On Friday, June 17, 2016 the American Martial Arts Institute held our annual Father's Day Classes. These special classes allow families to train together for one night. Students may bring their fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other male guardians, and students who are fathers can bring their children. This year 22 family members trained together, practicing punches, kicks, basic forms, katas, and self-defense, but more importantly, they shared in the excitement and camraderie that traditional martial arts promote. The American Martial Arts Institute is a second home for its students, and it was wonderful to have so many families who support their training to join us on the training floor for a night of traditional martial arts training. The instructors moved from group to group throughout the night so that they worked with every student and guest. The students also helped their mother to learn part of their highest kata. The group came together into one training floor at the end of the night for self-defense. The instructors assisting Master Stalloch this year included Master Morris, Master Freleigh, and Mr. Faulkner. It was an exciting night and a lot of fun!
