Save Clifton Jiu Jitsu School

In 2012, Clifton Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu opened its doors for the first time, offering a warm atmosphere for people of all ages and walks of life, the opportunity to train and study Jiu-Jitsu. Classes started filling up as students came to learn from Professor Josef Manuel, a third degree black-belt under Jiu-Jitsu legend Master Robson Moura. Professor Manuel is a well known figure in the golbal Jiu-Jitsu community both as a world champion competitor and as an excellent instructor. Currently there are over 40 students enrolled with the school showing steady growth.
Unfortunately on December 17 the school was flooded causing a significant amount of damage. The school was informed a couple days ago that the repairs will not be covered by the landlord and if $5000 will not be raised by January 7, the school will need to shut down.
Please help these Clifton Brazilian Jiu-jitsu to continue to positively impact the lives of current as well as future students.
