Projabi Facts

  • Projabi Was Created By Gary Engels, A Martial Arts Instructor and Martial Arts School Owner In Woodruff, WI.
  • The ‘Project Based Leadership Training’ Idea Was Created Through The Ultimate Black Belt Test By Team Coach and 6th Dan Master Instructor Tom Callos.
  • The Philosophy and Concepts Of PROJABI Follow Closely With The Ideas and Training Provided By The100 – A Martial Arts Association.

  • Our Program Is Also Designed To Be A Ready Made System For Adults To Dive In and Become Role Models and Active, Participative Citizens In Their Communities While Helping Their Families Grow Together.
  • Projabi Is Based Off The Mental and Spiritual Knowledge and Training From Various Martial Arts Styles. The Ideas Of Action, Discipline, Perseverance, Service, Awareness, Courage, Honor, Trust, Integrity, and Vision Are Just As Apparent In Projabi’s Leadership Training Program As They Are In The Dojo (Martial Arts Training Facility)
  • The Mission Of Projabi Is To Assist Students (Children and Adults, Martial Artists and Non-Martial Artists) In Taking The Lessons Of Leadership Found On This Site and Apply Them, Through Real Action, Out In Their Communities To Learn, Through Experience, What Leadership Is Truly About.
