FALLBROOK — On Thursday, October 1, Fallbrook Martial Arts (FMA) students, families and friends broke 2,081 boards and raised more than $4,000 for the American Taekwondo Association’s H.U. Lee Memorial Foundation, which gives college scholarships to high school seniors.

The event was sponsored by many local businesses, which were designated as board sponsors and had teams of FMA students breaking in the businesses’ names.

Local donors included Main St. Motors, Major Market, Bello Lei Salon, Fallbrook Propane, Dr. Daniel Flores, the Lystra family, Village Liquor Shop, Fuller Paving, MRW Group and Village Investors. Food was catered by Jacque and Chris Pierson of Rio Rico.

The event commenced with a memorial tribute to Heather Simonek Glick, a parent of a FMA student, who recently passed away. Fallbrook Martial Arts also commemorated its one-year anniversary at its new location, the Merlot building on Main Avenue.
