Texas Strong: Jiu Jitsu Equipment Drive for Those Impacted By Hurricane Harvey


Our heart goes out to all those that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Many have lost everything. In this time of need we are banding together with the Jiu Jitsu community to help our fellow Jiu Jitsu brothers and sisters.  Jiu Jitsu may not be at the top of their list, but we want to relieve one less burden. We will be facilitating a Jiu Jitsu equipment drive for all those that lost their training equipment in this disaster. We are seeking the following items for MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

Items Needed:

New or gently used gi
Gym bags/gi bags
New or gently used rash guard and spats
New training shirts (for under gi)
New sports bras
New men’s protective gear (jock strap/cup)
White to black belts
New Mouth pieces
Travel size Hygiene product packs (soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste, etc)
Flip flops

Items will be collected at the Girls in Gis 8th anniversary event weekend on September 23rd and September 24th. Please bring your donations with you or drop them at the event if you are not attending.
