Martial Arts To Overcome Disabilities!!

Rafael Lovato Jr. - Friday, January 13, 2012




Lovato's recently had a very special guest stop by for some training. Matt Marcinek, of www.disabledgrappler.com, got on the mats at Lovato's and did some training and afterwards shared some very moving words to the students of Lovato's.  Matt suffers from cerebral palsy and has beat all odds to still become a Brown Belt in Judo and Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!!  Matt is a true inspiration and we were so privileged to have him on our mats!  Please support Matt at his website and follow him as he travels around the world doing motivational speaking.

If you are trying to overcome any obstacles in your life, call us today at 405-466-5255 and let Martial Arts help you overcome those challenges and focus on achieving all of your goals!
