PINK BELT PROJECT

Empowering women in need with free martial arts

Pink Belt Project empowers women in need by gifting them with scholarships providing one year of FREE training in the traditional martial arts (Taekwondo, Karate, Jiu Jitsu) at their nearest club.

The project was started in 2018 by West Australian Black Belt mum Kristy Hitchens aka The Mortal Mouse Taekwondo Blogger and is backed by Australian Taekwondo.

Fundraising for 2021 Pink Belt Scholarships is now underway.
Scholarship applications opened for 6 weeks on Thursday, October 1, 2020 and you can read more about applying HERE>
