Happy Holidays Everyone!

Here is something you may find somewhat fun. It's a video called "Enter The Santa" that was... once done.
Some of our kids were challenged to spar. A prize of a HAT if they could go... so far.
Place a foot upon Santa's Hat would get you one too. A Hat for your head not him or her, but YES!... only you!
So watch and smile as the kids have some fun, kicking towards that HAT, so they too.... could have one.

On October 28th 2012 you will want to head on down to the Bangor YMCA between 5pm and 8pm to take part in the first annual Pre-Halloween Family Bash. This community event is collaboration between the YMCA and MARTiAL YOU non-profit organizations.


The event was brought about to give back to the community and help raise awareness of the great programs hosted by the YMCA, which incidentally include martial arts. As you well know MARTiAL YOU is all about martial arts and we are supporting these programs that benefit everyone involved.


The bash will be sponsored by several local area businesses and run by volunteers from both the YMCA and MARTiAL YOU. We are still looking for sponsors and volunteers to help out so if you have something to offer don't hesitate to email us at info@martialyou.com or call Shawn Hill at 207-745-7380.

8/05/2012

I would like to thank everyone who has been supporting Project MARTiAL YOU so far! The support in our direct circle has been great, but now we need more support from those around us to make this Project a real tangible thing that our community can use and be part of.

There are so many good causes out in the world that focus on recovering from disaster, misfortune, disease and abuse. Though we are not attempting to directly feed the hungry or cure a disease we are all about promoting health, wellness, self-improvement and community which can lead to great things for each individual and society as a whole.

I am calling on everyone who believes the structure of martial arts can make a difference and all of those who have been changed by martial arts and those who know someone who has been, to spread the word and help us make this project a reality. The potential is great, the benefits are greater and the outcome for thousands can be the greatest.


Thank You
Shawn Hill (Founder)
