Special needs jiu jitsu program

People with special needs have many skills and talents that are often overlooked by many.  It is important to empower all people, especially those with special needs, to succeed and be resilient in the face of adversity.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will teach these students how to be strong not only physically, but also increase self-confidence. 

Koa Training Academy and Mauricio Alonso, 3rd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and pro mixed marital arts fighter, will be starting a jiu jitsu program for people with special needs. 

We are selling 2 different shirts to help start and fund this program.  Adult shirts are $30 and youth are $20.  Please note what design, size, and shipping address if purchasing.  

If you do not want to purchase a shirt, any monetary donation will be greatly appreciated.  

Thank you!4931336_15268705470_r.jpeg
