Team Zahand did an amazing job competing in different forms of the martial arts.  With good sportsmanship and great coaching, we will continue to WIN, WIN, WIN….  Competition is great. Students need to see how good they really are by competing against other students from other Dojo’s from different parts of the United States.

Congratulations to all the new “ALL AMERICANS” and for those who had will and spirit to test your skills so you can better yourselves on and off the mat.  Shihan and the staff at Zahand’s Martial Arts are very proud of all you.  Keep up the good work and remember “A black belt is a white belt who never quit”.
