This weekend will be a chance to return to familiar grounds as Akron, Ohio welcomes the next NAAFS Proving Grounds Series. There I will start to spread the word about a couple upcoming courses for corners and coaches, the first being held in Cleveland on June 4th. Feel free to visit my new website www.completecutman.com to learn more details.
