Hey La Quinta Dwellers!
My name is Christopher Hargett, Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu brown belt. I have been training Jiu Jitsu for almost 10 years and have finally reached a point in my career where I can be a professional athlete and focus %100 on my career.
My goal for this year is to participate in the WORLD SERIES OF GRAPPLING, a premier event that will start in Los Angeles and go all the way to Miami, finally ending in Las Vegas. This event has two categories 180+ lbs and 180- lbs (my division) and will feature the best Brown/Black belts and Blue/Purple belts from all over the world. I am currently raising money for registration and travel fees for all 5 events (LA, DAL, CHI, MIA, NY) for a chance to compete in the finals in Las Vegas.
If you are interested in supporting a local athlete/coach CALL (760) 625-1238 or Email us at Info@rjjlaquinta.com to find out how you can contribute. A chance to compete in an event of this stature will bring a great deal of attention to the school, serving many youths in the Coachella Valley. I see the importance of giving back after all Jiu Jitsu has done for me by instilling values such as discipline and respect. As a young teen who had an easy time getting into trouble I see the value of having something like Martial Arts in your life to keep you on track for success. Having a successful program that can reach troubled youths and give them a way to channel their energy in a positive way would be very rewarding to me. With this campaign to raise funds for myself as an athlete I hope to motivate and inspire my students as well as lead by example, showing that if you do good things, set goals and give 100% effort, anything is possible.
