Family - Veteran Owned & Operated
Thunderbird Martial Arts Academy of Albuquerque (Thunderbird Martial Arts for short), is a family - veteran owned business.
Tom is a retired Air Force officer, with almost 23 years in the military. He and Misty have lived in various locations around the U.S. during their marriage, finally settling in Albuquerque, NM upon his separation from the Air Force.
Tom works full-time supporting the military as a defense contractor, while Misty volunteers at their daughter’s school. Tom usually manages the business and teaches karate. Misty also keeps him busy with odd jobs around the house.
In their spare time, they can usually be found spending time with their daughter in various parts of Albuquerque and New Mexico. Occasionally, they travel elsewhere to visit friends and family.
