Community Outreach Programs

Being supportive of the community and the people within it, is a main focus at Lock Down Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We do lots of work within the Sachem Schools and Ronkonkoma, NY area to support the community and some of its events and organizations. Some of the organizations we are actively a part of are the following:

Mission 22 -

Lock Down Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu BJJ is the Long Island ambassador to Mission 22 - Every day in America we lose over 20 veterans to suicide.

Our mission is to end the stigma surrounding PTS and Traumatic Brain Injury and get our veterans the treatment options they want and deserve. Mission 22 has three major programs:
1. Funding treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues veterans face
2. Creating large-scale public memorials to honor veterans
3. Bringing awareness to the issues veterans are facing today
