Congratulations to Trendon Beebe. Trendon was our first student in our Little Dragon Program. Trendon trained in our Little Dragons Program and moved to our Kids program where is is working towards his brown belt.
Students from Wheeles Yoshukai Karate Academy helped support the 4th Annual Supper Slugger Softball Tournament. Students were asked to bring in cases of water and gatorade with exchange for a ticket to hit Sensei Chris & Sensei Kristie in the face with a pie. We are thankful to be a part of Jensen's Heart of Gold and the fight against childhood cancer.
We are very proud to add 4 more black belt to our school. Aiden & Josh are a father son combo, and were able to test for their black belts together. Zach and Ava also have parents enrolled in karate. We are very proud to see these families not only spending time together, but working to achieve a goal together! Keep up the hard work! Osu!
Maggie has been selected as our student of the second quarter. Maggie started in our Little Dragons program and has moved up to our kids class. Maggie always chooses a great attitude and is willing to take on any challenge. We are enjoying helping her on her journey to black belt! Maggie doesn't always wear a turkey hat, but when she does, she is selected as student of the quarter! (Hat Day) Osu!

Our Students raised over $7000.00 for the Team Taylor Break-a-thon!!!! Taylor is one of our karate students and was recently re-diagnosed with Leukemia. All of our students set a goal of how many boards they were going to break, and took pledges/donations. We are so pleased with the turn out that we had at the event. Thank you to all of our students and parents for their support.
