Womens Day Out 2014 - Puyallup WA.

Do you suffer from PTSD due to an assault or traumatic event? Are you tired of being hushed and medicated?  Then join  NWJJA's very own black belt Denise Holcomb this weekend, along with a cadre of women instructors from the Pacific NW as they raise awareness and money for Women's Day Out 2014, Saturday May 3rd.

Unfortunately cases of sexual assault are rising in our society, both inside and out of the military, and this event is an attempt to raise awareness to PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and MSA (military sexual assault).  Both fitness and martial art / self defense seminars will be taught along with a forum and opportunity to get support and find help if you have suffered from psychological/emotional/physical pain via assault or other traumatic event.

Click here to be re-directed to the Womens Day Out site.  Or you can contact Maria Dill 253-632-5085  Suggested donations are only $10 with the proceeds benefiting the American Lake Women's PTSD Program, and women veterans are welcome to attend free of charge.
