Terere Kid’s Project is located in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro at the base of the Cantagalo favela. It was founded in 2012 by 5x world Champion Fernando “Terere” da Silva. The project, that is run by Master Terere and 2 close friends from the Cantagalo community, provides free jiu jitsu classes where the kids from the community can come to relax after school.
Our Mission is to improve the lives of children in the communities by providing a safe recreational enviroment away from the drugs and violence that they are often exposed to at a young age living in the favelas.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an outlet for many of the kids from the favela. It’s a safe place where they can come to train with their friends and learn from role models from the Cantagalo community. Jiu Jitsu is also a gateway to new oppurtunities for many athletes. Kids who werer previously limited to the comings and goings of their neighborhoods bow onto the mats with athletes from all over the world that come to train in Brazil
