Happy Spring Kickboxers!
The air is finally less grey and feeling fresher and we have SO MUCH happening in our studio in April which we are so excited about!
My first topic of discussion today is weighing very heavy on my heart. As I reflect on what I am calling "the slap heard around the world" which I witnessed broadcasted via the Oscars, I can't help but be truly devastated that this event has gained such massive attention over the atrocities happening over in the Ukraine. The Oscars was the prime avenue for communication and action for this horrible world event and the discussion was basically non-existent. This room was stock full of wealthy people with tons of influence and all anyone can talk about is Will Smith's abhorrent behavior. It is truly sickening.
Our beloved community at our studio is but one very tiny dot on the map but we feel we need to make a small but mighty support to this cause. For the month of April, we will be using our progression of the month which is Roundhouse Kicks to make a donation to WorldVision.org. This amazing non-profit sends one of the highest percentages of donations directly to the causes they are supporting. Beast Mode Fitness will donate one penny for every roundhouse kick this month to this wonderful organization. Our goal is 150,000 kicks equaling a $1500 donation. We will also have a jar on the desk for any other donations our community wish to make. Please keep #Ukraine in your thoughts and give to any organization supporting their citizens if you are able.
