As 2018 comes to a close, we take some time to reflect on the amazing year we have had. We are humbled and extremely grateful to have such supportive and dedicated students and families. SMA is truly one big family – you can feel the camaraderie the minute you step through our doors. The support of our students shows at belt tests and tournaments when everyone cheers on their fellow SMA training partners. It is truly a wonderful thing to be part of. Mrs. and Master Morris would like to thank everyone who is involved with our school – we wouldn’t be where we are without ALL of you!!!
