To Red Dragon, from the Maki Family:
Samantha’s Tae Kwon Do training began in 2007. There were tough times: times of frustration and feeling of abandonment by her former club and she did not want to continue in the art of Tae Kwon Do.
In 2010 she began training with Sensei Keith in Japanese Ju Jitsu. After only a few classes she felt the passion for martial arts return.
When Red Dragon opened its doors in May 2011, it literally “opened a new door” for Samantha and her training.
Master Brendan and Master Tina pushed Samantha and convinced her not to give up on her
Tae Kwon Do training. In 2012 when Master Jordan joined Red Dragon as the new Tae Kwon Do instructor Samantha’s interest in the art continued to grow and she began to excel and was 100% committed to get her Black Belt.
You cannot become a Black Belt without training partners: Thank you to the great students and all the instructors at Red Dragon Martial Arts Academy for your support and encouragement.
Now 8 years later, Samantha is honored to stand in front of Master Jordan, Master Brendan, Master Tina, Master Eric and Sensei Keith and prove to them that:
“A BLACK BELT IS A WHITE BELT THAT NEVER GAVE UP”
“It takes more than martial arts skills and good credentials to inspire children and adults to reach higher levels of accomplishment. The best martial arts instructors/coaches also know that they are teachers for more than the time they are providing instructions. Sensei Holme, is an excellent role model, encourager and instructor with the right balance of expertise, experience, discipline and heart. He upholds the martial arts tradition of discipline while being attentive to each child’s next level of development. He inspires confidence while challenging his students to grow. It has been an awesome privilege to witness the positive transformation in my son’s attitude and confidence since he began to receive Ju-Jitsu instructions from Sensei Holme.”
“Sensei Keith’s classes are organized, disciplined and well run. He expects a lot from his students (both adults and children) and they are eager to rise to the challenge. It is amazing to watch how those with no background in martial arts can move from belt to belt, improving upon each technique with every class. The confidence it has instilled in my 10 year old is amazing. Speaking from a parent’s point of view, you get your money’s worth from the time you step through the door until you walk out at the end of class. Kudos to you Keith!”
“Ever since I stepped on the Dojo mat I have fallen in love with the discipline, focus, and skills provided under the careful toutelage of Sensei Holme. He has always been a tentative instructor as well as someone who I can also call a friend. One of the many things that stayed with me over the years that i’ve been training with Sensei Holme is how open he is to his students variances in martial art styles or methods of approach as well as their points of view. This to me is what helps create the harmony and comaraderie that I experience on a daily basis in this Dojo. His method of teaching has always provided a safe and fun environment for people of all ages to aspire to the teachings that the Martial Arts provide. Another element that I enjoy about Sensei Holme is the cleanliness and organization of his facility as well as the breed of student this type of training atmosphere creates.”
