Back to School

Students, teachers, moms and dads, happy Back to School!

It’s meet the teacher today and then most of you actually start back to school this week.



School is where children go to lay a foundation, learn to read and write and other relevant academic subjects, and one of the places you learn to learn; an important skills in the game of life.

And my school, our leadership academy that also happens to teach the most practical self defense, is also where families go to lay a good foundation- of character, leadership, and self defense skills.

We develop confident and competent Blackbelt Leaders, prepared to survive and thrive in any situation, and empowered to lead where they are at and into their futures.


KMMA students become life long learners and learn to lead.

They’re prepared for success.



Prepare To Live; Empower To Lead!
