“If you don’t try it, you’ll never learn,” Sifu Jay Lima said as a boy ran up to the mat and did a back flip. The children shouted the mantra back to their kung fu teacher as they each took turns practicing cartwheels, flips and rolls. Lima has been teaching the children at The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hall County the ancient martial art for the past three years.
