LOMBARD – In July, Sky Centers Martial Arts in Lombard was recognized with the Mark of Excellence Award from Century Martial Arts, a martial arts retail company. This is the sixth consecutive year the school has received the award.

The Mark of Excellence is given to a select number of schools around the country that display commitments to improving the community and lives of their students through martial arts training.

George and Krista Sky, owners of Sky Centers, accepted the award on July 2 at the TAO nightclub in the Venetian in Las Vegas during the Martial Arts SuperShow, an annual, martial arts trade show. Staff from Sky Centers often attends the show.

"I'm honored that Century [Martial Arts] has recognized my school for our commitment to martial arts," George Sky said. "The true test of any instructor is the impact made on students' lives and it is incredibly rewarding to receive such positive feedback from the industry."
