Our biggest event of the year is coming! There’s two weeks left to get the Early Registration event plus T-Shirt price of $60 for our Annual Championships taking place on March 28th. It will cost $75 on the day-of. This Tournament at Skyline High School features student competition in sparring and form with our 3 associated Martial Arts Schools. We hope all students will participate!
This is the last week to custom order your TMA sweatshirt at the front desk. We have many different colors and styles (crew, hoodie, full zip) to choose from. They tend to run small so order one size up. Appropriate color sweatshirts can be worn in class. That means white or gray for all ranks, red for level 1 & 2 students, blue for level 3 & 4 students and black for Black Belts.
Buy raffle tickets at the front desk to benefit TMA scholarships. Up for grabs is a framed, autographed Marshawn Lynch photo with certificate of authenticity. We’ll be announcing the winner will be announced at the Annual Championships. You don’t have to be present to win. Raffle tickets are $3 or $10/4 tickets. If you have something you'd like to donate to be raffled off, please contact us.
