Sankofa Martial Arts community outreach

This fundraiser will help continue the efforts of Sankofa Martial Arts initiative of using martial arts instruction to build positive community building structures  across poverty stricken regions in Africa.

due to local corruption and outside oppressive systems, economic development is severely stagnated across the continent, as a result,
there is a serious lack of positive character building organizations that gives African youth positive outlets and skills necessary to build up their own communities. Sankofa Martial arts is helping address those issues through martial arts. Partaking regularly in martial arts training develop confidence and positive character traits that encourages self determination. It also can create financial opportunities for those who decide to compete on a professional level. We also teach gender based self defense.

Since 2015 the founder of Sankofa martial arts has been traveling to west Africa sharing his martial arts knowledge. He is a professional international mixed martial artist who specializes in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Since the work begin there, there has been a serge in the popularity of Brazilian jiu-jitsu and mixed martial arts in West Africa . Funding is now needed to help further the cause and establish a physical training facility that will also serve as a community center.
