DSK Martial Arts students from two school locations (Marshall Road and McArthur Drive) went and competed today successfully at the Battle Under the Bridge! Congratulations!
Emmett getting ready for forms – 2nd out of 12. Emmett competed up a level today for the first time in the intermediate division. Good job!
Deboarah came to play today (don’t let the chilled pose foul you). She placed 1st in Sparring and 2nd in Forms. Moreover, Deborah went up an age bracket to the 15-16 year old bracket! Way to represent your school!
Abby competed up a level today for the first time in intermediate and did very well. In the picture above she fought for first, but came in second in a close one. She also placed 2nd in Extreme Weapons. Way to go Abby!
Additionally, our school had several other competitors do very well at the event winning 2nd through 4th place. We are proud of everyone. Now, let’s get ready for Mr. Joey Perry’s Arkansas Open on April 28th in Jonesboro!
I want to thank our students for teaming up with Hope Lutheran Church’s Food Pantry helping to feed the needy in Jacksonville, Arkansas. You guys are awesome. We will start taking food donations on a quarterly basis for those that continue to want to help out. Next quarter, I know we can do better!!! Thanks to all who donated!
Arkansas State Champion Abigail Yowell put on a dominant performance on February 17, 2018 at Joey Perry’s Memphis Open. Abby won first in three divisions, second and three third place awards! Way to go Abby. This was Abby’s last time competing as a beginner. On March 17, 2018 she will be competing for the first time as an Intermediate belt at Master Brewer’s Battle Under the Bridge.
On February 10th, 2018 the ASKC crowned its State Champions! DSK Martial Arts students were there to represent us and the state of Arkansas. We are very proud of our students and in particular these young champs!! Way to go!
Good Job! Mattie, Samantha and Mikaela were awarded their philosophy stripe, while Emmett earned his Forms Stripe. Additionally, we had Kayley, Kinsley, Cheyanne and Aiden get their Philosophy/Knowledge stripe at white belt level. So Proud!!! Way to Go!!
No Scheduled Class in recognition of Independence Day! Now, this doesn’t mean you can’t practice. We strongly encourage you to practice. In fact, while others are swimming, running, jumping, eating and watching Fireworks it would be extremely hard core of you to do forms, kicking drills and cardio exercises instead!!! If you do so, let me know…and I will tell you how hard core you are!!!
Personally, I will be with the guys swimming, running, jumping…well….if not with those guys with the ones eating and watching fireworks for sure!!!
