Our goal at MAYi is
“To provide those youth of lesser economic circumstances the opportunity to engage in the extensive benefits that the martial arts have to offer”.
We are focusing on youth from 4 to young adult to participate in this training through the enrichment of a multi-cultural environment where differences are not negative. Self-esteem, respect, focus, determination, self-discipline and self-control are just a few of the proven attributes these children have to gain. For the teens it will help provide direction and motivation in a peer supported setting as an alternative to drugs, gangs and the streets. Funding will come through private donors, the business community, state and local grants, as well as several planned fundraising events governed by the board of directors.
