The art of Jiu-jitsu continues to shine on Hollywood screens. Joining the ranks of Rorion Gracie (Lethal Weapon) and the Machado brothers (Texas Rangers and Redbelt) is Paragon BJJ founder Ricardo "Franjinha" Miller. Franjinha is currently on location in Montreal, Canada working with actor Paul Walker (Fast and the Furious movie series) as the fight scene coordinator in his upcoming movie Brick Mansions. Paul has been a Jiu-Jitsu student for four years and will now have the opportunity to display his skills on the big screen as an undercover cop who tries to take down a ruthless crime lord.
With Franjinha’s guidance Paul's goal is to help display the beautiful Martial Art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu around the World. Paul says, “ I hope this is just the beginning. I plan to add BJJ in my future movies and help to put the name of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu out there. Bjj has helped me so much lately and I really fell in love with it, mainly through seeing Franjinha's own passion for it. His passion for Jiu-Jitsu is so contagious that if you learn from him you petty much fall in love with it.”
