Warrior Life is rolling! 15 inner city kids and teens from Grove Park are now committed and training 2-3 times a week at Buckhead Jiu-Jitsu under black belts Samuel Joseph and Derek Kaivani. We are seeing some real progress not just in their Jiu-Jitsu and health, but in life too. Grades going up, more focus and more confidence, deeper relationships, and they just plain love it. A real team is forming and we are excited to see what will happen in 2017 with this youth development program.
Since many of our kids/teens can't afford to pay $ for their own Gis, academy membership, and tournament fees, we give them various jobs serving the community through Restore Life (The Community Development Non-Profit Danny runs). We don't believe in handouts, just hand ups, and this gives each kid skin in the game and helps them not take this privilege for granted. By donating to this cause you are not only helping the underprivileged get top notch Jiu-Jitsu training, but also empowering them to serve their community, develop good work ethic, and earn every minute on the mat!
If you want to help sponsor kids in this program or volunteer, here is how!
