  • Riot’s Story

She's now competing and enjoys helping new kids in class....

  • Tommy’s Story

    I really appreciate everything the gym has been so far. Even if I haven't completely turned my life around yet, I believe I can say my interest in martial arts has been the main difference between me and the many kids who get stuck in small towns with no opportunity. After the loss of close family, dropping out of school, Continue Reading...
