Message from Grand Master James Cox

Hello, I am wishing all the best to everyone, you know with the crazy things in this world going on, from COVID and now these riots, who knows what’s next, we simply just do not know! So, instead of me giving you my opinion on things like that, let me give you 100% FACTS of what I do know for certain… everyone needs to be in martial arts training right now! NO DOUBT and for every reason, from self-protection, peace of mind, physical fitness, health, life-skills, character development, socializing, and SOOO much more. You must come to class (in person or on-line) NO EXCUSES, only results! My team and I are obsessed over our students getting progress, so let’s kick together and stick together.
