What REALLY determines what we are is…

I remember hearing an idea once and it totally changed my life.  It was so simple and it offered me infinite hope.

Want to know what you’re truly capable of?


This upcoming weekend is a big weekend for some of our Red and Black Belts as they test for their next rank.

It’s a three day test that’s incredibly challenging that’s meant to test their physical limits and their martial arts skills, but also to force them beyond what they believe their capable of and to discover new levels of themselves.
