  • Picking the RIGHT Martial arts school for your child!

    Picking the RIGHT Martial arts school for your child!

    For parents that are interested in martial arts for their children, finding the "right" school is most important.

    Personal Letter to the Families of Birmingham from Master Scarsella

    Personal letter from Master Scarsella Hello families of Birmingham, I wanted to tell you a little story about my history and especially about my favorite place growing up. I grew up in a small blue collar town and was incredibly small and shy for my age. I didn’t do well in team sports and had a hard time making friends. My parents recognized this and knew they wanted me to break out of my shell and learn to enjoy life more. They didn’t want me to me bullied anymore and wanted me to gain confidence in myself. My mom saw a new “restaurant” called “Tae Kwon Do”… or at least she thought it was a restaurant! She walked in and ....
