After months of hard work and secrecy, we’re very excited to announce our latest project!
The Box Wrestle Fence Bodies calendar puts a martial arts twist on the long tradition of cheeky, nude fundraising calendars. In this year’s inaugural edition, 15 of our coaches and students box, wrestle, fence, balance, knife fight, and pose their way through a dozen high-quality (and tasteful!) images. The calendar aims to showcase the many different kinds of strength that our arts require, and how bodies of all shapes, sizes, and genders are strong, beautiful, and badass.
- $20 gets you a print calendar
- $15 gets you a high-resolution digital wallpaper set
- $30 gets you both
The calendar and wallpaper set share six of our favourite photos, and include six other images that are unique to each format. Picking up both will give you the full set of 18 images, plus the cover photo.
And did we mention this was a fundraiser? $4 from every calendar and digital package (and $8 from the combined set) goes to RainCity Housing, a local non-profit that provides long-term and transitional housing to vulnerable populations in Vancouver, including women-led families, people living with addiction and mental health challenges, and LGBT youth. All remaining profits will be used to sponsor low-income attendees for Violence Dynamics Vancouver and other self-defense programming at Valkyrie Western Martial Arts Assembly.
