Metamora Martial Arts Featured on WMBD 31 This Morning

Ahead of this Saturday’s grand re-opening of Black Belt Magazine’s Best Children’s Program, I represented Metamora Martial Arts on WMBD 31 This Morning show with Donnie Tillman and Karissa Sanford.

I performed an application from the kata Kanku Sho, a 150-year-old form. I’ve performed this form numerous times at competitions around the state, and I even won first place with it at the AKA Grand Nationals in Chicago earlier this year.

You’ll get to see my full award-winning performance of Kanku Sho in its entirety this Saturday, July 13, at our grand re-opening, along with demonstrations from our students.
