Photo of the Week: Bitter-Sweet Goodbyes

Just before leaving home and beginning her collegiate career at the University of California, Berkeley, Sheel “Ceo” Chitalia delivers a crushing right palm to Bob’s face—per his request—before she, in return, gives him a departing thank-you kiss for all the abuse, pain, and crushing karate blows she delivered to him in the last four years. Frankly, Sheel and Bob have had a special relationship. Whenever Ceo would do “Bobwork,” her eyes, face and smile would light up like a Fourth of July fireworks display.

Photo of the Week: University Bound

The beautiful and lovely Sheel “Ceo” Chitalia poses with Mr. King after her last lesson before going off to college. Sheel will begin her freshman year at the University of California, Berkeley. This young woman is a tribute to humanity. At the KIA we all know how tough and intense she is; a veritable lioness when it comes to fighting and self-defense. We all know, too, what an extraordinary young woman she is—bright, charming, intelligent, respectful, humble, and oh, did we say intense?

Just outside Boston is one of the most famous structures of American History, the Longfellow House. It not only served as the private residence of the renowned American poet and educator, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, but it was also the tactical residence of General George Washington during the initial stages of the Revolutionary War. It’s an amazing historical monument in Cambridge and definitely a stopping place for tourists.

Photo of the Week: High Ground

Looking down on inner Boston Harbor, this photo was taken from the top of the Bunker Hill Monument. Notice the USS Constitution approximately 45 degrees to the upper right of the photo’s center. The top of the monument offers a 360-degree view of the entire Boston area. Such a beautifully visual experience is well worth the 294-step climb to its zenith of 221 feet.

Photo of the Week: Don't Fire Until You See the Whites of their Eyes!

“Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes!” It’s one of the most famous sayings originating from the American Revolutionary War. This famous order was delivered by Colonel William Prescott on June 17, 1775, to his colonial troops stationed just below the high ground of Bunker Hill on Breed’s Hill, which was located lower and closer to the water of Charleston Harbor so the attacking British troops could be engaged earlier.
