Project "Thank You"
Vector has been overwhelmed with the generous gifts and donations, fund drives, time donated, and the overall support that the BJJ community both locally and nationally have shown to Vector in support of our mission and commitment to our Vector youths & young adults.
In honor of that we have here, for your viewing enjoyment, a gallery of photos of what your donations do for us and mean ongoing, to our Vector BJJ family.
From our hearts and all of us at Vector, we cannot say thank you enough or convey into words the life changes that your donations in a myriad of ways, including hours of assistance in training, your fund drives, the donated gear, and the equipment have all done to send the message to these youths, that they matter.
That their futures are important for them as well as for the next generation of those to come up behind them.
To say to them by word and deed that you dont have to know someone to effect their lives in a positive way. That when you give just a small piece of yourself to others, for positive change you change a life, a commmunity and the future prospects of everyone you touch.
From all of us here at Vector Jiu Jitsu in Jackson, Mississippi. You ARE appreciated! " Thank You! "

Jamal MRswaggtastik Moore — 5 stars - This organization was started with no more than love and the fact that the Thrasher family is totally dedicated to kids in our community. That dedication is now a moving force in our lives. Ever since I joined the Vector Family my life has changed for the better. Thank you Mr. And Mrs. Thrasher For saving me from becoming what I feared most.
Eric Spellman — 5 stars - A top notch program for our youth in the inner cities. Promotes overall well being both mentally and spiritually.
Christine Barringer Eaves — 5 stars - Great people, great program. Passionate about teaching and empowering our youth.
This wonderful man, Eric Spellman, has opened his gym and taught free classes to our Vector kids. He is a long time US soldier, dedicated family-man & wants to fulfill a dream. Beth
For us, please help him do that. He's a great guy & special to us! Go HERE to help out if you can. 50 people X $20 gets him to his dream! Forgo one trip to a fast food joint & hook up a brother

Darron Reese - It truly touches my heart to see what you all at Vector Jiu Jitsu are doing for the youth in your community. I wish Vector BJJ continued success and growth.

Today, July 17, 2015 Joe Langlais sent us a life preserver and shot of super human strength!
For those that don't know, Joe is an Army ROTC buddy of mine from college, who served combat tours overseas, is a model police officer in Colorado & I haven't seen him in person in over ten years.
He toiled over this BEAUTIFUL piece, to the right,for almost 60 total hours...all just to let our kids know "I see you."
You saw our hearts brother, and showed us yours right back! Mary Murphy, you're one lucky lady.
God finds a way.
