Gianmarco is leaving for Orlando!

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

One of our 2nd Dan Black Belts is leaving to go into UCF in Orlando. Gianmarco and his family are moving and their last day with us was today! We had a party after the 7:30pm class with pizza and wished him the best of luck. Him, and his two sisters started with us over six years ago. His two sisters (Cassandra and Giuliana) went on to pursue their interest in soccer, but he continued to train and reach the rank he is today. Not only is a dedicated student who comes everyday, but also comes in to help the 5:30pm and 6:30pm class when he has a chance. According to his parents him and his sisters have improved their focus, discipline and attitude at home and school. Their family was very happy with us and says it will be hard to find a martial art school in Orlando with the same family values. They will be coming back to visit during our Annual Holiday Party! We wish the Alegre Family the best wishes and blessings for the future and will miss them very much!

Book Recommendation By Master Kathleen – “Zen in the Martial Arts”

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

If you’re looking for an interesting martial arts book, I’m officially (unofficially) recommending “Zen in the Martial Arts” by Joe Hyams. It’s short and simple, but an interesting read. The author also studied with Bruce Lee. Find it, read it, discuss the ideas. Good luck on testing this week!
