FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Entire Family of Black Belts in Bryant Prove Kicking Together Means Sticking Together

Seattle, WA June 6, 2008 – For the first time in Bryant history an entire family is earning their black belts tonight.

Dr. Marcio Sotero De Menezes, wife Rosario and their 15-year-old daughter, Gabriela, and their 12-year-old son, Paulo, will celebrate earning their black belts this evening. The Sotero’s, along with 6 other local black belt students, ages 10 and up, will be featured at a ceremony tonight at 7:00pm in the Eckstein Middle School Auditorium (3003 NE 75th Street, 98115).

Program Director and Instructor, Astre Kay, said, “The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the progress and growth in students and the amount of support they get from their families. After working here for 3 years I’ve found that the families that kick together stick together.”

Interspersed between performances by students as young as four years old, our newest black belts will be demonstrating some of the skills that they have developed over the last several years as students at Alpha Martial Arts. Black belt mother and wife Rosario Sotero de Menezes said, “Confidence and positive self-esteem are benefits of martial arts for individuals of all ages. In my experience there is nothing more confidence building than mastering a self-defense technique to the point that you feel you could use it in a confrontation or perfecting a form so that your body flows effortlessly through the movements.”

Chris Herrman, Executive Director and Master Instructor of Alpha Martial Arts, believes earning a black belt is a process of physical and personal growth…far more than most would suspect. “Alpha Martial Arts curriculum and the Powerful Words Character Development system provide our students with the opportunity to learn about, practice and experience first hand, the skills that will help our students to become grateful, helpful, leaders in our community. Our school stresses the importance of developing an Attitude of Gratitude. This is one of the many ways we build black belt leaders from the inside out.” says Herrman.

Chris Herrman is the Executive Director and Master Instructor of Alpha Martial Arts and has helped thousands of kids, teens, and adults to embrace a positive and healthy lifestyle.

Interview about Miley Cyrus: Dr. Robyn on the Dr. Drew Pinsky Show

I had the pleasure of being on Dr. Drew Pinsky‘s radio show the other day (April 29th) to talk about the Miley Cyrus issue and the impact on parents and tweens. For your convenience, I took out all the commercials and just left the actual discussion between Dr. Drew and me. I believe the interview was about 15 minutes long.

Enjoy!
