Folkestone Delivery stage

pledged of £5,567

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Driven by a passion for fostering physical and mental well-being, we aim to create a space where individuals of all ages and abilities can thrive through the practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Our mission is to empower individuals through the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, fostering a sense of community, discipline, personal growth, and top-tier training facilities. With the goal of providing a professional training environment, the gym is looking for £5000 to invest in high-quality mats for the new facility located at F51 Folkestone. “Folkestone 51 is the world’s first purpose-built multi-story skatepark. Only a 54-minute train journey from London St Pancras, it is home to the largest lead climbing wall in the South East while also featuring bouldering facilities and a boxing gym. Three floors dedicated to skateboarding, with two world-class suspended concrete bowls, F51 has turned heads both nationally and internationally."

What we'll deliver:

  • 9m x 9m Premium quality Dollamur roll out mats.
  • Move into world class facilities with showers, bathrooms, lockers, changing rooms, reception & cafe
  • An enhanced training experience setting the gym apart from potential competitors and an improved class schedule.

Why it's a great idea:

Folkestone Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not merely a gym; it's a transformative force designed to enrich the fabric of the local community. By strategically positioning itself in F51 Folkestone, FBJJ aims to bring elite BJJ training to the heart of the town, catering to diverse sections of the community. This initiative is not just a business move; it's a response to a need within the community and a commitment to creating a healthier, more connected Folkestone. The collaboration with F51 opens avenues for joint promotions and events, benefiting both FBJJ and F51. This collaboration not only fosters economic growth but also enhances the overall appeal of the area, attracting individuals seeking a diverse range of activities. FBJJ's core mission revolves around empowering individuals of all ages and abilities through the practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The gym fosters a sense of belonging, building a tight-knit community that transcends age, gender, and background.

Steps to get it done:

  • 100 members
  • Womens empowerment course

Folkestone Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu serves as a beacon of positive change within the community. By understanding the unique benefits it brings, ranging from physical and mental well-being for everyone to nuanced advantages for specific groups, FBJJ becomes a catalyst for community engagement, personal growth, and economic vitality. The gym's strategic positioning, commitment to inclusivity, and collaborative efforts contribute to making Folkestone a more vibrant and connected town. As FBJJ evolves, it stands poised to address specific challenges within the community and become an integral part of Folkestone's collective well-being.
