Kids Program Updates:
On Wednesday, September 30th, Coach Tony, Coach Ryan and two of our awesome Junior Ninjas visited Oldsmar Elementary School and presented a Jiu Jitsu and self defense demo for 30 elementary aged children. The kids were very well behaved and VERY eager to listen to Coach Tony. It was a very fun event and we hope to be able to visit other schools throughout the school year.
We will be holding Kids Belt Promotions on Friday, October 23rd at 5pm at Gracie Palm Harbor. Please come out and support our Little and Junior Ninjas as they are celebrated for their achievements.
We look forward to seeing you all in the gym!
