Tomorrow we celebrate the 37th birthday of our namesake, BJ Penn!
This morning The Penn Hawaii Youth Foundation had a surprise for BJ, which you can see above.
The Penn Hawaii Youth Foundation was established back in 2004, and aims to “encourage positive values in Hawaii’s youth through the martial arts way … and foster the Hawaiian values of kindness, humility, respect, ‘Ohana, teamwork and patience.” The goal, is “to show youth that true strength comes through the mind, not the fist.”
We here at BJPenn.com would like to wish our namesake ‘The Prodigy’ a happy birthday, and thank him for all he has done in not only the Mixed Martial Arts and Jiu-Jitsu communities, but the Hawaiian community as well!
