As we look back on the past year we want to thank you for your generous support of Boys Town during the holidays. Our two newly promoted Black Belts, Adam Gilliland and Abbie Douglas, completed their project to pick up Santa's reigns and run our annual Toy Drive for Boys and Girls Town of California. A number of our families joined Abbie and Adam as they delivered gifts to Boys Town on Dec 17.
Thank you to all of the men & women who have served in our armed forces to protect us and our ability to enjoy the greatest personal freedoms and the opportunities in the world. A Veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and including, their life. That is beyond honor, and there are far too many people in this country who either don't understand or have forgotten that fact. Thank you Larry Gilliland (Sr) and Anthony Torchia for taking up a charge for so many of us that did not.

"The Nation will remain land of the free only so long as it is the home of the BRAVE" - Elmer Davis
"True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost." - Arthur Ashe

We wish you and your family a very happy and healthy 4th of July! Since school is out for the summer, let's remind our kids that Independence Day is more than a chance for family and friends to gather for barbecues and fireworks displays, it is an annual celebration to commemorate the courage and faith of our founding fathers in their pursuit of liberty. Let's remind ourselves that there are still courageous men an women serving in our stead who continue to fight for our freedom...
From all of us at Orange County School of Martial Arts | OCKicks - Happy Father's Day! We hope you all had fun in class yesterday with your kids during our specially themed "surf" session! We're looking forward to you joining us July 31st for the Surf Ninja! picnic at the beach.
And now an tribute to...
THE BEST DAD I KNOW...
Not to brag but, uh, I'm probably the best dad I know, and that includes my own dad. He got so mad at when I told him that...
Enjoy your light jazz fm radio this Father's Day :)
We wish all of our students, their families and our friends a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend. Please take time to say "thank you" to the men and women that you see this weekend who serve for our freedom and safety.

From all of us at Orange County School of Martial Arts | OCKicks - Happy Mothers Day! We hope you all had fun in class yesterday with your kids and that you felt a little more empowered after smashing through that board! If it weren't for you, well, let's face it, we wouldn't be here. And we wouldn't have received such sage advice as:
