Kia is being recognized for his growth as a karate athlete as well as his leadership abilities and his courage. At almost eight years old, Kia has been training for three years and has grown to be seen by his peers as a leader of the class.
We are very impressed with Kia’s self-confidence and ability to maintain a calm focus when in times of stress. Recently Kia (by himself), led six of his fellow karate peers through a team kata performance in front of his entire school, and afterwards performed a second, more advanced kata on his own.
To add to the list of his recent accomplishments, Kia competed at his first sparring tournament, and also earned his green belt. This karate kid is a gentleman and definitely going places!
Congratulations on all the success Kia! Keep up the great work!
