"Tap Out: A combat sports term for yielding to the opponent, and hence resulting in an immediate defeat." Tap Cancer Out, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, empowers the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community to raise money in support of organizations that are researching, treating, and ultimately tapping cancer out, once and for all. We believe the grappling community, which not only includes grapplers but friends, fans, and supporters, is capable of making a tangible difference in this world if we unite together in this cause. The funds raised by Tap Cancer Out, both directly donated or raised through merchandise sales, are given directly to benefit foundations dedicated to fighting cancer on behalf of the BJJ community. Through 2013 we donated more than $85,000 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and in 2014 we'll be donating $97,500 in support of two fellowship grants.
