1 reason to not support Keiko Raca Brand

Mariste got one of her drawing stolen by Keiko Raca Brand.

As per her FB status.

I would like to thank all the persons who are taking time to write me a message to tell me anytime they see my artworks been used by others without respecting the copyright... or by taking the credit of my work. 

Concerning what happened with KeiKo Raça, it’s too late already [song “it’s too laaaate to apologiiiize ~TOO LAAAAAAAATE !!! ], coz the illustration with their logo on it get so popular on the internet that when I realizd what happened, thousands of people already liked it and shared it known as a “Keiko Raça’s product …”. I just don’t get it how a company that its selling itself has being so reliable can just stole the work of someone like that and consider itself as above copyright rules. 

I mean, I am currently
working with the communication team of an international company and I know that anything that will be posted on their social networks will always be double checked so the source of the information or assets used are correct and not illegal. 

So how come a big company like Keiko Raça could had done such mistake ? Please everybody, be conscious that any pics, illustration, music or video present on the internet DO BELONG TO SOMEONE, and you cannot used it and pretend it is yours, especially when the person you are stealing from had invested so much time and energy to produce his/her work. I know that nowadays, especially with Instagram it’s easy and super common to share a pics you like by posting it on your account, but as much as you can, please give the credit and share the source where you found it. 

Sometimes you won’t be able to find the legit author or source, but at least try, or else many other people might get abused just like it happened to me.
Thanks for your attention on that, sorry if I sound like a party pooper here, I’ll do much funnier CS next week.


  1. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on distinct blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content off their writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d choose to use some with all the content in my small weblog whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll provide a link on your own internet weblog. Many thanks sharing. brand strategy agencies

  2. Great post however , I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Bless you! best branding companies

What is this tab on your Jiu Jitsu belt?

As we are getting closer to graduation, students that are not getting promoted to the next belt will likely to receive stripes instead. If you do not have a black tab on your belt, we cannot give you stripes. Why do we have stripes? The Gracies decided to have a stripes system in order to be different from Judo. As it takes 1-3 years between belts, it is nice to receive stripes once in a while. How often do we give stripes? It is usually done during graduation which is usually held twice a year (August and December). What if you miss the graduation event? No worries, we will give them during the following classes.   How many stripes can I get? You can get up to 4 stripes. Is there a minimum number of stripes in order to get the next belt?   No, in fact some schools do not bother with stripes. You can move to the next belt even if you do not have any stripes. What is the red tab for? It is for the instructors. A blue

The curse of the blue belt

I will teach you a black belt magic trick in Jiu Jitsu. If you want a student to disappear: give him a blue belt. It is recurring event in the life of an instructor and a club. If you think the drop out of white belts is bad enough, the ratio of drop out of the blue belts is worst. I am not sure if I agree with statistics on this picture. But the issue is not really about arguing about the percentages of drop out but more on discussing the reasons for such drop out and what we can do to prevent it.  Reasons for the drop out: It takes a long time to achieve a blue belt. It average between 1-3 years. After 1-3 years of training, people loose interest and wants to start a new sport or hobby. The goal of the student was to achieve the blue belt and not the black belt. Personal situations changes over the years. Lot of people that start training are young single males with disposable income. Lot of them are at university level or are single. Add a few more years and they

Auckland BJJ Police Training

  On the 17th of January we had our second Police training session at Auckland BJJ. Several of our members are police officers and they had asked if they can use the Dojo to do some training and practice off duty. We were happy to help and Stu and Jora helped out organizing the training.  We covered a few techniques that we thought would help these officers, and then we did some sparing sessions where they could apply these techniques. Below is a video of one of our arrest the black belt sessions :-) Auckland BJJ is happy to help the NZ police. Here is a gratuitous shot of my daughter and a police car.
