Help Chris Lytle Help Others

“Good morning, parents. My name is Chris, and I’ll be watching over your children.”

In between putting out fires and collecting bonus checks, fan-favorite Chris Lytle has been working with the Indianapolis Police Department to establish an MMA Training program for at-risk youth and veterans suffering from PTSD. Their “Police Athletic League” is seeking a $50,000 grant from Pepsi’s Refresh Everything project.

Programs like this give children self-esteem and support through positive mentoring and can have a huge impact on a child’s life, but more importantly they make it less likely that we’d have to suffer through piss poor YouTube scraps in the near future. Give “Lights Out” some support- you can vote for his program online or by texting 106352 to “Pepsi” (73774) daily now through the end of the month. Lytle’s PAL program is falling behind many others, including an initiative to buy a youth photography club more cameras—BORING!–so do your part and vote.

A great idea for the troops, but equipping kids who are the most likely to resort to violence with the knowledge and ability to maximize their physical tools... awesome Chris... couldn't you establish a cross-stitch training program instead?

Chris Lytle should train EVERYONE.

So we're getting a bunch of underprivileged kids to fight with veterans suffering from post traumatic stress? That could go very badly either way, depending on if the vets either go postal, or shut down into the foetal position, and if the youths are unarmed or not.

A generation of kids training MMA with Chris Lytle would be awesome. Much better than if they learned from Jon Fitch or Jake Shields.
