Project LIFE partnered with the MMA Institute in Richmond to offer a self defense lesson to youth. Let me tell you, that was more than a typical lesson in which an instructor say “If your attacker grabs you from behind…” The instructor Chelsea showed the youth some real UFC fight moves! All attendees learned the typical maneuvers that would be super useful for a domestic violence situation, to include punching, kicking, throwing knees, and even some on the ground wrestling. There was so much comradery, that it was really fun practicing with each other, even though PL’s consultant Olivia, says that they were sweaty messes by the end of the class. Some of the young ladies were really good! Take my advice you do not want to try to take advantage of them! Some photos are included below, with permission from the photographed subjects.
