Vernon women’s self defence course boosts transition house coffers

Green Dragon Kung Fu, Ladies World raise $1,000 for the Vernon Women’s Transition House

Green Dragon Kung Fu Vernon and Ladies World Health and Fitness teamed up and presented a Women’s Self Defence Class in February.

The event was well attended and received great reviews said Jerry Pyrzoko, a local chiropractor and head instructor of Green Dragon Kung Fu in Vernon. The event brought in $1,000, which was donated to the Vernon Women’s Transition House Society, a non-profit organization that provides shelter and services to women seeking safety from abuse in their relationship and survivors of sexual assault.
