Black Belt Pride
March 2014 Student of the Month
Vijay Madhavan is the student of the month for March 2014. Vijay started with AASD in January of 2014. It was so apparent from the beginning that Vijay was destined to do Marital arts with his outstanding work ethic and almost perfect attendance.
Sifu Rick and staff are always amazed at how easy Vijay is able to pick up new material with very little instruction. Vijay is destined to be a part of the Black Belt Club soon, on his way to becoming a true example for all.
Sifu Rick wishes to also salute Vijay’s parents Nachi and Anu, for all their support of Vijay and our Black belt school.
