Black Belt Pride

November 2013 Student of the Month

Luke Knight
Luke started with our school in November of 2012. At times Luke seems to struggle with new material, however through the third principle of Black Belt (perseverance) Luke seems to over come any obstacle.

Always trying 100% Luke can be counted on to set an example for others to emulate. Luke seems to enjoy all training, and especially sparring, in which he seems to have been improving greatly.

Sifu Rick wishes to salute not only Luke but his Dad (Mike) along with Luke’s Grand parents for all their support.

Make sure you have positive people in your life that bring out your best results. These people can be your parents, teachers, classmates and more. In order to produce our best work and see great results we must have great people in our lives to help guide us. Have you ever heard the saying “Practice makes perfect?” Although this may come off as a generic pick-me-up, the statement holds true value. We have to work for the things we want out of life and we have to work hard to see our desired results. So, what are some things you are working at in hopes of good results?
