Today's Class Schedule at Next Generation Martial Arts in Thibodaux, LA will cover Pre-k Martial Arts, Jiu Jitsu, Self Defense.
Before we get into what's going on in classes today, we would like to highlight some of our students. The above picture is of Jordan and Jesse LeBlanc. They recently competed in the Tap Cancer Out tournament and brought home two silver medals. Yes, we can write about their competition accomplishments, but it would fail to highlight who they are as human beings, and the amazing job Jordan and his wife Amanda are doing raising their two daughters. The Leblanc family raised over $3,000 for this charity competition and won the award of top donor. Most of which was spear headed by 12 year old Jessa. The humanitarian side of this young lady is inspiring to say the least, but she couldn't have raised the funds alone. This is where her parents played a huge role in setting an example of hard work and selflessness. Her father Jordan helped her prepare for the competition and even though it's outside of his comfort zone; he competed alongside his daughter to help ease the stress of competition. One of the ideas that drove their funds over the $3,000 mark was a bake sale. Jessa had the idea but limited baking ability. So, guess who stepped in to set another example, her mom Amanda. She taught Jessa and her younger sister Juliet how to bake brownies, cookies, rice crispy treats, etc. Then they sat outside and sold the goods as a family unit. The Leblanc family is proving to be a light in the world and we are happy to have them as part of Next Generation Martial Arts.
