Katherine Shai (Fulp-Allen) has recently featured VDI in her blog, “How Two Women are Teaching South Africans to Fight for their Lives“.
She is an incredibly accomplished wrestler and teacher – a 5x National Team Member, 2x Olympic Team Alternate, University World Champion for Team USA in wrestling, 2x Olympic Training Center Resident Athlete, and now coaches and mentors young girls as a part of the non-profit, Wrestle Like A Girl. The community she created, LuchaFIT, has a wealth of insight for female athletes all over the world.
Jazzy is quoted in the article:
It is important to disrupt the status quo when it takes away these rights for any sect of a community. These wrongdoings must not be ignored for the future health of communities around the world. That is why we are working with women who have found themselves stuck in a cycle of rape with no way to see beyond their current situation. Without changing their overall culture, we can accomplish immediate safety.
We are honored by this spotlight!
