Make no mistake about it when it comes to fight and you want to do it right then call on Coach and Motivator Austin Wright. Mr. Wright can inspire just about any student to championship levels, says Parent and Coach Kenneth Jackson Sr. His son, Kenneth Jackson Jr., Black Belt, won a Karate Grand Championship in 2010 Trelawney Jamaica and placed 1st in the A.O.K.A. Championship and in this past U.S Regional’s. The proof is in the consistent annual Championship Titles since 1985.
Elite Team Wright, Out Kicked, Out Shouted and Out Punched their Opponents to win various divisions at the U.S. Open Regional Martial Arts and Karate Championship held at St. Andrews Gym in Bayonne, NJ.
