This was bad but it could have been a lot worse. According to WCNC-TV, a car came careening through a wall at Leadership Martial Arts in Steele Creek on Saturday (3/6) afternoon. The vehicle skidded to a stop in the viewing area on the main mat. Thankfully, none of the students or instructors were hurt, but it was a close call.
The martial arts studio will be closed through at least Wednesday due to the extensive damage. The total cost of damage has not yet been determined but the school has received an outpouring of support from the community. You can see the dramatic video footage obtained from Leadership Martial Arts’ security cameras below.
