The intention of this letter is to serve as a tribute and personal expression of gratitude towards a family owned business in your community, HILLSBORO KARATE SCHOOL located at 125 W. Elm Street, Hillsboro, operated by first generation, Linda and Charles Kight and second generation, Kevin and Krissy Kight. Master Kevin Kight, 4th Degree Black Belt, his wife Krissy, 1st degree black belt and his father Charles, 2nd Degree Black Belt, all serve as instructors while Kevin's mother Linda serves as the administrative anchor which keeps daily operations flowing at a steady pace. The Kights are striving to make sure there's something for everyone at their establishment. Currently, students between the ages of 6 to 50 something engage in mastering the art of Tae Kwon-Do where age has absolutely no bearing on the ability to perform. A couple of new programs are also on the horizon, Turtle Cadets will cater to 3, 4 & 5yr. olds and a Tai Chi program will focus on women. In addition, the Kights also teach Defensive Driving and Alcohol Awareness for Teens. There's a great deal of hard work and dedication that each student must put forth to reach their next goal which may surprise most to learn it's not all just about the belt. Highly developed skills in self defense are only part of the learning process, not only do students quickly illustrate a sense of self discipline and self confidence as a direct result of this training, they also acquire so much more. The one single word I would think best describes what this particular school has to offer is TRANSFORMATION.
