Help Create a Martial Arts Center

$520 of $54,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 10 months
Please help us create a permanent, nonprofit martial arts center in Napa.  For the past 8 years, we have been renting space at a youth center but the hours are limited.  Your donations will help us secure enough funding to commit to a permanent location and be open fulltime.

This won't be just a martial arts school--it will be a martial arts center where students can take classes, practice on their own, do their homework after school, watch martial arts movies, and stay off the streets!

Our goal is to provide quality, traditional martial arts to at-risk and low-income children, teens and adults.  We already have several students who are amazing athletes but could help so many more if we could be open fulltime.  Most of our students cannot afford the tuitions charged by for-profit martial arts schools and your donations will go directly to helping them learn discipline, respect, perseverance, and all the wonderful benefits that come with training.  We also foster long-term goals such as going to college, advancing learning, and saving money so that the students can someday buy a house.

We are ready to open the school and just need to reach our goal.  As soon as we reach it, we will commit to the location.  Will you help us?

We are Napa's only 501(c)(3) nonprofit martial arts school and all of your donations are tax-deductible; you will receive a receipt for tax purposes.  Furthermore, as a donor, you are welcome to come and enjoy classes for free at our new school for one month.

We offer classes in Taekwondo, Hapkido and Kumdo; we will be offering Kendo at the new school.  Furthermore, other martial arts and yoga schools will be offered teaching times--that is what will make us a center!

We're making progress! We had a great advisory board meeting a couple of weeks ago and have decided to put together a fundraiser at a winery (lots of great food, wine and merriment!) later on this Summer and also host an open Taekwondo tournament in Napa early in 2019. Big steps! B-)

Our classes with be Monday through Friday after school and into the evening. Saturday morning, as well. During the times we will not be teaching martial arts, we will allow other organizations to use our school: yoga, mommy-and-me, meditation, and so on. Thus the concept of "martial arts center"!
