At-Risk Youth Shine in Martial Arts Program

One year ago, the Midtown Miracles youth martial arts project was just an idea shared by St. Petersburg Police Chief Anthony Holloway and Rev. Dr. Bryant Keith Harrell. Today it has blossomed into a two-program class geared toward at-risk youth in the St. Petersburg area with nearly 80 children, ages 4 to 15. “I was tired of turning on the TV and constantly seeing these babies in trouble,” said martial artist and pastor Harrell. “We get a lot of foster kids.” Harrell, who is a 10th-degree black belt, and his wife, Leotte-Keiva Harrell, run the program out of the Thomas “Jet” Jackson Recreation Center, 1000 28th St. S.

WHAT MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES OFFER KIDS (THAT TEAM SPORTS DON’T!)

Whether it’s part of structured in-school activities, during recess, or part of an after-school extracurricular, children have many opportunities to stay active and play with friends.
