Josh Samman was a talented artistin many aspects of life as well as a huge advocate for the sport of mixed martial arts. In addition to starting an MMA promotion that toured the state of Florida giving young athletes a chance to compete; he spent countless hours doing interviews and writing articles to bring more attention to the sport that changed his life.

For Josh, it was about more than helping the sport of MMA grow, it was about helping people in need. Through his promotion he teamed up with multiple local charities, ranging from pediatric cancer to military veteran programs. 

It is in this spirit that we have decided to start a non-profit to help young athletes get a chance to have those same life changing experiences. We hope to help cover training expenses, travel expenses, and proper education on being a professional in the sport. Our goal is to one day have a sponsored athlete pass on the good deed to others in need. 

We will be looking to team up with multiple companies and organizations to help along the way.  If you are interested in more information, feel free to contact us.  Thanks in advance for all the love and support you have all given the friends and family of Josh Samman.
