USKS is celebrating their 25th anniversary with their annual benefit “˜Just For Kicks.’ The event will be held at Berean Christian High School in Walnut Creek on Jan. 28. It’ll benefit local food banks and promises to be a real kick in the head. Sorry, couldn’t resist. For more info, reach ’em at www.usksmartialarts.com
