    Last full week of January! What a great start to 2023. We have some big things coming up next month, too. February 3rd will be the first belt test for children and teens this year. Then on February 4th, we will have a children’s black belt test! It’s rare we have a group ready to go and I can’t think of a better way to start the year than that! Some adults are getting ready for the first competition of the New Year too. So many fantastic things! Keep training, get ready and we’ll keep everything moving forward. Onward and upward!

    Halfway through the first month of 2023 and everyone is looking fantastic! The first belt test for teens and children will be on Friday, Feb. 3. It’s hard to make this test since it arrives so quickly, work hard and see what you can accomplish. If you aren’t ready, then no problem, you’ll be way ahead for the next one! Win-Win!

    Some adults are getting ready for competitions starting up this year. The entire class is ramping up to meet the challenge. You never have to compete if you’re at Lion’s Way, but that doesn’t mean you can’t train like a champion! Let’s get to work.

    MLKMonday: Martin Luther King Jr. Day

    We spend the day honoring and taking to heart the messages of a man who has become a legend. Let us spend each day striving to make his dream come true.

    We are OPEN today. Working hard is the best honor we as martial artists can give.
