Jiu Jitsu Tribe

Jiu Jitsu Tribe's mission is to inspire, impact, and improve the lives of at-risk children and young adults in impoverished communities for free in the United States & Brazil. 501 C3 Nonprofit organization founded in 2010.

We introduce jiu-jitsu as a personal development tool for kids & young adults in partnership with Mental Health related organizations, like Behavioral centers and local Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academies.

We also support social projects that offer free jiu-jitsu classes to their communities. We do so by providing facility improvements with construction, new equipment like new mats and uniforms, and, most importantly, guaranteeing the sustainability of the programs by offering a monthly salary.
