I can’t even begin to describe how grateful I am for all the opportunities and connections that have come our way as the Jan-June season comes to a close.
I am truly inspired and amazed at all the stories of our martial arts community not only surviving through the pandemic but literally THRIVING as things begin to open up and people are getting back out.
It’s a true testament to not only the perseverance of our industry, but to the leadership and vision that we find within it as well. And sometimes, you’re lucky enough to run into an entire family of Leaders, like the Erdman family pictured below from Henderson, NV, thriving, growing, and building a legacy post pandemic.
I’ve been fortunate to be able to connect with friends and clients and continue my journey with Ninja Star Photo after the uncertainty of the past 2 years. Thank you all for your support and kindness, it means the world to us!!

Permission
The community at JMAC is incredibly special and supportive. Several members of the iaido class came to support me at a regional USAPL powerlifting meet. Their cheers inspired me— two gold medals! Proof that the benefits of martial arts are far reaching.

As we approach JMAC's 16th Anniversary, it's fun to see how we looked "back in the day."

14 years ago JMAC Gen I officially opened its doors.

Thanks to a small group of friends who believed in our vision, we were able to create a powerful, supportive place for people to build fitness, mental health, and character.

What an amazing 14 years it has been!
