Founded in 2015, Gis 4 GIs was formulated with a single objective -- help active duty military members, veterans, and first responders (Oath Takers) cope with the stress of their respective jobs. This organization donates Gis (traditional martial arts uniforms) to those who have taken the oath to protect us. These Gis allow servicemen and servicewomen to begin and/or continue their martial arts journey, and with it, the journey to health and mental wellbeing.
The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and martial arts community offers camaraderie and a sense of fellowship that helps Oath Takers by providing a support system and instilling trust. Through BJJ and MMA, Oath Takers make friendships that will last a lifetime. Our hope is that recipients who receive Gis will use martial arts training as a form of therapy to help them cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injuries, chronic stress, and the myriad of other ailments that can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, and an ever-increasing number of suicides. With each Gi we send out, our Oath Taker martial arts community grows.
Please Join us in our efforts to get Gis 4 GIs stocked up with the inventory they need to fulfill their mission. The Gis in our Buy One/Give One offer are top-notch and will definitely help get those men and women who have served, or currently serve, ready for the mats.
