Head Youth Outreach Coach Jerry Cepeda on the mats with his students at the Eric Solorio Academy

Knowing how much martial arts has done for our own lives, we're committed to making that training available to underserved communities who have not historically had as much access to quality instruction. So, Foundation coaches volunteer their time twice a week to run an on-site after-school Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu self-defense program at the Eric Solorio Academy on Chicago's Southwest side free of charge to students.

Every membership at Foundation Headquarters (2238 W. Roscoe, Chicago, IL 60618) supports our Youth Outreach program.
