Hello… Mr. Brumitt here coming to you on my drive to the studio.
Just recently I was thinking about all the things that go on at our martial art school.
I thought to myself that there isn’t a person in the world that couldn’t benefit from all we do.
In fact, I really am amazed that we don’t have a reality television show that highlights what we do on a daily basis.
I also asked myself if this was the case either we are the world’s best-kept secret or people really don’t know the power they have at their fingertips.
When writing this, I thought… will people think this is bragging?
I am sure some will but then I realized my students and the families in our school know us and realize that we are sincere about what we do, how could anyone think that.
I spoke to a mom of one of our students the other day and after was very happy with what she said. She felt very comfortable expressing how she felt and didn’t hold back when it came to complimenting us on what we do well.
I was honored to know that she understood our program and me as well as she did. It also helped me feel good about what we do here at Tri-Star Martial Arts Academy.
I’m most appreciative.
Sometimes students and parents forget that compliments go along way. So, I decided to write this article entitled “Did You Know?”
Did you know that we have promoted hundreds of Black Belts in the last 22 years?

Our goal is to help all of our students achieve what they desire in life.

I have seen the results firsthand and know that what we teach will enable people to gain the power to change their lives forever.
Lastly, did you know due to COVID-19 we have lost over 80 students?
