Favela Jiu Jitsu Featured on BJJ heroes

Nico Ball was recently featured on BJJ Heroes for her work with Terere Kids Project and Favela Jiu-Jitsu. 


Terere Kids Project is a social project in the Cantagalo favela that was started by 5x World Champion Fernando Terere. In 1999, when he was just a blue belt, Terere began teaching free jiu-jitsu classes in the community. 

Her experience working with Terere in Cantagalo inspired here to start Favela Jiu Jiu-Jitsu, an Instagram account that promoted different social projects and athletes from the favela that competed in Brazil and throughout the world.
