Congrats to the entire team and thank you for attending Amerikick this year! Next Year is our 40th Anniversary, hope you all can be part of it again. Thank You...Bob Leiker 🥋🥋🥋🥋
Christopher Joel Redford and Jack Berg are the best. Thank you both for my nunchuck routine and music for the Miss Earth United States competition. I was selected out of 100 contestants to perform onstage at nationals! Hopefully I'll be bringing home the crown for Team CJR!

[03/16/20]   **NOTICE**

Hello Everyone,

I have been monitoring the recommendations of the CDC. The safety of our students and our families is my #1 concern.

I have decided to close the studio starting Monday, March 16th through Saturday, March 21st. I plan to reassess the situation week by week.

Upon our return, I will be speaking with you individually about your accounts for make ups and we will finalize all of that in the next couple of weeks.

After this week, I may begin to offer 1 on 1 sessions to keep the students moving.

As always I thank you for your continued support during this difficult time. Please stay tuned for additional updates.

Thank you,

[03/12/20]   **ANNOUNCEMENT**


OPEN GYM will be held from 5:00pm-7:00pm everyday. This is open to ALL STUDENTS. Students may come and go as they please and will work on their specific curriculum.

Students will be required to wash their hands before attending classes and any student showing any signs of illness will be sent home immediately.

CJR is currently being scrubbed from top to bottom. Every surface, handle, and piece of equipment will be sanitized after every class. Our students health and safety comes first.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

[03/09/20]   8 Year Old Student: “It’s nice outside today!”

Me: “Yeah, Mr. Chris needs some sunshine in his life.”

8 Year Old Student: “You’ll probably just get a sunburn...”

A little kindness goes a long way ❤️ We are extremely happy and thankful for successfully hosting the “Sandwich Assembly Project” to benefit the homeless community!! We would like to thank “The Points of Light” organization and “L'Oreal Paris” for covering the event. We had an awesome turnout of volunteers who worked super hard for an end result of over 600 sandwich bags (in less than an hour!) filled with sandwiches, granola bars, fruit, & a note of encouragement! Special thanks to Mr. Christopher Joel Redford, founder of CJR Martial Arts, for graciously offering us the space for this event 🙏 We couldn’t have done this without the help of our amazing volunteers. Thanks again to everyone for making it a memorable day - your generosity, time, and selfless acts make such a great difference in the lives we touch. Go Team NEST!!!
