MARCH 31, 2018 - Thoughts from Sensei Lee

As a martial arts school owner, a Sensei(teacher) and an MMA coach, I have to say that I am loving what I am seeing from everyone at my school; from the awesome karate students and their families to our awesome Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) and MMA fighters and coaches. The energy at the school is at an all-time high and we are building all the programs we offer!! This is going to be our biggest year yet, in both karate and BJJ/MMA, not that the previous 6 years haven't been great, because they have been... Very proud of our school family!!
