ENFIELD — State Sen. John A. Kissel recently visited Enfield-based Integrity Martial Arts, LLC to commemorate the business’s grand re-opening and to present staff with an Official Proclamation from Gov. Malloy recognizing Integrity’s commitment to north-central Connecticut.

The small business, located at Scitico Plaza, 585 Hazard Ave., prides itself in its character-development program.

“Integrity Martial Arts is making such a positive difference for north-central Connecticut’s young people at home, at school and in the community,” Kissel said. “I wanted to personally commend the staff. Through their hard work, area children become more focused, respectful, and disciplined. Through their teachings, they also bring about the physical benefits of coordination, balance and increased strength. The top-notch instructors here are committed to excellence. We are proud to have this small business here doing well in Enfield, and we wish them lasting success.”
