Zebra Mats features Mr. Kern

Zebra Mats are loved at Lakes Martial Arts. Before each class, teamwork of parents and students prepare the floor with about 50 mats that weight a ton (actually more like 2500 pounds). The mats protect us as we practice teakwondo and they also look really cool.

This morning, Mr. Kern drove to a photo studio and he became the "model" during a photo shoot and video series for their upcoming advertisement. How cool! Mr. Kern is usually more comfortable in front of the camera (he is aportrait and wedding photographer full-time and also does animal portrait fine-art photography, too. This time, his side kick became center stage! Here he is behind-the-scenes of the photo shoot!

One of the scenarios Mr. Kern practiced move in his ATA 4th degree form while others laid around (this is pretend!). Stay tuned to see the final images on their website and perhaps in the ATA World magazine!

I enjoyed meeting Wayne Davis, the photographer, and his team! And that's a wrap! Special thanks to Pat at Zebra Mats for inviting me. They are supportive of our Minneapolis Parks & Recreation club program. They help to sponsor our successful Adopt-A-Mat program last summer (click here to read about it).
