One of Sensei's black belts - Sensei would be very proud of this young man!


Although its been nine years since we lost Sensei Hawkes, we miss him like it was only yesterday.


Due to the declaration of a public health emergency in New Mexico and Governor Lujan Grisham's orders today, we are forced to close the doors to our facility. However, we are able to keep our Minds open, our Spirits uplifted, and our Bodies working due to the magic of technology. We will open a special Youtube Channel for our students. Please keep an eye on your E-mail for more details. Thank you for your understanding as we all work through these challenges.
