June Kickin’ Newsletter
Now it’s easy to stay up-to-date on the fun activities, events, and exciting accomplishments at TM Martial Arts! Read all about it in the following Kickin’ Newsletter…
Kierra Ruiz is a student in our Combat Hapkido program. She has worked her way up to earning her Orange belt. Outside the studio, Kierra is just as impressive! This past month, she graduated from Plainfield Central High School with a 5.0 GPA! Kierra has many accomplishments under her belt. She participated in Cross Country, Track, Marching Band, and Wind Ensemble, which is her school’s most elite band. She is a member of the National Honor Society, Wildcat Athletic Leadership Club, and she was named winner of this year’s Student Council Scholarship! Kierra plans to attend the University of St. Francis in the fall to study nursing.
We caught up with Kierra this week to talk about her amazing accomplishments. She told us how martial arts training has helped her succeed in life. “It took me out of my comfort zone and taught me people skills, confidence, how to try something new, and how to show respect.” Kierra plans to continue training at TM Martial Arts, even while she attends college. Her advice to other students: “Don’t give up, even when it’s hard! Work hard and listen to your instructors. They know best.” Congratulations on your amazing accomplishments, Kierra!
