What is a Community?

First and foremost, community is not a place, a building, or an organization; nor is it an exchange of information over the Internet. Community is both a feeling and a set of relationships among people. People form and maintain communities to meet common needs.

Members of a community have a sense of trust, belonging, safety, and caring for each other. They have an individual and collective sense that they can, as part of that community, influence their environments and each other.

At Legacy517, we strive to create an environment where trust, belonging, safety, and caring can flourish in everything that we do. The following are organizations that help us create this environment and reach out to as much of the community as possible.

Adopt a Cop BJJ

Legacy517 is a proud affiliated academy for the Adopt a Cop BJJ program. We feel this program helps us do our part in assisting the brave officer’s in our community, that keep us safe day in and day out, get back home safely to their loved ones.

“Adopt a Cop BJJ is a nonprofit, donation based program that allows active duty patrolling police officer’s around the country to train at any Adopt a Cop BJJ affiliated academy and we will pay 100% of the officer’s membership until they reach the rank of Blue belt. Blue belt is the second ranked belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and on average it takes around 12 to 18 months to obtain.

Most individuals with a blue belt level of knowledge have an immense advantage in controlling a combative situation over someone who has no knowledge or experience in grappling regardless of size, strength or even gender to an extent.

Being a police officer is one of the most selfless, dangerous and important jobs in the world today. Many people have called to defund the police but we believe that is not the best solution being that law and order is absolutely necessary in order to have a safe and functional society. We believe more and better training is the solution to creating a resilient and more effective police force.”

Family Night

At least once a month we come together as a community to hang out and enjoy a potluck, trivia night, game night, etc. We look to change up the theme of the family night each time we get together! Look for updates on our social media or come in and ask one of our coach’s for more information. Look forward to seeing you soon!
