Our Mission is to educate our island’s communities about the benefits of the grappling arts as it applies to our daily lives. To empower individuals through hands on instructions or improved access to instruction of the grappling arts and to award scholarships to individuals and groups who participate in grappling arts specifically in the State of Hawai’i.

The Hawaii JiuJitsu Foundation helps our states’ grappling community make a difference as we inspire the spirit of giving and by investing in people and solutions to benefit every island community.

At the Hawaii JiuJitsu Foundation, we strive to use both our heads and our hearts to help Hawaii in meaningful and measurable ways. By partnering with our network of Grappling Leaders, Influencers and Supporters, we utilize their collective wisdom to make effective decisions, powered by philanthropic passion, to empower our grappling  communities on and off the mat.

Hawaii JiuJitsu Foundation seeks to provide grapplers with skills that help them build self esteem, confidence and discipline. We aim to propel young lives and prepare them for the future by providing affordable access to connect with mentors, peers, and community leaders. We meet this by:

  • Partnering with Like Minded Organizations that shares the same values of promoting a healthy well-being, offering a safe environment for getting kids off the streets or out of the house
  • Linking individuals to connect with and learn from high level athletes in the art of grappling.
  • A chance to connect with a network of peers that are trying to grow and excel in the sport of grappling
