Confidence Martial Arts would like for you to meet one of our new black belts: Jackie Jacobs. Miss Jacobs is 8 years old and has been training with us since she has been 5 years old. Miss Jacobs is in our Instructor Program here at Confidence Martial Arts and also enjoys competing in tournaments. Last year, while competing as a color belt, Miss Jacobs qualified for the Districts Tournament in combat weapons sparring. Miss Jacobs is a big part of our school, she trains 3 days a week in traditional classes as well as XMA and Creative forms and weapons classes, and she also helps out by assisting her instructors in teaching the beginner level classes several times a week. She also supports the school every chance she gets by attending every event Confidence Martial Arts puts on.
