Please join us for a seminar to remember Leigh Gaston, cousin of our purple belt and female leader Lauren Chiuminatto, and a new BJJ sister who was taken from us far too soon. This seminar will be hosted by Professor Fabiana and Coach Lauren, and is intended to honor Leigh’s memory, promote awareness of the dangers of domestic violence, and raise funds to help cover memorial costs for Leigh’s family.

Leigh had just found her way to the mats recently, and while she only had a few classes under her belt, she had been a fighter all her life, having overcome health issues including cancer as well as having lost over 175 pounds in just over a year as she approached her weight loss and fitness goal. Leigh touched many lives around the world and radiated love and compassion. If you met her, you know the light she brought to the world.

Please come join our Gracie Barra family to honor Leigh’s memory. She lost her life through a tragic domestic violence incident. As such we want to encourage awareness and share practical self-defense and BJJ knowledge to help prevent such atrocities for others.

We will be hosting a $20 donation based seminar and fundraiser for Leigh's family on Saturday, August 12th at 9am. You may also donate towards Leigh’s Gofundme page if you are unable to attend and want to help. Thank you for your support! Love and chokes!
