Forming black belts on and off the mat

The main goal is to finance the extension of the project scope created by Olympic medalist Flavio Canto, his coach Geraldo Bernardes and friends in 2003. The proposal is to use sport as an instrument to promote educational and social transformation by forming black belts on and off the mat. Currently, there are more than 3,000 children, adolescents and young adults who benefits from the project in eleven centers located in Rio de Janeiro, Mato Grosso, and Rio Grande do Norte.
