CPR can save lives!

A group of 12 of our black belts and staff members took a cpr class at the san ramon valley fire protection district on Saturday. I would encourage everyone to take time out if their busy schedules to take this class! The 4 hours of training could help save someone’s life. Let me know if you’re interested and we can coordinate another session.

With earth day right around the corner, I thought this was a very thought provoking (and disturbing) video. It’s incredible how many plastic water bottles we recycle daily between the three schools. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just eliminate them all together?
