About Martial Arts for Justice

The mission of Martial Arts for Justice is to protect vulnerable people from violence and oppression through the platform of martial arts.

Martial Arts for Justice is a Registered Canadian Charity founded by Master Dean Siminoff, a martial artist and school owner, who decided to take his student oath “ To be champions of freedom and justice” from words to actions.

Started in 2015, Martial Arts for Justice (MAJ) is designed to be an alliance of martial artists and school owners who choose to actively pursue justice, locally and globally.

The primary goal of MAJ is to mobilize martial artists and school owners on a global level to fight for victims of violence and against slavery and human trafficking.

In many countries around the world, injustice is the underlying problem that keeps people in poverty and oppression, including an estimated 36 million people who live in slavery. As a united group, we have the capacity to create positive change in our world on a profound level.

Please consider joining us full time or just annually with our national Breaking Boards Breaking Chains campaign and Master Dean would love to hear from you!
