Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts Academy has long been a staple organization in the Prince George’s County community. The academy hosts youth events throughout the year to help raise money for their stellar youth competition team. This weekend will host the Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts Academy Annual Youth Festival 2013.
The festival will bring members of the academy together, including youth, adults, parents, friends and family to celebrate the warm weather and success of the academy and it’s youth team. The festival will have food, beverages, games, music and fun for all attendees. There will be face paintings and moon bounce for the little ones, and skills games and challenges for the teens.
The Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts Academy Youth Festival is open to all Academy members, family and friends, with a small donation of $25 per person. All proceeds will go directly to the Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts Academy youth Competition Team for the 2013 IBJJF World Championships later this month.
