Santa's Knights, Inc.
Founded in 2015 by Damion DiGrazia, Santa's Knights is a service-disabled military veteran founded non-profit, 501(c)(3) that is tax-exempt federally and in the State of New York. Damion was inspired to create Santa's Knights by his own experience as an impoverished child that received a very thoughtful gift from Operation Santa Claus (through the U.S. Post Office) and also how when he received a career-altering injury in the line-of -duty in the military, from which he eventually recovered years later through the pursuit of martial arts, endurance training, and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). After a career on Wall Street, and a bachelor's and master's at Ivy League universities, and also teaching martial arts for 5+ years on the side, Damion realized his passion was to create a free platform/program for people to be able to pursue their best-selves through martial arts and fitness. Combining all of these factors was how Santa's Knights was born and continues to thrive and grow every day! We welcome you in any way that you would like to be involved!
Empowerment; best-self; uplifting; you; community+
Santa's Knights' mission is bringing 100% free martial arts and fitness to everyone, across NYC, and eventually across the U.S., and hopefully the world. Please help us in our mission, as we'll need all the help we can get every step of the way! One of the surest ways to a happy life is to have a healthy and fit one. There is no reason why we can't uplift everyone to reach their best potential and healthiest self with our free programs, that don't lose any quality just because they're free! We aim for the classes to be just as good as the high-cost classes you could find elsewhere! But we need volunteers, instructors, students, and resources in every form possible to make this happen! Please get involved in the best way that you are able! We can surely use your help! Thank you!
