"I am sorry I am a struggling college student but I love you both have fun see you soon! "
Iliyan and Jasmin started taking classes since they were four years old. Over the years, Iliyan has grown from a little boy who could barely stand still in line with his classmates to a very determined kid who practices karate even at home so he can win at the karate tournament.
Jasmin, former ballerina, turned karate princess has continued her strength training at Thousand Waves. In addition to learning martial arts, they work on strength and endurance exercises. Jasmin has better plank form and does better push ups than her mom.
What we love about Thousand Waves the most is the inclusive community they have built and we are now a part of. Students are taught to respect themselves and each other. Iliyan and Jasmin have developed a confidence in themselves and have learned with hard work, they can accomplish anything.
We want to continue the wonderful work that Thousand Waves has done for our kids and our community. Please help us raise money to help support this exceptional organization.
