WHO IS VITAL DEFENSE INTERNATIONAL?

We connect with underserved communities around the world by teaching essential life skills and basic human rights including self defense and nutrition education. We are bringing sustainable programs to people on the fringes, those without access to the Internet. With this added base of support, our communities will thrive.

The older generation of students learning directly from Krysti’s nutrition certification textbook. Following this lesson, they were genuinely interested to learn more about the foods they eat.

Classes are full every day which tells us that there is a legitimate desire for these classes in the communities. Everything we say and write is translated from English to Sepedi ensuring everyone has the same opportunity to learn.

These women are finding their fight stance for the first time – hands protecting their face, chin protecting their throat, balanced and strong.

MASSIVE APPRECIATION to Society Nine!!! Lynn Le graciously donated 100 hand wraps that we will give to the South African women for their self defense training. Vital Defense International joins Society Nine in standing “for the fight within EVERY woman”.

Krav Maga Seattle owners Chau and Cat with their tight knit, bad-ass community have supported us big time. Vital Defense has 110 more pairs of hand wraps, 12 tombstone pads, and 2 kick shields that we can take with us to South Africa. To think that such a small action in a local studio can make such a huge difference across the globe is mind boggling. THANK YOU Krav Maga Seattle!!!

We are moved by and forever grateful for the Krav Maga Portland community’s strong support and care!
