Over 100 students at Poston Road Elementary School have had the
opportunity to learn Tae Kwon Do, a from of martial arts. Mr. Brandon
Sieg and Mr. Todd Miller of Gentry Martial Arts and their staff have
provided the instruction. The students will complete their sixth and
final sessions on May 23rd. The students who participated ranged in grade
from kindergarten to 5th grade. Along with learning how to control basic
kicks and punches, great emphasis was put on learning self-discipline,
focus, effort, and respect. Gentry Martial Arts believes that all classes
must aid in the process of personal growth, be safe, and be fun. "We feel
blessed to have the opportunity to impact the lives of so many kids and
glad we have such a supportive team of black belts, who drove from
Indianapolis, Greencastle, and Bloomington to assist." Gentry Martial
Arts hopes to continue similar programs in the future.
Mr. Sieg, a professional martial artist and trainer, is
the martial arts coordinator at DePauw University and both Mr. Miller and Mr.
Sieg are on the martial arts instructional staff at Indiana University. Both
instructors believe that the people of Martinsville deserve the same quality of
martial arts education that is available in nearby universities
