<![CDATA[August 25th, 2017]]>Sat, 26 Aug 2017 01:06:53 GMThttp://cmbkarate.com/master-brooks-blog/august-25th-2017A Sincere Thank You to all the Students and Families who participated in Summer Camp this week. I know everyone had a great time, and I for one, had a blast. I wish I could do this all day everyday. It's true, if you do something you love, you'll never work a day in your life. Thank you for the opportunity, I feel invigorated and renewed as instructor. I can't wait to kick off back to school time and welcome our new influx of white belts. A big congrats to all those who moved up belt ranks this week, well deserved. Work hard, play hard, train hard.

<![CDATA[Train for FREE at CMB Karate West Windsor NJ for Autism and ADHD Awareness Month]]>Fri, 07 Apr 2017 01:57:25 GMThttp://cmbkarate.com/master-brooks-blog/train-for-free-at-cmb-karate-west-windsor-nj-for-autism-and-adhd-awareness-monthWhen I started CMB Karate I knew I wanted to cater to those students who have Autism and ADHD because I knew the GREAT benefits the martial arts offers these children. 
Today I am proud to say 25% of my student base has ADD/ADHD or falls somewhere on the autism spectrum. CMB Karate is a safe space for those families who may not feel comfortable in other activities because their child learns a little differently then others. It brings me great joy to be able to open our doors to these students for FREE for the rest of the month of April.

-Master Christopher M. Brooks
PS: Look forward to us offering FREE classes for all Mothers in May 
and all Fathers in June.
