Fight For Something clothing gives back to the community, donates $2.50 from each sale to charity.



Fight For Something is a company formed by Dave Korzinski roughly one year ago. The company has a couple of foundational beliefs. First is that we can all Fight For Something. Everyone has the capacity to help make this world better, we just need to find our Fight. We felt that we could combine a passion for Martial Arts with some great causes that we want to raise money for and awareness about. We came up with a few designs and paired up with some great fighters like Ultimate Fighter competitors Louis Fisette, Mike Hill, Sarah Cheesecake Moras, and a Canadian amateur boxing champ out of BC, Lev Jackson. Lev has a great story, as he’s battled Crohn’s disease and was never supposed to be at this high a level. His commitment is incredible, and we hooked up with him to raise money for the Crohn’s and Colitis Canada foundation in September of last year. We rotate through new causes for some months, having raised money for former UFC fighter Justin Wren’s organization working in the DR of Congo, the Children’s Hospital in BC, and an organization Carlos Condit supports called CLN Kids.

We like to tell stories of why people fight, who they fight for. We do this through our fighter profile section of our blog at www.fightforsomething.ca.  We think that this has the ability to inspire others to do the same and to look around at who they can help in their life. This globe is so connected yet so many are still in dire need of support. Our twitter feed is by design, a mix of fight news, fighter stories, and political/social issues. We believe that these things are all inseparable.

The genesis of the idea was when I (Dave) was teaching jiu-jitsu in Guatemala in 2009. I spoke very basic Spanish but had such a great time with the kids working through techniques, and watching class grow as kids got more comfortable asking to join. It was a great experience and I saw how Martial Arts can connect people, regardless of language.

We always donate $2.50 from each sale to a cause of that month, and we track this at our website on the Donation Tracker page. This was our message spreads through our clothing, and we are able to do our small part to help fighters and causes.
