   Project Warrior Grappling

Our Mission

Project Warrior is a part of our non-profit community outreach efforts.  This program began in August of 2015 as an extension of our mission statement to give back to the Russellville and greater River Valley community through offering a free program for local law enforcement officers, current and former military personnel, ROTC cadets, Firefighters and EMS technicians.

Our Program

Project Warrior offers free weekly Grappling classes at our facility in Russellville, AR.  Anyone and everyone can benefit from training and anyone is welcome to attend training, regardless of age, gender, race, religion or sexual orientation.  

Our Atmosphere

It is at our academy that you will find our veterans and current or former active military, National Guard and reserve members.  Project Warrior is even open to ROTC cadets.  Project Warrior is also open to all members of law enforcement who are employed full time, part time, or as reserves for any law enforcement agency.  For instance, this would include state, city, or county police officers, city or county sheriff officers, college campus police, and others.

The level of instruction was top notch and the training was intense, but what really drew me in was the judgment free and friendly atmosphere. No one looked down at me because I was a newbie to the sport. Everyone was helpful and encouraging. Read more….

WE SUPPORT OUR VETERANS

This program works to provide three things to our members who are veterans:

Camaraderie

One of the biggest transitions from military to civilian life is the reduction or loss of the close-knit friendships that develop in military life.  Because wrestling, grappling, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are up close and personal sports, friendships and connections made in training often extend away from the gym, creating a strong sense of camaraderie between members.

Continuing Education

Both the Army and Marines are teaching grappling techniques to service members.  Many of the techniques we cover in Project Warrior Grappling will have been touched upon in these military hand-to-hand programs.

Physical and Mental Health

There have been numerous case studies that have found being a part of a supportive community and weekly exercise are all linked to improved physical and mental wellness.

WE BACK THE BLUE

We focus on three things in our program that are especially suited to law enforcement officers:

Escapes

Nothing is more important than getting out of a dangerous situation, and coming home unharmed.  Learning how to get out of trouble safely and effectively is an art form that takes lots of practice, and we focus on this important training element.

Control

Being able to maintain effective control of a position over someone is a key idea in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  

Arm and Shoulder Locks

Nothing is more important than getting out of a dangerous situation, and coming home unharmed.  Learning how to get out of trouble safely and effectively is an art form that takes lots of practice, and we focus on this important training element.
