A local company, Crawfordsville School of Karate, is undergoing a name change. As of Jan. 1, 2019 the operation of the company will be under the name Top Level Martial Arts, LLC. The company has been offering first class instruction in martial arts and self-defense for nearly 25 years in the same location and will continue to do so. Tom Ward, owner and chief instructor at the school says, “There comes a time in every company when it makes sense to re-invent yourself. This name change will offer us more opportunities in the future to expand our business and offer more and more to our students and our community, and that’s what it’s all about. It’s been quite an experience spanning several months of work. We’ve changed our class schedule, our class offerings, all our paperwork and all our branding. Regardless of the name we’ll continue to offer great instruction to our clients.” Pictured are students of the school at a previous event.
