A weekly class for girls has been available since October. Because some of the girls have experienced trauma and assault in the past, the teacher has included self-defense training to help boost their self-confidence.
The martial arts program has existed for several years at Portage Cassidy Lake, in New-Brunswick. It gives residents the opportunity to apply the teamwork skills acquired at Portage while getting some exercise at the same time.
Portage thanks TELUS for helping to make this program possible at Portage Saint-Malachie.
