Kids Promotions and Christmas Break

This was our first semester with the kids and WOW - what an amazing time for both the students and the instructors.  While we had a great framework on how to run the classes due to our friends at Genesis Martial Arts in BC, it was a learning experience that will aid in continuing to improve our kids program.

We feel extremely fortunate and lucky to be learning with such a great group of kids and will miss them over the christmas break.  See you all in the new year!
