A belated Congratulations to Box and Burner Kelly Andrews for her wedding to Gary on the 30th October. It was a beautiful wedding and we were thrilled to be able to be a part of it! Kelly looked stunning and every bit the beautiful bride. Excellent speech from father of the bride Chris and Natalie and Marianne looked amazing - your efforts in Box and Burn paid off!!
Kelly supports JMA through her hair salon Kymeli in Joondalup - donating prizes for both our balls and raising money for PMH by donating 10% of all hair cuts/colours from JMA members prior to the ball.
Congratulations Kelly and Gary and to their gorgeous daughter Keira too!!!!
To obtain her red belt three at JMA Sophia Chila must now take on a leadership role. This is an advanced level at our school therefore a higher level of commitment and maturity is required.
Her task is to first recruit a minimum of ten friends and family members from school or otherwise and manage that team to provide a service that can benefit the community.The intention here is to teach the student the importance of team work and leadership. This level shows the power of many hands and the good feeling that comes from being part of a group working together to achieve a common goal.
Sophia has chosen to start the "Australian Earth Kids”Club. Below is some information about the Club.
"As part of joining my club kids will also become members of a non-profit organization known as Kids for Saving Earth which was started by an 11 year old boy who was dying of cancer. His name was Clinton and he had a dream of creating a healthy planet. His mum & dad now carry on the club that he started when he developed a passion about environmental issues & wanted to raise awareness & take action on all the neglect we were showing towards our animals & plants, skies & oceans.
The mission of Kids for Saving Earth is to educate, inspire, and empower children to protect the Earth's environment. As a member of this club, we will meet together every 6-8 weeks (or more often if we want to !!) to discuss and act upon environmental issues that we can really do something about! We can access educational materials from KSE & many other Australian resources & work to protect our planet in many different ways.
In our first meeting we learned how to create a small natural habitat at home; next meeting we are making bird feeders and soon we will have a guest speaker to talk about solar power & it’s benefits. There is so much to learn about and one thing I have discovered is that every person CAN make a difference !!
If any members of JMA are interested in my club or topics I am happy to provide information to them. Thankyou for giving me this opportunity to think about ways in which I can make the world a better place."
Well done Sophia, this is an inspiring way to complete your leadership task and a great way to help teach others about the environment.

Well done and Thank You to Jarn, Jasmir and Symba for showing their initiative and purchasing some plants for the JMA gym. This was part of their grading syllabus to show understanding and care for the environment. They purchased the plants with their own saved up money and have certainly helped make our envirnoment more green.
Thank you very much for choosing to purchase the plants for the Club and members to enjoy - not only is this showing your care for the environment but you are showing kindness to others as well!
Inspiring and dedicated work! Well done!

A huge thankyou to Ben Jones (Jonesy) and Aaron (wiggy) Micallef for their weekend charity work. I was really taken back tonight when Ben and Aaron told me that they both spent three hours of their weekend at the Carlovers Laserwash in Egdewater shammying cars to help raise money for Princess Margaret hospital. Really impressed boys.
It is amazing to see how many people have got behind this cause, your generosity has been overwelming. You have all inspired me personally and I am now looking for more ways that Joondalup Martial Arts and help our local community.
Well done JMA students, you continue to inspire us and make us proud.....
