East Tennessee veterans find therapy in jujitsu

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A local group of veterans has found relief from PTSD through jujitsu.

The class is held in the Hardin Valley area at Shield Systems. The group allows the men to spend time with other veterans who can relate to their daily struggles.

Several of the men have sponsors to help them deal with the cost of the therapy. They meet several times per week as a group for the class, as well as other times away from the studio.
