The Brotherhood of the Fist

Sounds scary right?  Well it’s not.  In point of fact, you’re in it right now. 

As a part of the Mountain Academy of Martial Arts you have joined our Brotherhood, our fellowship, our family.  And as such you need to remember that when you are here you will be taught how to use your fists, your feet and your whole body as a weapon. 

But more importantly you will learn how not to. 

We will expect the best of you and push you to unleash your potential.  It will not always be fun.  It will always be work and we will always push you, but it will always be worth it.  You will learn technique.  You will learn control.  You will learn power.  You will learn friendship. 

When you are here you need to remember that you are not trying to beat or hurt your partner. You are there to help them learn and perfect what they need to work on and they will help you.  If you have a problem, all you have to do is ask.  We are all here for a common goal, the betterment of ourselves and the school as a whole.  Just like a family.
So I say welcome to the Brotherhood of the Fist.
