Adopt a Social Project

What is your perception of the word "Tribe"?

A good definition is: "A tribe is a group or community with similar values or interests."

If you train or have trained jiu-jitsu, an academy is an excellent example of a tribe. A community that challenges themselves mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually through the incredible martial art and personal development tool called jiu-jitsu.

It doesn't matter what country you're from; jiu-jitsu is an international language. If you visit a country where you don't speak the language, however, if you "speak" jiu-jitsu, most likely, you will find a friendly "Tribe" to train and meet people, not always like everything else in life.

Do you believe that if more people trained jiu-jitsu, the World would be a better place? Most likely, your answer is yes; however, millions of people don't have access to it because they are unaware of jiu-jitsu's existence, and most can't afford it, especially in impoverished communities worldwide.

To spread the message that the World could be a better place if more people trained in jiu-jitsu, we need your help supporting the less fortunate tribes worldwide.

My question is:

"Are you interested or committed to the cause?"

When you are interested in something, you do things when it is convenient, like helping out once in a while, which there is nothing wrong with it. However, we are looking for people who are COMMITTED because when you are committed, you do whatever it takes to accomplish your mission.

And our mission is to inspire, impact, and improve these kids' and young adults' lives. So, if you can commit to a minimum of a twelve-month sponsorship period to guarantee its sustainability, CLICK HERE!
