Mrs. Tecklenburg regrets she will be missing the A.K.E.A. Christmas Party this year, and would like to share this with her fellow warriors:

I will be at that game in the freezing Toronto stadium, and thinking of all of you: My Warrior Partner Ms White, and our core group.  As Mr Tork has said, you know who that core group is.  (Mr Hansen, Mr Tipton, Mr Allen): I feel you are a part of my family (And I have HIGH standards of men in my family because of my great relatives).  I have grown because of these men in my AKEA journey.  Not withstanding, I have learned & love to train with Mr Lercher, Mr Franklin, & Mr Preston: you guys are invaluable & so insightful too. I love you Ms Barnette for being SO picky w/ Ms White & I.  I love that Mr Tork has this passion for making Women empowered & strong.  Thank you Mr Moore for allowing me into your group & being patient with me, (that is amazingly huge to me). I love AKEA in that they train in so many different forms of Martial Arts: Mr Remillard in ground fighting, Mr Bailey in AKKW, Mr Moore in Escrima/empy hand, etc.  Thank you Mr Harmaning for have the most original Dojo that has become a 2nd family to me.  But most of all, I am so honored to have the best Warrior Partner EVER in MS WHITE!!!!
