Get Your Kicks this January

Ah, the joy of kicking one’s board when it’s time for a new belt. There’s something so satisfying in hearing that snap-crunch as the wood splinters.

Keep in mind though, there’s another fun way to get your kick on. CMAA offers morning and evening Fitness Kickboxing classes led by Sensei Roberts or Sensei Price.

Student Darrell Anderson has said, “The kickboxing classes are tough, and I keep going back. That goes back to the instructor; even when you feel like you are about to pass out, they make you feel you can do more.”

Get to Know Graham Young

Kohai Nicholas Glenn has been training in the martial arts for about seven years. He’s a testament to Sensei Price’s oft-repeated words: “never give up.” The 15-year-old Myers Park High School student said it’s not always easy but it’s important to “ride out the lows and enjoy the highs. In the end, it will absolutely be worth it.”

As a teacher the black belt says he’s learned to “be a better person by helping students through their struggles.” Although he enjoys playing ultimate Frisbee, reading and playing video games, he’d be happiest if he had the ability to go Super Saiyan.
