We're so excited to welcome Kenneth Tomson to our staff as an assistant instructor in the kids Jiu Jitsu classes.


Mr. Kenny, as the kids call him, began taking Martial Arts in 2010 at Revelation and now proudly holds a brown belt in Ninjutsu.


Kenny loves working with kids so it was a natural fit for him to become Sensei John's assistant in the kids classes held every weekday.


“I find enjoyment from helping lower belts learn. That look of accomplishment when they finally learn the move is the best!” said Kenny.


The kids are having so much fun with Mr. Kenny!
