Welcome to the Karate Institute of America

Photo of the Week: Beautiful KIA Smiles but . . . Beware!

Two of the Karate Institute of America’s loveliest students are Zemia “Barracuda” Garrett (photo right) and Hannah “Hannibal” Shamassian (photo left). They are dedicated, driven, talented ladies with great smiles, as we can see from the following photo.

However, let it be known, they are developing their martial arts skills to the point where anyone—man or woman—would be woefully unwise, i.e., foolish, to assault them. Those beautiful smiles are real, no doubt, but so, too, are the looks they can manifest to ward off any assailant, smiles which clearly send the message, “Don’t tread on me!” And believe this, those more serious looks are a harbinger of the mayhem these women can inflict on anyone seeking to harm them. So . . . beautiful smiles, absolutely, but beware. These women can absolutely bring down the thunder!
