YOUTH MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY NEEDS HELP TO RAISE $30,000
Ultimate Protector Martial Arts Academy Youth Training Program is the life embodiment of Master Soke Joe Dubose. We are asking for your financial support, no matter how small or large a contribution that will support our current financial needs. We’ve been required to fix our rented space at a cost of $30K and need to help families struggling to keep their children training. We need community support and without it we worry we will not be able to continue our mission we started on almost 4 years ago.
The mission of our Youth Training Program is to provide “every student” the highest quality training and individual attention required to achieve goals for a confident, respect based, healthy, purpose driven life. We train youth in no bullying, self-defense, fitness, conditioning and/or competition. We believe Martial Arts is a lifestyle that can enhance everyone’s daily living skills and improved path to be a good person with positive self-esteem and respect for others.
We specialize in children that have discipline/behavioral problems. We serve children with special needs including ADHD and Autism. We create an environment where children can participate and feel “normal”. We have had amazing results with these special children.
We are proud to serve those who do not have the same opportunities as their peers. We work to avoid turning away any child, family or person because of their inability to pay. It’s amazing to see children achieve and experience the reaction of their parents where others have given up on them or they are not included with other children because they are not deemed “equal” or “enough”.
We hope that you see the benefit of contributing to our Martial Art’s Youth Training Program for underserved children for a better future.
