  •   It was my mission to find 16 young hockey players a place to condition , get stronger,tougher ,learn balance and get motivated.. I found it with Joslin's Mixed Martial Arts.. Jeff these boys loved every session you gave them. We saw a difference on the ice they looked tougher and no one was pushing them around.I even heard one of our boys quote something you told him. Jeff you were wonderful with these kids, it shows that this is your passion.. Thanks for everything over the last few months. Fingers crossed the boys are on to winning their playoffs!! Hope to see you next year with another set of hockey players.. Sincerely the Peewee Glanbrook Rangers
