ABKA visits White Mountain!!!

This week has been a wirlwind of a week, but I wouldn't want it any other way. Clint and I have been so busy, we haven't been on the computer-at all! It's been lovely to just disconnect while reconnecting with friends, each other, and having lots of baby time...

This past week we have had the blessing of the ABKA team which consisted of the Chief Instructor, Denny Holztbaur and his....Minion, Christa Baily! They came here 9 months ago in September for the very first time to help our karate school (well, not so much our's as Clint's and other's Karate class. I only say that because I'm not starting until September) get started up. It has been amazing watching and learning from them.

ABKA is a christian based martial art program which not only hits, kicks, and trains hard but they also dedicate their time to do important mission work around the world!

If you want to learn more about it...You can read about it here.

We held a community wide Karate Tournament on Saturday where all of Clint's student's performed their Kata's.
