Welcome to the Karate Institute of America

Photo of the Week: Goldilocks & the Brown Bears

One of the wonderful aspects of the Karate Institute of America is the number of enduring relationships created over the years. One of the most precious is that of “Goldilocks and the Brown Bears,” i.e., Nicole Hackler, Lori and Jenny Brown.

This summer Nicole had a chance to visit SoCal and she was able to connect with her KIA buddies, Lori and Jenny. Of their relationships, Goldilocks writes:

A true example of a friendship borne of the KIA, and one that is still very much alive and kicking after 21+ years! Can you believe it’s been that long? There wouldn’t BE this incredible friendship without the catalyst of the KIA!

How sweet their relationship is! And how grateful we are to have these terrific ladies as part of our ever-enduring Karate Institute of America legacy.
