Empowered in partnership with Cobourg Tae Kwon Do and the 2022 Black Belt Candidates/Mentors are teaming up to help raise funds for Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre of Northumberland County. Each year the Black Belt Candidates help raise funds for various charities and causes. 

This year we have chosen to help Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre. Established in 1983, Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre (Cornerstone) is an accredited violence against women agency working to break the cycle of family violence by providing accessible, compassionate, and best practice modeled programs and services inclusive of shelter, counselling, housing support, and prevention.

"World Champion, Master Jonathan Field is an awesome martial artist and teacher who empowers women through defense and empowerment training."

Emma Root

"Master Jonathan shares his knowledge of practical self-defense tactics in an engaging and meaningful way by using real-life scenarios with the assistance of an extraordinary female black belt, Instructor Cheryl Sanders, for demonstrations. Their workshops allow women the opportunities to learn and practice easy to remember self-defense tactics in a safe, easy to follow manner. I learned some valuable skills that I believe every girl and woman should know."
