Family First Martial Arts Seminar
Franklin, Tennessee
Sensei Martin and Instructor Joji had an amazing time sharing sparring drills, conditioning and techniques with the instructors and students of Family First Martial Arts. Franklin is right outside of Nashville, Tennessee, which made this seminar even more enjoyable as they both took in the sites and sounds of Nashville. Our sincere thanks to Larry and Dani Kooyman for the excellent heartland hospitality.
