Thanks to the courageous survivors of his heinous crimes, Larry Nassar will serve up to 175 years behind bars. To show our support, we would like to sponsor all survivors of his abuse to receive free training at any Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Certified Training Center worldwide. While we know that nothing can undo what was done, we have seen the incredible healing effect that learning self-defense has had on countless survivors we’ve had the privilege of working with, and we hope to extend these benefits to the survivors of Nassar’s crimes when they are ready.
