This fall, The Way Family Dojo is hosting a BJJ seminar to benefit military members, veterans, and first responders – or “Oath Takers.” The Gis for GIs organization strives to help these active-duty service members cope with the stress of their work through martial arts.


Gis for GIs

Founded in 2015, Gis for GIs sends martial arts uniforms (Gis) to servicemen and women to either begin or continue their martial arts journey.

While martial arts has a lot to offer everyone, the goal of this organization is to help each recipient of a Gi use martial arts to cope with the stress of their jobs. Many military members, veterans, and first responders struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder, trauma, brain injuries, and other conditions leading to depression, anxiety, stress, and suicide.

BJJ: Support and Life Skills

BJJ is a workout for both the body and the mind. And like other martial arts styles, BJJ teaches you skills to navigate life. It can be a humbling experience that helps you learn how to remain calm no matter what life brings your way. BJJ can help Oath Takers fill a void in their lives while getting some much-needed support through dark times.

The martial arts community provides camaraderie, support, and a sense of fellowship and belonging that helps Oath Takers regain trust and build relationships, many of which will last a lifetime. And with each Gi we send out, our Oath Taker martial arts community grows.
