SMSD-PARTYHAT
~ SMSD 1 Year Anniversary Party ~

On Saturday August 8th from 1-3pm we will celebrate our 1 year mark as a Reality Based Self-Defense School. Our actual anniversary date was June 1st, yet we were too busy building and launching new and improved programs to notice.
We encourage all current and past students to attend with family and friends to enjoy pizza, ice cream, and other goodies, along with some awesome fellowship and stories. I would personally invite anyone that played a major role in promoting, encouraging, and keeping me humble and anchored in my faith to make my dream a reality.
I will never forget those that prayed with me, and for me and my family. Please come see what the Power of Prayer can do and the Reality of Empowering others can achieve.
The school will be open during the party being held in the Community Room at Alnwick Community Center 2146 Big Springs Rd. Maryville, TN 37801. Information will be available for all our Courses and Seminars for anyone wanting to check us out for yourself of family….come join the Fun!!!
