4th of July Celebration in Elk Grove

LKMA celebrated the 4th of July in style with a booth at Elk Grove’s 16th annual Salute to the Red, White, and Blue.

As a traditional martial arts academy, we place strong emphasis on mental training, discipline, ethics, aesthetics, meditation, breathing techniques, and of course physical training. That said, we also know how to have fun!

Special Teams: Leadership



These are pictures from a Saturday Leadership class.

What they do: The leadership team is learning to be leaders. They learn to teach classes and discuss effective teaching techniques. Each member of the leadership team is responsible for periodically planning an outing to work on team bonding. The team member plans the event from start to finish: choosing a location, day and time; researching cost and meals as well as making car pool arrangements and communicating effectively with the team. This helps the team members learn organizational skills.

How to join: This team is invitation-only. Based on your discipline and observation of your leadership qualities, the Masters may invite you to join.

Fees: There are no fees for this team, but some events may require payment. The team requires a lot of commitment in terms of time and dedication.

For more information, contact Master Alex Lee at the North school.

How to join: When there is an opening on the team, the masters will announce an open try-out. All students, all ages, are invited to try-out at that time.

Fees: There is a $75 charge for the demo uniform. The uniform actually costs $150, the school pays half.

What’s Happening at LKMA


Steve breaks two bricks at iFest!

On May 19, LKMA went to iFest – the annual Rancho Cordova International Festival. The Demo Team performed just before the fire dancers and the M.C. prompted a standing ovation from the audience. We had a lot of fun and passed out a ton of flyers!

On June 2, there was a parents’ group meeting at the North school. We discussed summer events including the upcoming Camping Trip from July 13-15. There’s still room for a few more families! Included in the fee: campsite fees, all meals, group activities, and a safety whistle. Please see one of the Master’s or secretaries for more information and the sign up sheets. Sign up and payment due by June 30!

The next parent’s group meeting will be on July 7th and will include a BBQ and pool event! All students over 18 and parents are invited. We will post more information as it becomes available.

June 2nd also saw a movie night at the North school.

The week of June 25-29 will be Sparring Week at the North school.

On June 30th, there’s North/South school crosstraining from 12:30-2:30 p.m. There is a $5 fee for sparring and lunch will be provided. We will honor fathers for Father’s Day at that time.
