We at Pacific Wave Jiu-jitsu believe in giving back to the community as a dojo. Recently, in conjunction with BCIT Jiu-jitsu, we held a “Water Balloon Revenge” event to raise funds to donate to flood-ravaged community of Sicamous, BC. Every summer the Canadian Jiu-jitsu Union holds its summer camp there so a number of member dojos decided to raise funds to help the community in different ways. We decided to have a bit of fun with it and give students a chance to “take revenge” on their Senseis by buying water balloons for $5.00, which they could throw at a Sensei of their choice.
We managed to raise over $500 with all proceeds from the balloons being donated to the Eagle Valley Community Support Society, which supports Sicamous in times of need (like now). Check out the video below for a recap from the event. Or check out the photos on our Facebook page.
