Live Jiu-Jitsu joins forces with Toys for Tots

Live Jiu-Jitsu is partnering with Toys for Tots this holiday season to help them achieve their goal of delivering a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters.
Created by its co-founder, the 4th degree Black Belt, Gustavo Dantas, Live Jiu-Jitsu is a non-profit organization that aims to inspire positive change in the lives of impoverished communities through the study and implementation of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. They provide opportunities for students to embrace the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu while enhancing their livelihood.

“This partnership will bring awareness to both organizations. Live Jiu-Jitsu has been able to support Jiu-Jitsu social projects in Brazil for the past few years, and now we want to spread this in the United States. Most of the social project students can not even afford a gi, imagine affording a competition. We have been able to buy new gi’s and paying the registration fees for them to compete at the Brazilian Nationals for example. We were also able to buy new mats for some of the projects as well.” Says Gustavo.

The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas and to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children
