Help Me Fight For Others

Help Me Fundraise for Cancer Research

Tap Cancer Out

On April 26th I will be taking part in the 2014 Tap Cancer Out Spring BJJ Open for my third consecutive year. Along with my teammates, I'll be competing on behalf of those who are already in the fight of their lives - children with cancer.

I'm raising funds in support of Tap Cancer Out, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and their beneficiary organization, the St. Baldrick's Foundation.

Please help me support this special cause by making a donation of any amount. The process is fast, easy, secure and can be completed in just seconds.

I truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause!

About Me

As the head children's instructor at Soulcraft Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Hamden, I strive everyday to help children fight to better themselves. By developing self-discipline, responsibility and self-confidence our students learn to protect themselves both physically and mentally. Through the charity Tap Cancer Out, we hope to use Jiu Jitsu to protect children in a new manner - by fundraising to help fight childhood cancer.

Yes! I will help you with your fundraising!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art focusing largely on grappling and ground fighting. It utilizes natural body leverage and proper technique to obtain dominant control on the ground and, as a result, provides greater position for striking or submission holds.

It can be trained for self-defense, sport grappling (gi and no-gi) and mix martial arts competition. Sport Grappling events, like the Tap Cancer Out Spring Open, involves submission holds, but no striking.
