Brian has been teaching martial arts for a year and a half now in Salt Lake with his school's name being Wasatch Martial Arts Academy. He has around 45 students in 7 classes a week, ranging in age from 4 to 40's. He has a website and a blog (check it out, he put some clips from the test last week), a business license and spends all kinds of time doing bookkeeping, but for some reason it wasn't until last week that I finally got the feeling like his school was official.

On occasion of the black belt test he was hosting he came home with a box of shirts and water bottles stamped with his school's logo. I was pretty excited. The logo is actually a picture of Brian. I wore one of the sweatshirts on a brisk day to meet him downtown for lunch. Riding the train on off hours can feel a little uncomfortable (despite my city experience and non-judgmental nature) with all the strange folks riding with me and the boy. I felt extra safe with my martial arts logo, not an easy target when I could be hiding some painful skills. Don't tell anyone I'm not.

I hope the black belt test went well. I forgot that Bri hosted it. I love the logo on the water bottle!

That does look like Brian. Thought so even before I read your post.
