“Our Academy is all about Team. What team means to us is that we watch each other’s back and we take care of each other. We all strive to improve and we look after one another to make sure everyone keeps up and enjoys the training. As individual students improve, the team improves. Each training session has life lessons built in that not only do we become outstanding Martial Artists, but outstanding citizens in life. It’s more than training, it’s a lifestyle.” -Michio Grubbs
