Team Texas Annual Senior Banquet

Join us for our annual banquet where we celebrate our graduating seniors as they wrap up their time on Team Texas. The evening will consist of a silent auction, dinner, speeches for the kids, awards, and speeches by the graduating seniors. The dress code is semi-formal. Please do not be late, as we have a tight agenda to stick to for the night.

 

This year, we are giving the option to make a donation to Team Texas in addition to your ticket. This allows us to keep the cost of the evening low while giving everyone an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution. We thank you for considering a donation to the team!

 

This is one of the most special nights of the year for the team, and we can't wait to see you there!

Girls Self Defense Class

This is a 2-hour self defense class for girls, taught by Diane Reeve.

The class is $15, you can SIGN UP HERE 25 spots available!

Learn about Action Defense HERE

About Diane:

Over 30 years of martial arts training, almost 25 of which as owner of my own martial arts school, I have seen countless women either begin training or refuse to train due to prior abusive relationships.

I learned that abused women sometimes have to take things in smaller steps. Also, although they may not have experienced abuse first hand, sometimes women want to feel safer and more confident "Just in case". It is for these and other women that I created Action Self Defense.

The mission of Action Self Defense is to afford girls and women an opportunity to quickly and effectively learn real world self defense techniques that will promote their confidence and empowerment.

The name itself was selected to suggest that taking ACTION to help oneself as a preventative or as a remedy is a courageous way to respond.

I believe that women are strong and powerful caretakers, but that they can always use more focus on caring for themselves. I believe that all women should have the knowledge and wherewithal to defend themselves or their loved ones, should it become necessary.
