Our mission is to use the therapeutic benefits of training martial arts to help guide young people in a positive direction and to make training accessible to more people.

We accomplish our mission everytime a student tells us they feel safer at school, at home or in their neighborhoods. Because that sense of confidence will open doorways to new friendships, experiences and opportunities.

Every semester we see our program transform a new group of young Americans and lay a foundation for positive growth.

We can't accomplish our mission without you, generous donors, grappling academies, grappling coaches, volunteers and foundations. As a team we build a better future for ourselves, our families and our communities.
