Some of our club members had the privilege of taking self defense classes! In 2017 & 2018 the Velo Vixens received grant money from volunteering with the Ironman 70.3 World’s Championship and Ironman 70.3 in Chattanooga. We worked together to come up with an idea for the grant, and decided upon self defense. So many of our members are out training all the time and they may or may not know how to defend themselves. So we teamed up with DOJO Chattanooga to increase self defense skills. What’s even more special is that it was geared specifically towards women. Huge thanks to Susanna Kirby for setting this up from start to finish. She volunteered as team captain, wrote the grant proposals, and set everything up Dojo.
