Dear students, friends and supporters of NY Combat Sambo

During our 10 years of operation in NYC, we have built a reputation as being one of the best, most elite and successful martial arts gyms in the region; while still keeping an intimate and familial environment that students cherish! If you have ever watched our free youtube videos, trained or cross-trained with us, attended our throwdowns, or come to our open mat, please take a moment to consider helping us now.

Our club has been offered an opportunity to expand into a larger space on November 1st! This has been a long time coming and we are super excited to grow. Nevertheless, growth needs financing. Over time, our larger space will allow for greater student numbers, etc, which will make the gym self sustaining (as it is now in our smaller space). However, we do need funding to start off our expansion. This funding will cover increased rent during our transitional time, new mats, new crash pads, equipment, and other need capital improvements for a larger gym.

With your help, NY Combat Sambo will continue to grow and offer the best Sambo, Grappling, and MMA training in the NYC area! But, we can't do it without you!

Please take a moment to review our donor opportunities and consider helping this great club grow!

Every year, NYCS offers 3 lifetime memberships. It is an incredible value (cost of 2 years unlimited membership). This year we are again offering 3 as part of our fundraising campaign - the Total Victory Level. Several students have purchased lifetime memberships in the past and have made their money back...and saved money in the long run. It is a great opportunity and way to help the club!

Exciting news! I just placed the order of our new mat cover! Thanks to all of you for your support! The new place is looking great so far. We still have a long way to go if we hope to purchase the cage walls, crash pads, and other equipment we need. Please spread the word about our fundraiser! Thanks so much!!
