Crystal strives to work within our community and ensure martial arts and self defense is accessible for all – from working with residents in long term care homes to feel safe(wheelchair self defense), teaching martial arts to students in their elementary & high school PE classes to currently partnering with the University of Saskatchewan to provide self defense to women on campus.
Crystal plans on starting a non profit organization to aid victims of assault to find their power again with trauma therapy and jiu jitsu.
