 Social Justice through Education & the Martial Arts

We have been overwhelmed and humbled by the Kalamazoo community's support of our nonprofit and our mission.  We sincerely believe with your help the EZ Scholarship for all Edison Neighborhood youths is making a difference in the lives of at risk youths in our community.  

 In light of recent events of youth violence and issues with donations that have not come to fruition our community has increased their support for us and we truly appreciate it. 

 We will be auctioning off all Corner Bar memorabilia to pay for repairs and renovations to our youth center.  A link to the auction site will be live soon, please keep watching.

 If you are able to you can donate directly to our nonprofit via Razoo by clicking on the link below.  You will automatically receive a receipt from Razoo for your tax purposes.  Thank you so much for helping us empower youths and change lives.
