A large group of martial arts students presented their kung fu forms this month, one of them for the final time before he moves to a new job in Houston.

Joseph Butner leaves us at Martial Artistry with many fond memories of his exploits, as well as the heavy and speed bag station he so generously donated. We were delighted to see him present for his Purple/Red sash before saying goodbye to Albuquerque.

The instructors and well-wishers were treated to some exceptional wushu forms this month, most notably from the Little Dragons class for ages 4-8. We have some seriously good budding young martial artists!
