Guardian Gym - Buy One, Give One #2



Part of our mission at É Nóis Clothing is to make sure Jiu Jitsu is available for everyone, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation and/or social economic status. That's a big mission, but by teaming up with other organizations with similar goals we know we can make a real difference.

Coinciding with everything we stand for are our Buy One, Give One campaigns, during which for every gi sold, we donate a gi or rashguard to the campaign's respective children.


Our second nonprofit partner was the Guardian Gym, a martial arts gym based out of downtown Oakland, California. Founded in 2015, the Guardian Gym is a non-profit organization that now proudly boasts 300 students, with their youth program being completely free-of-charge. Not only that, but in 2016, the Guardian Gym started their own scholarship, giving youth from the ages 9-18, who have the desire to train Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, or Kickboxing- without financial means to do so- the ability to train locally for free. Their mission is to instill in their students the self-esteem, confidence, and discipline that can be uncovered through the practice of martial arts. With your help, we have been able to provide the Guardian Gym with the over 100 gis!
