Thank you for all of your hard work and for taking the time out of your weekend to join us on the mats.

Frequency Martial Arts Bowling Night

Frequency Martial Arts RMNU CAMP 2014 01

This past October I had the privilege to attend the 3rd Annual RMNU Camp in Tampa, Florida with other members from the Frequency Martial Arts team as well as teammates from other RMNU schools around the globe.

It was a great time and one of the “off the mat” events we participated in was a night of bowling at a local alley. I would like to see how many people are interested in getting together on Saturday February 28 between 6 and 8p at Pheasant Lanes in Bloomington.  The Party Room is available and bowling is just $3.25 a game with free shoes.

If you are interested in going, please e-mail me at or reply through Facebook.
