New Year, New Students
The new school year has kicked off and our students have started their journey of learning character through karate. This year, we will impact more than 9,500 students in 59 schools across Texas. We are excited to launch a new program at Thornton Middle School in Fort Bend ISD. Students have suited up in their new uniforms and are currently focusing on the value of Honesty for September and Loyalty for October.
