About Him

Tomas “Papo” Soñe is a man on a mission – to mentor youth in his country. As a native Papo draws on his perspective as a Dominican and for nearly 20 years he’s been teaching and mentoring young people. When we opened the boys club in 2015, he quickly became one of our biggest allies. Whether its coaching our members to develop their skills in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, self-dicipline, or healthy living habits, he’s been a positive influence and helped guide dozens of our boys towards becoming responsible young men. Papo is the founder and lead instructor of Jiu Jitsu de la Costa in Cabarete.
