Dallas Fort Worth Soo Bahk Do Kick-a-thon for the Moo Duk Kwan®

The Dallas Fort Worth Soo Bahk Do Kick-a-thon for the Moo Duk Kwan® was a FANTASTIC event!

Brian Wilbourn Sa Bom Nim hosted the event at his studio on 11/07/13 and the attendance and enthusiasm was great.

Gups thru Dans and Young Warriors and Older Warriors all participated.  The support from the membership and their parents was great!!!!

We raised over $900 for our non-profit Federation to support its mission objectives and pursuit of its chartered purposes.

I have not seen so many cameras in one place in a long time and the pride exhibited by the parents was  really heartwarming to see.

Wilbourn Sa Bom Nim and I observed how much fun the event was for all and what a great bonding opportunity it was for all those involved.

If your studio has not yet hosted a a Kick-a-thon, I highly recommend that you do to support the Art and your school BOTH!

In fact, I urge you to take a moment and read this post to learn how I effortlessly attracted sponsors and new students without even approaching anyone.

With this one tip, you can probably achieve even more than we did!
