In the News

**It would be noted that we haven’t been updating this page.  Plus One has been featured multiple times in the news since the last entry here… to include features on CBS and Fox.**
April 2014- while I have not kept up with this section of the website, I did want to post a link to this story about Stuart Scott.  He is an ESPN anchor and has trained with us for a number of years.  Currently battling cancer, Stuart is literally “fighting” for his life.  Good Morning America did a wonderful story on him that includes aspects of his martial arts training.  It can be seen at:–abc-news-topstories.html  Update… Stuart recently lost his battle to cancer.  He was a very important part of our family, and he will be greatly missed.  Thank you, Stuart, for all that you added to Plus One, and all that you did to better the lives of those around you.

In October of 2009, Farmington Life did a story on Marissa Malik.  We are very proud of all the students who train at Plus one.  It takes years of arduous study to become a black belt, and our test is one that is all encompassing.  Marissa exemplifies the character and skills necessary to be a black belt, and we are ecstatic that Farmington Life chose to do a story on her training, accomplishments, and how the martial arts are positively contributing to the betterment of her life.  The story makes for a great read.  Click the link for a .pdf version of the article.
