2/8/22 Due to new insurance restrictions by the city and the school district, we can no longer offer our Soccer workshops at AC Stelle Middle School through the City of Calabasas, but private soccer coaching is always available, or form your own group soccer class at great rates! contact us if interested. (this change may effect the ability of other independent instructors to offer other classes taught after school at AC Stelle too)
2/1/22 Please update our email to: email@example.com
we’ve recently had issues with the email forwarding of firstname.lastname@example.org, and have missed recent emails, it’s been resolved, but to be safe just use our gmail address, sorry for any inconvenience.
The city of Calabasas just cancelled all indoor classes for the Winter session due to Omicron, it’s frustrating as other gyms and studios can remain open, but it’s out of our hands. Zoom martial arts hasn’t been successful, so we’ll wait for our in-person spring session! We should be out of the surge by then, and everyone can feel safe doing our classes.
Congrats to our newest Junior Blackbelt, Abhinav D. Awarded 12/18/21 He started training with us during the pandemic (after transferring from another studio), he worked hard, and had a great test!
His brother (currently a green belt) is also working toward his way up the ranks. Way to go Abhinav!
November 2021 Master Zacharatos has added another credential, he is now a USA Boxing Coach! In addition to coaching students, he can be in the corner in the ring for students that want to compete in boxing competitions!
(For over 20 years, Master Zacharatos has been a professional kickboxing/MMA referee and judge for the California state Athletic commission)
Wishing you all a Happy Safe Holiday and a Happy New Year in 2022!
The pandemic has impacted everyone in some way, there have been ups and downs, and great challenges, but also some wonderful moments that may not have happened otherwise, and we emerged stronger! We’re grateful we can spend the holidays together with family and friends this year again!
Master Zacharatos & Jamie Celebrated their 25th anniversary in December 2021! (32 years together!) Who says you can’t have a hint of a boxing theme at an elegant wedding at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills! On the way back down the aisle after the ceremony, they walked to the theme from “Rocky”! And their wedding cake toppers were little mini golden boxing gloves! It was wonderful to celebrate . . . with people! (vaccinated guests only) #Get Vaccinated, then party!
