The Jean Jacques Machado Academy is proud to announce our partnership with the WE DEFY FOUNDATION.

The WE DEFY FOUNDATION provides combat veterans coping with military connected disabilities a long term means to overcome their challenges through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and fitness training. As a WDF approved training facility, the JJM Academy honors scholarships that are provided by the WDF. Scholarships are reserved for veterans who have never trained Jiu-Jitsu or are currently a white belt.
