Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Foundations of Leverage seminar with John Salter. I was a small group (Due to Father’s Day weekend) but we learned a lot and had a great time. Thank you, John. You are welcome back anytime, brother!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Madison Martial Arts Connection at Silver Lining Taekwondo in Middleton.

It was a great event. We all learned a ton and had fun sharing and experience the martial arts. Look for other events that build community in the Madison Martial Arts scene. It was a great first step.

Thank to everyone who joined us at Ahuska Park for our Sunday Fun Day Training.

Keep an eye out for the next one!
