Game officials stopped the game when lightning became frequent to the south on Friday evening with 8 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, and play re- sumed from then on Sat- urday morning in heavy rain showers.

Football cont. on pg. 10 0 0 By Cecil Lawson KyNewsGroup cecil@kynewsgroup.com Owingsville now has its very own martial arts school, Noble Dragon Ken- po Karate School, and the instructor brings a wealth of experience to her stu- dents. Joyce Knight began offer- ing martial arts classes at the Bath County Board An- nex Office last August, and she quickly realized she needed more space. She eventually relocated to the old Boyd's Restau- rant building in the "pock- et" at 33 South Court Street . She is also a certified scuba diving Mixed martial arts competitors instructor.

"When I learned, I was not treated as a woman," she said. "I was taught just the same as the men in the class. I got the satisfaction of knowing that I could compete against men in the school and in competitions." And she has the winning trophies to prove it. "But they are not my pride and joy," she added. Classes are held on Mondays and Thursdays, beginning at 5 p.m. Classes are divided into ages 3 to 5; youth; and adult. For the little ones, Knight says she wants to introduce them to the art and to develop self-discipline as a foundation for further learning. For the older kids, she emphasizes the self-confidence that comes from that discipline. And for adults, there are the bene- fits that come from learning to defend yourself on the street, and "knowing when to walk away," Knight adds. She noted that working with kids has made her a better person and that she is grateful in her classes to get to "borrow" children and help them become strong and more self-confi- dent. This past Tuesday she held her first women's kick- boxing class and put the participants through what she called "a light workout." She would eventually like to offer a women's self- defense class on Tuesdays and to create a an-all ages demonstration team for the school. Knight is always accept- ing new students at the school: " If you are interested in taking that next step to- ward developing more con- fidence and self-discipline, give Knight a call at 859- 404-1046. 8 [111!!!!!]I!!UIJ!
