American Jiu-Jitsu Academy is proud to be an approved training facility with the We Defy Foundation. When we opened our academy, it was entirely our vision to create a community for anyone and everyone to gather, train hard, and overcome obstacles on and off the mats. Regardless of the type of person, where they come from, or where they are in life, they can find a 'home' and a mission with us. We Defy Foundation encompasses everything we hope to be, so when the opportunity presented itself, it was a no-brainer. We wanted to be a part of this movement right away!

The We Defy Foundation helps disabled combat veterans begin a journey within the Jiu-Jitsu community upon life after the service. They provide one year of paid jiu-jitsu training and two training GIs to get you started! If you or someone you know is interested in pursuing this opportunity, please reach out to us!
