Zig Ziglar used to say: “You can get everything in life you want, if you can help enough other people get what they want.” Last month, I was reminded of that quote by the mother of one of my students, Ms. Petersen. While I usually like to write about things that I’ve experienced; this time, I have chosen to simply pass along her experience at our school and about her son, Lincoln. I was very touched by her words, and I hope that others in our community may find value in them. Ms. Petersen, originally shared her thoughts through Social Media, and gave us permission to reprint them here. Enjoy!
“We found karate for Lincoln to teach him balance and focus. We didn’t know we would find so much more. We found a family that we didn’t have in Colorado. Lincoln found great role models and wonderful friends. I found amazing friends and a community to help me raise my children.
To give you some insight, Colorado Karate Club is a family run business from the Sensei to his daughters (that also teach), to the amazing woman Kimberly (Mrs. Sensei) behind the scenes that completely runs this business! Kimberly is always so helpful even when I have stupid questions because I haven’t read the newsletter. Maria is always such a sweet blessing to all the kids with her soft but firm discipline and bright smile!
We truly couldn’t be more pleased with karate and found a lot more value in what we originally thought we were signing up for.
The Strohmeiers run their business with love and it really shows in the community they have built. This family puts their heart and soul into your children. They truly love and care about the kids and set a great example of integrity and respect.
Lincoln has learned so much from Willy, Elizabeth, Wendy, Maria, and all the other Senseis.
I am extremely grateful for this entire family and their beautiful hearts. Karate has been a place where Lincoln has made wonderful friends and I have too. Something that I really didn’t expect. All the moms here are like mother hens and not only watch their own children but help with yours too. It’s not karate, it’s community.
If any of my friends with kids are looking for a sport that will teach their children respect, love, and determination please check out Colorado Karate Club in Brighton you will not be disappointed.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart to all of you karate families and CKC!”
