First Annual Bragging Rights Karate Challenge

Here's a message from my instructor....

My name is Marcus Relliford, also known as Reverend Wind. I am a 6th degree black belt in Kang Rhee Karate, Assistant Pastor of Spiritual Union Abide In Christ Ministry. I’m a husband, father and a graduate of East High School. I’m also President of Rev. Wind Martial Arts Program and a vendor with Memphis City Schools. Currently, we have afterschool programs at Grahamwood Elementary School, Richland Elementary School, Willow Oaks Elementary School, White Station Elementary School, Snowden Elementary School, and Sea Isle Elementary School. We meet from 2:30pm until 3:30pm at one school per day each week. We have been in operation for nine years.

Martial arts is the expression of the human body which helps one train the entire being for Total Fitness. Our mission is to provide quality martial arts to influence the whole person – Mind, Body, and Spirit. For a complete person is a more productive person. And a more productive person is beneficial to everyone. Our motto is “we promote black belts and people; thus building character through martial arts training.”

This year, we will host our First Annual Bragging Rights Karate Challenge. We hope to have at least one hundred participants. There will be plenty of family and friends with these competitors. We are looking for partners and/or sponsorship to help us in our mission. To offset some of the costs of event, we will have a souvenir booklet as a fundraiser. This is an opportunity for good and positive advertising, promoting, and marketing. Prices for souvenir booklet ads are as follows:

Sponsorship $425.00 includes name and logo on trophy, full page ad and souvenir book.
Whole page $100.00
Half page $50.00
¼ page $25.00
1/8 page $12.50
Patrons $5.00
Souvenir book $12.00

This is the first of big things to come to help better our community and encourage our young people to be the best they can be. And we hope to have you with us. Please call Rev. Wind at 901-949-0372 or email at with any response.
