Jiu jitsu is called the “gentle art” because it doesn’t take brute strength or size to do it or be good at it. So what better martial art form to use for therapy and rehabilitation of disabled veterans, police officers, firefighters, and first responders. Aside from the effectiveness of jiu-jitsu as a form of self-defense and fitness, it brings a sense of belonging to something, a “pack” as we refer to it, back to our members that they long for after leaving their respective services. It truly is a family and team atmosphere in each and every school that breeds unity and comradery which our members love and appreciate tremendously.
Believe it or not, there are paraplegic’s, amputees, and even those born without their complete limbs that practice jiu-jitsu and we hope to have them come speak, train, and inspire our very own members in the future. Our members gain confidence and pride and are equipped with invaluable tools to face the adversity and challenges in life that occur. Our members are fully sponsored to participate in this program and their family members receive special pricing to participate as well so that it is a family affair.
