Making a Difference

PowerUP takes the benefit of Big Brother Big Sister relationships to the masses. Inculcating martial arts discipline in children during their formative years will change the lives of so many. I’m a huge fan of the concept and the people behind the curtain making it happen.​

Joel Katz, Green Belt Sponsor
