I hope this message finds you all well and filled with the same warmth and gratitude I feel as I write these words. With immense joy and appreciation, I extend my deepest thanks to every one of you for your invaluable contributions to the resounding success of the Battle of Tampa Bay 26.

Your dedication, passion, and tireless efforts were the driving force behind the success of this event. From the months of preparation to the final moments of competition, your unwavering support and commitment shone brightly, illuminating every aspect of the tournament with positivity and excellence.
To our students, your enthusiasm and determination inspire us all. Your presence at the event showcased your skills and added a unique energy that uplifted everyone around you.

To our friends, volunteers, and sponsors, your generosity and selflessness made all the difference. Your willingness to lend a helping hand and provide crucial support ensured that every detail was attended to with care and precision.
To the ISKA and all competitors, coaches, and supporters, your sportsmanship and camaraderie exemplify the true spirit of martial arts. Your dedication to your craft and respect for your fellow athletes created an atmosphere of mutual admiration and growth.

A special mention goes to our esteemed German guests, who traveled from afar to grace us with their presence and exceptional talent. Your sportsmanship and honor on and off the mat were genuinely exemplary, and we are grateful for the opportunity to compete alongside such outstanding individuals.

Last but certainly not least, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to our new World Champions, Austin Bybee and Nick Cornelius. Your remarkable achievements not only bring glory to yourselves but also to the great city of Saint Petersburg. We are immensely proud of your accomplishments and honored to have you represent us on the world stage.

As we reflect on the success of Battle of Tampa Bay 26, I am already filled with anticipation for the next chapter. Please mark your calendars for May 10th, 2025, when we will again come together to face a formidable team from England. I cannot wait to see what the future holds as we continue to grow, learn, and inspire each other.
Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your unwavering support and dedication. Together, we have proven that anything is possible when we unite to pursue a common goal.
