It’s a classic American success story. Sidney Burns of Bedford, VA, has grown from a karate crazed 8-year old to a master instructor with a well-established school and a year-old COBRA-Defense location that has rocketed out of the starting box.
Many dedicated black belts were orphaned at some point in their career and left without an instructor to advance them in rank. MATA is proud to offer an opportunity to advance in rank under the family tree of Joe Lewis>John Graden>you.
Self-confidence demands a high reality-orientation; we help people to grow by holding rational expectations up to them, not by expecting nothing of them.
While you may not see CrossFit as a direct competitor, you may be surprised by what you can learn from them.
