We would like to thank our judges, Master Robert Zavalakos, Master Maria Zavalakos and Master Dr.Adler for coming! They are always proud to see to the progress of our students with each and every testing on Fridays. It is not about the journey but how you get there!

Testing Starts Today!

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

Our Last Testing of the year starts today! Our first group will be at 4:30pm and second group at 5:30pm! Masters, Instructors and Volunteers please come in 20-30 before testing starts. We also suggest out students to do the same, because of parking and also so it gives a chance for our students to review their requirements right before testing! We wish everyone the best of luck!
