Philippines Jiu Jitsu Mission 2019

Join us in supporting The International Jiu Jitsu Education Fund's (IJEF) children of the Philippines!

IJEF is launching its newest mission to expand Jiu Jitsu practice across the globe.  In September of 2019, we're traveling to Philippines to deliver Jiu Jitsu kids' uniforms and supplies as our next global project.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that can have a dramatic and beneficial impact on the life of a child by promoting compassion, discipline, focus, healthy competition and community engagement.   We would like to create confident and driven young citizens who will serve as role models in their community.   Most children lack the resources to train for a martial art.  Our hope is to spread the positive benefits of Jiu Jitsu to as many children as possible, absolutely free.  We currently have "Roll Models" teaching free Jiu Jitsu in Guatemala, Ecuador, Brazil, Cambodia, India, Los Angeles... and Philippines will be next!

We are asking for your generous support to help bring brand new Jiu Jitsu uniforms for the kids in the Philippines in the Fall so they can participate in classes right away!  We also will share with them personal notes of encouragement from you.

Visit our website,, to see photos and stories from our projects worldwide. For all the children of IJEF and for ones who will join us soon, we want to say THANK YOU for helping IJEF Roll Toward A Better World.   This would not be possible without your caring support!  

Thank you!
