Rising Phoenix Martial Arts instructors Jeremy and Joshua Roarty, along with Sara Richardson and Australian Master John Gill, took home first place in each division they entered at the IMAC World Martial Arts Championships on June 23 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Richardson, a 19-year-old student and part-time instructor, won the Women's Tae Kwon Do Forms division.

The self-defense team of John Gill and Jeremy and Joshua Roarty swept the Self-Defense divisions by taking first place in both Open Self-Defense and International Self-Defense.

This is the third year in a row the team has secured the World Self-Defense title and counts as its 14th time taking first place in those divisions.

Richardson and the Roarty twins also presented a self-defense demo in the Grand Championship Finals.
