2012 Mariah Moore the Eskrimadora Calendars are here!

The 2012 Mariah Moore the Eskrimadora calendars are here! And they're on sale online on my facebook page at:

The 2012 Mariah Moore "The Eskrimadora" calendar is Mariah's fundraiser to help fund my training, travel, and all other expenses associated with the 2012 WEKAF USA National Championships to be held in Las Vegas NV and the 2012 WEKAF World Championships(location TBD). The calendar is loaded with kicks, weapons, and action. This is a unique 12 month calendar showing the multiple sides of me including highlights from all three styles I train in(Arnis, Kyokushin, and TKD). All photos have been handpicked by me! Many of the photos were taken by world renown photographer "KICKPICS." Includes pullout centerfold. I will autograph the calendar at your request! 10% of the net proceeds will be donated to the Adult Congenital Heart Association in the names of Mariah's friend and fellow martial artist Mark Cummings who was born with only half a heart(but twice the determination!) and her cousin Jason Merchant(1980-2008) who was lost to complications resulting from heart defect he was born with.

A Great Big Thank You!

I just wanted to take some time to thank every single person who has supported me throughout my martial arts career. Your support and encouragement keeps me going and without every single one of you, I would not be where I am today. I cannot tell you how great it feels to have the support of my family, community, and fellow martial artists! I have accomplished a lot in the 9 years that I have been training, but this is only the beginning! I plan on not just reaching for the moon, but rather past the stars.
I am so truly grateful for every single person who has prayed for me, followed me during my many journeys, supported my dreams, and encouraged me to do greater and better things.
May God bless you!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so very much again!*

D-Lux Charity Challenge 2011

I'd like to start off by saying that I LOVE THE D-LUX CHARITY CHALLENGE TOURNAMENT! I have gone for 3 years in a row now, and I do have to say that Sensei Adam Lux does a great job at keeping the tournament classy and run smooth.
This year I decided, what the heck!, I'll compete in ALL of the divisions! I placed 1st in Traditional weapons performing with the sickles on ropes, 1st in open weapons performing with the tali-bong to the song "Faint" by Linkin Park, 2nd in open forms performing the form Sabayon to the song "Remember The Name" by Fort Minor.....and the most exciting news?! I WON BLACK BELT GRAND CHAMPION FOR THE 3rd YEAR IN A ROW!!!!!! I was so incredibly excited! I worked my butt off for it too!, and there was great competition!

I traveled with my friends and teammates from the Bedard Black Belt center, and we all had a ball! I am so proud of everyone who competed! They did so great!!! GREAT JOB GUYS!! :) And BIG thanks to Kyosanim Dennis for going and coaching all of us!!!

St. Patricks School 2011

I always have such a wonderful time at St. Patricks School! Last year I went and did a few performances and spoke to them about achieving dreams and goals, reaching for the stars, and never ever giving up. I also told them about the words that i live by, "I can't means I don't want to". So, this year I thought I would change it up a little bit! I did 2 weapons demos to music, and this time, I talked to the kids about stranger danger and safety awareness! I think it is so important for kids these days to know about the dangers in the world, and how they can easily avoid them. like for instance (one that I ALWAYS make sure to do) never ever park next to a van or vehicle with dark or tinted windows. And if by chance your mom or dad does, get in and out of the car on the other side. After talking about strangers and stranger danger, I took all of the kids on the gymnasium floor and taught them some karate/TKD moves! THEY LOVED IT! I am so happy it went so well! There was an age ranger from k-8th grade and I got feedback that everyone had a ball! :) Can't wait to go back next year!

I am so very sorry that I have not written in so long! This year has been so busy ALREADY!

For those of you who do not know by now, I have been sponsored by KWON USA for a few years now...and this year I made the COVER of the catalog!! This came as such a surprise! Everyone at KWON have been so wonderful to me and I cannot even begin to express how much I appreciate all that they have done for me!!! I am truly living the dream! I have dreamed of being on the cover since I first began training in martial arts.

I have also been picking up more and more hours in the dojo's. I plan on hitting the tournament circuit hard this year!! I am also doing more school assembly's, motivational and safety awareness speeches, and performances/demos.


Hope all is well with everyone!
God Bless!
