Being involved in the Autism community and working with kids on the Autism Spectrum is very personal for owners Dave Nicchitta and Mike Palmer. Dave’s 9 year old son is on the Autism Spectrum and Mike’s full time job consists of working with kids and teens on the Autism Spectrum and those in the special needs community. AutismUp offers kids and their families programs that help them not only navigate through the many obstacles that Autism brings with it but programs that also allow kids to have fun. We have been very fortunate to have AutismUp endorse our Jujitsu Buddies program, which introduces kids on the Autism Spectrum to Jujitsu and martial arts and is the only one of its kind in the area, and our Core 4 Fitness program, designed for Teens on the Autism Spectrum. Their guidance and support have been amazing and now it’s our turn to help them. We would like you to consider joining our team and / or making a donation to help AutismUp continue the great work they do. Thank you.
