Karate is more than just kicking and punching, it can be a way of life. Our family has been training together for 11 years, and we have all grown so much. We like to think that karate is the reason we all are so close today. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we have been thinking about things we are thankful for. Our family is thankful for the common ground that karate has given us. We are thankful for the part we play in all our students' lives in teaching them something that has touched us so much. Martial artists come from all walks of life. We have police officers, nurses, firemen, engineers, military, teachers, and the list could go on! We love that karate can be a hobby, lifestyle, or activity that can bring everyone together.

My mom is the best because she is the strongest person I know. She raised my two brothers and I alone after our dad lost his battle with cancer. She took care of us, went to school and worked. We didn’t have much, but we had everything we needed. We might not have had the newest toys and trendiest clothes but we had toys and clothes. I don’t know how much she sacrificed to get me soccer cleats or football cleats for the boys, but she always made sure we had everything we needed. She was at EVERY game, play and event that we had no matter what. We always knew she was there supporting us.
