Reyes is doing something pretty rare too, trying to become a 10th degree black belt, the highest rank in the sport. And he’s doing it at 73 years old while still battling prostate cancer. He says he finds strength in martial arts.

## ## “It just gave me the fighting spirit to go on and keep on going and to never ever quit regardless of whatever,” added Reyes,”It benefits you, because it is going to improve your strength. It’s going to teach you life lessons that will serve you the rest of your life. We talk about discipline, perseverance, indomitable spirit. All of these amazing gifts that martial arts has given us that is truly helping all of us rise up.”

She is offering free community classes every Tuesday at 4pm at West Coast Martial Arts Reno

Meanwhile Reyes has also stayed busy, taking part in a virtual fundraiser that raises money to support health care workers and those on the front lines of the Covid 19 pandemic. You can watch his video here Covid 19 fundraiser
