House of Champions Academy of Martial Arts
News and Bruises

Wishing HOC Founder & Chief Instructor, Shihan Mark Parra, a most excellent birthday today! For so many of us, he is a mentor, long-time friend, teacher and man who inspires, encourages and pushes us to be our best! Where would we train without our “home away from home” House of Champions?

 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Shihan Mark, for all the love and care you give all of us! We love and appreciate you!
