It was on this fateful day one year ago that we lost a great man. Paul Walker was not only a BJJ Brown Belt and beloved star, but he was also the founder of Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW), an organization that assists victims of catastrophic events that occur around the world. He was 40 years young.
Paul Walker was widely known for his starring role in the Fast and Furious Franchise. It was lesser known that he was among the many stars who practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He had made it to the brown belt level before his untimely death in an egregious car accident. He was awarded his black belt posthumously.
He may be gone, but his name lives on in honor!
