We would really like to thank Andrew Smith for putting on a great seminar Saturday. We all learned so much and hope it isn’t another 10 years before he will be back. Here are some Pictures of the seminar.
10 years ago Andrew Smith did a seminar at our academy when he was a Purple Belt and James Speight was a Blue belt. Jay was 11 years old at that time. There are things Andrew shared with us back 10 years ago that we are still using on a daily basis. The information Andrew shared with us Saturday will be useful for decades to come. If you missed this you missed something good. Get with your partners at the gym and hope you can catch up.read more →
