November 8, 2012By Clarissa Marroquin of South Houston High School
This whole week the boys PE class have been learning mixed martial art skills from Cantus Martial Arts owners Joseph and Rick Cantu. Each day this week the boys have been learning skills of MMA, they would crowd around the mats and observe the instructors every move. The exciting part is getting to try out there knew strategy on each other. This PE class now has a new strategy for learning.
“We love being here and showing students how mainstream MMA fighting can be fun and entertaining,” said Joseph Cantu. “Our class helps break the monotony from your regular PE class.”
