Toys 4 Tots – Black Belt’s Favorite Techniques Toy Drive – Thank you to all who supported!

This seminar has been one of Claudio’s favorite events of the year to bring gifts for the holidays to the less fortunate children. We want to thank all the black belts that took time out of their holiday weekend to share some of their Favorite Techniques with all that attended. If you were not able to attend but still would like to help this charity, please feel free to bring in a new unwrapped toy or if you don’t have time to shop you can donate cash and Claudio will shop for you. You can drop toys off at any of our schools. Again we want to thank all that supported this great day! Happy Holidays!

Congratulations to all our newest black belts and all of our students for promotions this year of 2014!
