This talk covers not only a response to a rape but also a deep insight into how these two young men see their art and how it fits in the world
On New Years Eve, something happened that shocked the jiu-jitsu community around the world. A woman was raped by two Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in Washington D.C.. Even more disheartening, was the fact that the victim was also a jiu-jitsu student, and she trained AT THE SAME SCHOOL AS THE ASSAILANTS! Aside from reminding us how despicable some human beings truly are, this incident raises some very interesting questions about the moral responsibilities of martial arts instructors and their students. In this video Ryron and Rener discuss their thoughts on the incident and explain what martial arts instructors can do to reduce the likelihood that this ever happens again. Share this video with all the martial artists you know, and we just might save a life.
