We came, we saw, we bashed trash! Several families of Young Forest Martial Arts came together this past Saturday to make a difference by doing their part in cleaning up our community. And, as you can see from the smiles on the faces of our brave young warriors, the Nor’easter-like wind conditions had no affect on their disposition and eagerness to spend a whole Saturday morning making a difference.
As a martial arts school owner, my goal has always been to utilize my school to get children and adults active in the community; to teach the value of giving back to the community – ultimately to teach students to use their strength and wisdom for righteousness, which is the essence of what it is to be a Warrior. That’s what we are in the business of – developing individuals into Warriors.
We at Young Forest Martial Arts could not be more happy and proud of our Kung Fu Family. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times – it’s difficult to find a good student, let a lone one with an actively involved family. We are so fortunate to have such great students with actively involved families. We’d like to give a special thanks to some of those families who removed more than 30 large bags of trash from Darke County roads; The Hughes’, The Miller’s, The McNulty’s, The Thorp’s, The Perry’s, The Brown’s. And thanks for all the other ways you support Young Forest Martial Arts!
