on adults instead and helping those who might find a greater sense of balance and structure in their life through the use of BJJ training.
Even one of the greatest UFC fighters in the history of the sport, Georges St-Pierre, has started a charitable organization to help end bullying through the use of sports. Throughout all of the different charities that work within the BJJ community, the common theme is that the sport is good for everyone and can help improve your life in ways you might never have imagined. Braulio Estima is almost certainly among those who know the benefit that BJJ can bring to people, which is likely part of the reason he is such an ardent supporter of the Reorg charity.
