Students have been tasked with decorating gift bags with 3 Divisions for Prizes. Tigers, Karate For Kids and Adults. All Tigers and Karate For Kids will also earn a RED star for participating. Deadline submission is Thursday, December 15.

Students can also earn a RED star for donating $20 for the gifts. All donations are tax deductible. Checks should be made payable to LEAD Tomorrow, Inc. or bring cash to the front desk.

Even parents got in on the fun!


What do you do if a bad guy attacks? The goal, of course, is to get away! What tools does a small child have to use against an attacker? We teach eyes, eyes, nose, nose, neck, neck, ears! Poke the bad guy in the eyes with their little fingers, hit them in the nose with the palm of their hand, interrupt the blood flow to the brain by striking to the carotid artery or rupture the eardrum by slapping their hand to the ear.


Who doesn't like an obstacle course challenge?


The staff is ready for a fun night of tricks and treats!

It truly takes a village to run a successful tournament, and our village is the best! Our parents and student leaders worked by prepping for the regional event in setting up, judging, score keeping, helping at registration and making the day run smoothly. After a very long day of competition you even stayed and packed and then unloaded the truck with the mats.

It is with the upmost gratitude that Sr. Master and Mrs. Keene want to simply say, THANK YOU!
