M2 Magazine – Fighting for Peace

The head trainer of a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy called the Combat Room might not seem like the sort of person to talk to peace, enlightenment, mindfulness and mediation.

Beyond being a black belt in BJJ, Prof. Vanderson Pires has lived with monks and has dedicated his life to not only bringing mindfulness into his life, but sharing it with others.

He shared his work with prisoners, what stopped him from running away to live with monks for the rest of his life and how to find happiness in a world of uncertainty.
