Thankful For Great Times at CMAA
Despite the fact retailers have run right over Thanksgiving in favor of peppermint this and gingerbread that and a sickeningly early turn to holiday music, we at CMAA want to take a moment to give thanks.
We’re thankful for all of the great families that make up the CMAA family.
We’ve had a lot of fun this year what with another successful black belt training year, seeing our students giving back to the community, and more recently enjoying Halloween craziness and the fun of a massive lock-in pillow fight.
Thank you for training with us.

Ten-year-old Amanda began her training in martial arts 18 months ago. She began thinking it would be fun and a good experience. Now she’s eager to get her black belt and learn new techniques. Her favorite technique? The hook kick. She said, “it’s an interesting kick and it’s different.” Asked what she’d say to anyone who might say girls couldn’t do martial arts, this Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy student answered: “Anyone can do anything and everything is possible.”
Did you know?
Charlotte’s Turkey Trot in the South Park area is in its 27th year this November? It’s also one of the largest events of its kind in North Carolina with over 10,000 participants.
Whether you decide to register for a family fun run or not, we hope you’ll spend some time out of doors and being active this Thanksgiving. We’re closed for the holiday Nov. 25 -28.
Let’s all be thankful for our good health and ability to practice the martial arts!
