Ellendale Martial Arts Academy recently hosted an event on October 1st in collaboration with Sharron Brady, Director of Kedish House, Chief Brad Knutson, from the Ellendale PD, and Kim Weyer, representative of Damsels in Defense. This educational event was to kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This event raised money for the Kedish House through local sponsorships of martial arts student participating in a kick-a-thon. Sharron Brady spoke about the services the Kedish House provides to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Chief Knutson talked about laws regarding domestic abuse. Kim Weyer demonstrated some self-defense techniques before the event concluded with the kick-a-thon. As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month self-defense classes are being taught at Ellendale Martial Arts to those registered on or before October 1st, with all proceeds being donated to the Kedish House. Thank you to the sponsors and all who were involved in making this community and regional event a success are greatly appreciated.
