Gracie Barra Frisco Partners with We Defy Foundation to Support Disabled Combat Veterans

Updated: Jun 20

Frisco, Texas - 6.25.2024 - Gracie Barra Frisco is proud to announce its new partnership with the We Defy Foundation, a Texas nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of United States military disabled combat veterans through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and physical fitness training. This collaboration marks a significant step forward in our mission to support veterans and provide them with the resources they need to overcome their physical and mental challenges.

As an official We Defy Foundation Training Facility, Gracie Barra Frisco will now offer specialized Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu programs tailored for disabled combat veterans. 

Our commitment is to provide a supportive and inclusive environment where veterans can harness the physical and psychological benefits of martial arts training. This partnership will enable us to extend our reach and impact more veterans, helping them build resilience, improve their physical fitness, and foster a sense of community.

"We are honored to be selected as a We Defy Foundation Training Facility," said Gabe Arges, Head Professor & World Champion Black Belt at Gracie Barra Frisco. "Our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality training and support to veterans, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact this program will have on their lives."

Through this partnership, veterans enrolled in the We Defy Foundation's program will receive a full year of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training at Gracie Barra Frisco. This includes regular class attendance, private lessons, and access to our state-of-the-art facilities, which comply with all regulations set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We will also provide each veteran with two sets of our academy uniforms (gis), ensuring they have everything they need to begin their training journey.

To celebrate this partnership, Gracie Barra Frisco will be participating in We Defy's national fundraising campaigns in the spring and fall. We encourage our community and supporters to join us in promoting this cause on social media and other channels. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who have bravely served our country.
