Just warming up before class!

Congratulations to Kyler Burkman , who was voted student of the month, for his performance at Steel Mo Battle of the Bootheel. Kyler placed 1st in fighting , 1st in kata and 1st in grappling. Good job Kyler!

Congratulations to Eythan Burkman for his performance at the Battle of the Bootheel in Steele Mo. He won 1st in fighting and 2nd in kata in his division. Then 2nd in men's heavyweight grappling. Then stepped up to enter the junior black belt division sparring and placed 3rd. Then he entered men's black belt division and finished strong with 3rd in kata and 2nd in fighting. Stepping up a division can be nerve wracking. Stepping into black belt can be terrifying . But he held his own. Excellent job Mr. Burkman.

Congratulations to Damion Crader on his performance at the Battle in the Bootheel! Damion placed 1st in fighting and 3rd in kata! Good job Damion! Were proud of you!

Congratulations to Hayden Blankenship on his performance at the Battle in the Bootheel this weekend. Hayden traveled to Steele Mo for his second competition and placed 1st In grappling and 1st in fighting. Good job Hayden!

Congratulations to Kaden Donner on an outstanding performance at his first competition. Kaden competed at the Battle in the Bootheel tournament in Steele last weekend and placed 2nd in grappling, 4th in karate flags, 2nd in fighting and 1st in kata! Well done!

Rylee finishes strong with a clean sweep. First in all. 1st place flags, 1st place grappling, 1st place forms , 1st place weapons, 1st place fighting. Very proud coach.

Everybody wish these warriors luck today as they battle for a national championship. The year is winding down and both are at the top of several divisions...2 more tournaments after today and who knows they have a good chance to be national champion, maybe even triple crown winners. So far Rylee won 1st in flags, 1st in grappling. Jack won 2nd in flags, 1st in grappling.
