Kids & Cops Martial Arts

Of all the things we do at the Promising Futures Fund, this just might be a favorite.

In partnership with the Sioux Falls Police Department and the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office, we’ve created a positive interaction with law enforcement for Whittier Middle School students.

Whittier Middle School Students & Law Enforcement Train Together

Twenty Whittier kids along with 10 members of law enforcement are doing Martial Arts training together for six months. Mondays they train in boxing and Wednesdays they train in Jiu Jitsu.

Thank you, Bruce Hoyer at Next Edge Academy for the training opportunity and Matt & Karine Paulson for a generous $15,000 donation to provide this training for free.
