Jakarta’s anniversary: A review of a tumultuous year
About 100 years ago, two Brazilian brothers — Carlos Gracie and Helio Gracie — developed a ground-based self-defense system called Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). Today, it is one of the world’s fastest-growing martial arts.
One of the early Indonesian student adopters, I Made “Deddy” Hadi Wigraha, has made a name for himself in the Indonesian BJJ community as one of only eight Indonesians who have a red-bar black belt in the martial art and the only one who holds a second-degree black belt. From what was initially only a hobby, he is now passionate about introducing it to an even broader community in Indonesia. (JP/Donny Fernando)
