Allen Park Martial Arts Center teaches a lot more than just blocking, punching and kicking! We are committed to building a better community "one Black Belt at a time!" With Christmas and the New Year right around the corner, what better time to give something back to our community than right now? The members, families, friends, and staff of Allen Park Martial Arts Center raised almost $1300 that will go to providing holiday food baskets for those in need in the greater Allen Park area. Additionally, we collected loads of brand new winter coats, scarves, gloves, and hats to donate as well. The donations were raised through our "Break-A-Thon Fundraiser." Caring individuals pledged $5 per board for their APMAC member to break. Everyone had a blast either breaking boards or cheering on their loved ones! Kids especially benefited as they learned the joy of giving. When we announced the grand total raised through their efforts, one child shouted, "Thirteen Hundred Dollars! That's going to help a lot of families!!"
Please enjoy the short compilation video of the Break-A-Thon Fundraiser board breaking below -- and pay close attention to the joyful expressions in the room! A special thank you goes out to our members, their families, our staff, and all of the friends of Allen Park Martial Arts Center for your contributions to this effort!
