The Shade Tree provides safe shelter to homeless and abused women and children in crisis and to offer life-changing services promoting stability, dignity, and self-reliance.
This past weekend The Pit Vegas’ instructor Kelly Meyers led a class to teach basic self defense skills to women and children.
The goal of this class was not just to teach life saving skills (that the participants would hopefully never have to use) but to empower and build self confidence. It doesn’t matter if you’re training for a professional fight, struggling to find a job, or just getting through a tough day; it’s your personal fortitude which will help you persevere. Hopefully The Pit Vegas helped each participant find a little bit of that.
Thanks again to Kelly Meyers, Julianna, and Cara for donating your time and setting up a great event for a great cause.
