Our Student of the Month for May is Maya Ramnarine. Maya started with BKJJ about 7 years ago, took some time off to explore other activities, and returned last year with a renewed passion for Martial Arts. This young woman is a diligent and dedicated student, a fine example to her classmates, and she is kicking off a big Summer as she prepares for her upcoming Green Belt test.
For the first time in our 37 year history we awarded a Student of the Month award.
