Leadership Workshop in Recife, Brazil 03/30/2024

Check out our collective impact!

We’re thrilled to have sponsored and participated in the Dreamroot Leadership Institute leadership worship in Recife, Brazil last weekend. It was an incredible experience connecting with local leaders who are making a difference in their communities. We’re looking forward to facilitating more exciting events during our Brazil camp this October! These trips are not just a ton of fun, but they are truly life changing.

Check out the full video on DreamRoot’s YouTube channel:

During the workshop, we had the privilege of working with 43 amazing local leaders from across northeast Brazil. Together, we delved into conflict resolution skills and even squeezed in some BJJ training sessions. It was a time of laughter, learning, and connecting over games, storytelling, and shared meals.

We’re immensely proud to support these leaders who are running life-changing social initiatives in over 10 communities, impacting over 600 students and community members. We have the privilege of working with them regularly throughout the year on leadership coaching and BJJ program operational advising.

This is what coming together as a BJJ community for collective social impact looks like. A huge thanks to our Team Passos community and those who have supported DreamRoot. Let’s continue this beautiful work together. The academy is just the platform. Jiu Jitsu is just a tool. It is all about relationships and relationships are what transforms.

Consistency over complexity.

High performers stick to the basics. They develop, refine, and execute a fundamental routine that positions them for success.

They then commit to walking out that routine with a level of focus and excellence.

Happy New Year!

As we step into 2024, let’s remember the power of small steps. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Each decision to grow, every roll on the mat, contributes to significant and lasting accomplishments.

Rather than drastic changes, it’s the daily adjustments and habits that lead to transformation. Maintaining a clear vision and enduring through challenges build the character and strength to reach new heights. In our BJJ journey, every class, every decision to improve not only benefits ourselves but also fosters the growth of our teammates.

This year, envision the possibilities. This week marks a fresh start to update your goals and overcome self-limiting beliefs. You’re capable of challenging things, and it’s possible to live the life of your dreams.

Reach out to our lead instructors if you’d like to discuss your training or life goals. Let’s stay hungry for advancement, press on toward our dreams, and embrace growth together. Here’s to a year filled with transformative choices, decisive moments, and the courage to create positive chang! 💪
