“We have many outstanding members of society in our martial arts program. I am very proud of Ryan Harden and Patrick Scofield for their dedication in martial arts and both were promoted to 2nd degree black belt after several days of tests. Our students include several doctors, nurses, nutrition professionals, technicians, engineers, scientists, IT technicians, clergy, pilots, social scientists, laborers, university professors, teachers, musicians, students, house wives and senior citizens who become members of our martial arts family”.
