    Default My instructor's school hit by car!!

    This is my friend and instructor in Redding's (Northern California) school- Mr. Scott Halsey. The studio is located on a corner where a busy road winds by. The school has been hit by cars before- cars that have veered too wide, etc. Pretty crazy this time!!



    Karate school suffers blow

    Students in white robes kicked and punched in the open air Wednesday as cars drove by a gaping hole in the front of their karate school.
    The owner of Scott Halsey's Kenpo Karate, on the corner of Market and Tehama streets, said an intoxicated driver crashed into his martial arts school early Wednesday.
    The driver was identified in police and jail logs as Jacob Tracy Mosteller, 32, of Redding. He was being held on suspicion of drug charges and driving under the influence.

    That has to make it a little on the warm side. Isn't Redding starting to heat up about this time of year?

    I'm glad no one got hurt and that repairs are quickly started.

    Ha ha!! That's funny!! I've worked out up there before and thought about a car coming thru the studio cuz where it hit is along the wall we line up at for beginning and end of class. Fortunately, nobody was in class at the time it hit. Whew!!

    I can remember a couple of years ago standing out front of work, on the main drag. Watching a car drift across three lanes of traffic and go through the wall of a motel. He took out the wall and the TV but, thankfully not the two kids sitting on the bed watching cartoons.
