Due to COVID-19, we have a hybrid model, with virtual yoga and counseling and in-person boxing (socially distanced with masks) for our fall 2020 cohort. There will also be opportunities for the women to engage safely throughout the semester. The inaugural 14-week program will include a cohort of 10.
Ideal candidates for Fight Club are women over the age of 18 who have endured trauma as a result of human rights violations, including but not limited to: war, persecution or discrimination of race, religion, sexual orientation and freedom of speech, violence, domestic violence, human trafficking, sexual abuse, sexual assault, rape, poverty and incarceration. We work to rebuild the relationship with the Self through mind, body and spirit.
Applicants must not currently live in an abusive home or relationship; they must not have attempted suicide in the past six months; applicants must be free of drug/substance abuse for at least six months. We request applicants who are comfortable reading, writing and speaking English, as classes and therapy will be conducted in English.
Fall 2020 Applications are closed and we are now accepting applications for spring 2021. We ask each woman to make an effort to attend each class to graduate. The spring program begins Thursday, January 28 and ends Tuesday, April 27. Program tuition is $300 or $100/month. Scholarships available.
In partnership with Oak Cliff Aikikai and Dallas Yoga Center, Fight Club is a community focused on post-trauma healing, extending beyond the classroom and into your life. These partnerships allow our members to have free access to classes while actively enrolled in Fight Club.
After graduation, members will be matched with a therapist for one-on-one counseling for four months thanks to our pro bono counselor network.
Our non-profit is also a United Way Social Innovation Accelerator fellow.
