Dylan's Wings of Change

THE STORY:

~~My journey with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has changed my life in so many positive ways, mainly because of the amazing people I have met along the way. I have made lifelong friends and have been shown a way to live life with generosity and kindness. December 14th 2012, I welcomed in to this world my first child, my son Jack. On such an amazing and joyous day for my family it was shadowed by a heinous tragedy. My son Jack shares his birthday with the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown CT. With my heart filled with joy and sadness I set out to try to help in some way. I worked on a BJJ patch project that raised almost six thousand dollars which was donated to the UConn Scholarship Fund. The UConn Scholarship Fund was created to help any of the children directly affected by the Newtown shooting to help with their education at UConn. I was proud to raise that money last year, but my need to help has not faded.

This year, we are putting together a weekend charity Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Super Seminar in Manchester, CT to benefit http://dylanswingsofchange.com/ . Dylan Hockley was one of the little boys taken on that sad day and his parents set up this foundation devoted to children with autism.

I ask my jiu jitsu brothers and sisters to embraced this effort and join me for this Super Seminar on the weekend of May 16th – 18th. Black belts from across CT and more from across the country will donate their time to teach that weekend, and all the money raised is going towards Dylan’s Wings of Change. We will also have a family BBQ after the seminar on Sunday the 18th with music, raffle prizes and full of great people!

Through Dylan’s love of butterflies and the amazing people supporting this event, I am proud to announce the 1st annual “Blackbelts for Butterflies”. It is my hope that this will become an annual event that celebrates Dylan’s life and his family’s strength!
