In 2013 Jiu Jitsu Brotherhood joined with filmmaker Stuart Cooper to create the ‘Spirit of Jiu Jitsu’, a short-film about the BJJ lifestyle that was shot in Phuket, Thailand.

The film became very popular and there were several requests to create a sequel.

After much planning and preparation we managed to get to Japan in late 2016 to shoot ‘The Soul of Jiu Jitsu’.

This time Stuart was not available, so we went with Doug Rothwell. Doug is a talented, young videographer from Australia with a lot of experience making martial arts films.

A huge amount of time and effort when into creating this video and we really tried to show the essence of ‘the gentle art’.

If you enjoy it please share it with those you feel would appreciate.
