Welcome New Students

I’d like to take a minute and welcome Mo Sheikh (Adults) Amed Sheikh (Adults) and Mo Jr Sheikh (Kids) to the team. These brothers have shown a lot of enthusiasm to learning and I look forward to seeing them develop in our classes.

New Blue Belt!

Once again, congratulations to Kenneth Bates on his well-deserved promotion to blue belt this week. Ken always shows good consistency in his training as well as a positive attitude towards learning. He’s come a long way and I’m happy to see him with a blue belt around his waist now.
