Congratulations To Our Adults!

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Congratulations to our Adults who tested today! They did an excellent job! Special congratulations to our two Instructors who tested: Mr.Franck Chantayan and Mr.John Kirby. Not only did they hold their own but they have been helping with the students of the 5:30pm and 6:30pm class prepare for theirs. Also congratulations to Frederick and Francis Alo for their testing with their power break, one step sparring, and weapons! They had incredible yelling! Sebastian Kirby, our Deputy 4th Dan, also tested today and did a great job on his techniques with the many requirements that he had. Congratulations to Silke Dunn, for her dedication which showed during her testing.

We would like to thank our Instructors Mr.Charles Worsham, Mr.Franck Chantayan, and Mr.John Kirby for their continued support and dedication! We thank our Masters Maria and Robert Zavalakos for always participating in judging even with their busy schedules.

Belt Presentation will be starting Monday, June 27th during normal classes. If our students do not receive a call during the weekend, then they have passed their testing.

We hope you have a great weekend! See you next week!

Best of luck to all of you!


Congratulations to Everyone! Thank you!

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Congratulations to all the students who tested today! A special congratulations to Elizabeth (Deputy to 1st Dan), Zachary (Deputy to 1st Dan) and Evan Priest (1st Dan 1st Gup to 2nd Gup). They did an excellent job along with everyone else. Even our new white belt Dillon, our first-time testing student, did amazing! Our Grandmaster, Masters, and Instructors are very proud of them!

There were many students with different requirements depending what class they were in. The most fascinating part was when students who were not required weapons or forms, wanted to test for it anyway as a bonus. They really surprised our Grandmaster with their confidence!

Let’s not forget these students would not be where they are without the help of those who supported them everyday in class. We speak of our Instructors Mr.Franck Chantayan, Mr. John Kirby, Mr. Charles Worsham, James Lilly, Benjamin Beinhorn, and Sebastian Kirby. Even with their busy schedules, they came voluntarily to help out with classes alongside our Master Maria Zavalakos. We thank you for all of your hard work.

We thank our Masters Maria and Robert Zavalakos for always coming in to help with the classes and judging for testing. Our students appreciate the time spent for them.

Special thank you to all the parents and relatives who wait for their children everyday outside or as class is ending. Your continued boost, will make our students really appreciate the futures they are striving to have down the line! We deeply thank you for your continued support of your families and USMA!

Belt presentation starts Monday during classes. We will see you then! Now we prepare for the adult testing tomorrow and wish our remaining participants the best of luck!
