Testimonials from the new students

Rhett, 4th grade

What are your hobbies? Soccer, hockey and practicing tricks with my bo (4′ stick)

Why did you start doing karate and kobudo? One of the reasons I started kobudo is because they used the stick (bo) and I wanted to learn about that and I thought karate was interesting also!

 

Noah, 7th grade

What are your hobbies? I like doodling, drawing and gaming – that’s definitely a big. I like flying a lot of RC helicopters and I am planning to take flight school soon.

Why did you start doing karate and kobudo? I get bullied a lot at school and I know in later years, that will eventually turn violent and I want to know how to handle myself in those situations.
