Watch the 'Roll' Documentary and Support BJJ in California

Fightland Blog

By Fightland Staff

Alongside his company Eat Films, filmmaker Dan Lewis is working on a documentary about the jiu jitsu scene in Southern California. It's rare to see such an exciting BJJ project, seemingly chock-full of our favorite West Coast grapplers—including Joel Tudor, Buchecha, and JT Torres. The film takes a look at the history of the art in the region and explore the culture of the modern day practitioners keeping it alive and well.

The full film will be released at the end of the year. We can't wait, because this trailer is making us want to get up off our laptops, walk away from our desks, and go roll.
