After raising 3 boys, I think she deserves it!!
Other points of interest from the 2010 ITC: Haakon Pettersen became the first student from Norway to pass through the ranks from White Belt to Black Belt. The annual raffle to benefit KICK START reached a new record high raising enough money to sponsor 7 kids for an entire year! Also, this year Mr. Norris' twins, Danilee and Dakota, now 8 years old, participated in the training and competition. It was great to see our Grand Master walk around like a normal proud parent videoing his kids in the ring!
The next ITC will be in July 2011... start making plans now to attend with us. It's an event you will never forget!
