Congratulations to John Holmberg! After going through 4 surgeries (both hips and both shoulders) look at him pitch like itโ€™s nothing! Along with being excellent at our self defense training, he is a life long baseball fan and we know it was a goal of his to be able to throw again! His right arm was incapable of throwing a ball more than 20 feet for the last 5 years. This is just 5 months after the r shoulder became steel! This should be an inspiration to everyone, especially this time of year to never quit!!

Itโ€™s with great sorrow to announce the passing of my father Mel Ackerman. He fought a valiant fight with dementia for the last two years.

My father Mel was a great athlete, having earned 7 letters in high school but his love was always baseball, which he passed on to me. I played 4 years high school and some college until I met Joy.

The really important thing though is not only did he come to every game I played, he came to most practices too. His favorite saying was โ€œAnyone could be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dadโ€ and you were a great dad!

Mel was a military vet but did his service as captain of the Army baseball team traveling across Europe. He had the time of his life in the military and not many people can say that! He was a big supporter of my training with the IDF and the system of Krav Maga especially since most of his family was lost in the Holocaust.

Mel is survived by his wife Bernice (it would have been 65 years in January), his son Jay and wife Joy and his daughter Lisa. Also 6 grandchildren and spouses Josh, Tiffany, Justin, Tina, Jenna, Dax, Matt, Desiree, Ashley and Michelle and 8 great grand children. I know if there is a team in heaven youโ€™ll be captain. Donโ€™t forget to touch all the bases before home, rest in peace dad.

Special thank you to Dr. Victor and Tamara Zach and Dr. Ali Araghi, your expertise and kindness knows no boundaries. We are so fortunate to have life long students and friends like you.

Your loving son and daughter in law,
Jay and Joy.

We take a moment of silence to remember all those who we lost, who fought, and are still fighting from the events of 9/11 twenty two years ago. We thank the entire first responder community for what they do and will continue to train them to make them safe while on and off the job. Take a moment to thank someone in uniform for what they do. The more sheepdogs out there, the safer the world will be!
