About This Cause

UPDATE: 5/31/2014

We've reached our goal. The mats have been ordered and are on their way to Washington DC. We expect them to arrive by 6/13.

Thank you to all of our contributors who made this vision a reality.

We'll be putting the mats to use right away. We are hosting events on 6/14 and 6/15 as well as later in the year. You can find out about the events at DCJudo.com

It's not too late to contribute. We'll leave this page available until July 1st 2014 for last minute contributions. These will go to storing and maintaining the mats in the future.

======================================================


We go to the mat for Judo. Will you?

We are DC Judo. We do Judo in downtown DC. We host events like the Capital Grapple Women's Judo and Jujitsu Competition on June 15th as well as a full calendar workshops on Judo, BJJ, and healthy movement.

We need quality competition mats on which to host these events. The GoToTheMat campaign is raising money for a large competition/seminar mat space. We need your help.

We run small specialized events. We do it on a shoestring and we don't even charge for our weekly classes. We don't have a capital budget, heck we barely have a budget at all. But we do what we love, work to share it with as many others as possible, and repeat it week after week event after event. We've seen Judo change lives. We want more of it.

We have talented, organized, enthusiastic people who want to help other explore Judo, Jujitsu and healthy movement. The mats we need have to be easy to move, easy to store, easy to clean, and easy to set up. Dollamur/Swain 2" Flexi-Connect Mats to be precise. Enough for two Judo competition areas or 6 BJJ competition areas.

Right now renting mats costs $900 per event. Saving that money makes the difference between having these events and having to cancel them.


You probably didn't find this site by accident or because of random google search. Someone you know or love sent you here because they believe you are the kind of person who understands "pay it forward." You might not even live in the DC metro area. But you got here because you care about Judo, Jujitsu, learning to live and move better or perhaps just because of one special person who invited you.


Whether you can add $10 or $10,000, your act advances Judo education. That means something. Kano Shihan said:

“Nothing is more important that education. The teaching of one virtuous person can influence many. That which has been learned well by one generation will be passed on to a hundred.”

Please donate now and help us take this big step forward.
