Never Mess With a Raptor

Tristan “Raptor” Ligtvoet (pronounced “Light foot”) easily dispatches his attackers—Chris “Growler” Grau (red gi top) and Kim “Cultivator” Thomas (all black gi). Raptor has come a long way up since his younger, and much shorter, days as a raptor fledgling. He will be testing for his 3rd degree Brown Belt soon. We’re really proud of him. Stay tuned.
