Local Family is Martial Arts Dynasty http://druidcityliving.com/index.php/business/item/1251-local-family-is-martial-arts-dynasty http://druidcityliving.com/index.php/business/item/1251-local-family-is-martial-arts-dynasty L to R: Kelly Bailey, Brett “BJ” Bailey, James Bailey and Tyler Bailey

James Bailey started studying martial arts seriously in 1978. Back then, it was mostly adults learning the fighting arts.

“When it started, 100% of the students were adults and the program was modeled after the Korean military,” Bailey said. “It was much more aggressive and there were no pads early on.”

Bailey had always been athletic and had enjoyed sports in high school. A buddy invited him to try martial arts and he found it "intriguing." He started training in Birmingham at gym owned by Craig Kollars. It was a fortuitous pairing – Kollars went on to own seven Tiger Rock franchises in the Birmingham area. 

Bailey had an affinity for the sport, and when Mr. Kollars wanted to open a gym in Tuscaloosa, he asked him to run it.  “I jumped at the opportunity,” he said. Bailey opened his first location in Tuscaloosa in 1981.

Now, James Bailey owns four Tiger Rock franchises – two in Tuscaloosa and two in Kansas City. 

BJ Bailey (left) with his brother, Tyler Bailey (right), a 5th degree black belt.

 His children are involved in the business. Son Tyler (25) is the Defending Tiger Rock World Champion 5th Degree and his son BJ (27), a District and National Champion, also works in the business. Both started studying martial arts at four years old.

Mr. Bailey says the business has changed a lot since 1977.

“Starting in the mid-80s, the media has affected the style (the Karate Kid movies and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to name two influences),” Bailey said. “Now, we have more of a self-defense/competitive-athletic focus. The program is now for men, women and children of all ages.”

There have been ups and downs throughout the years. Five years ago, they lost one of their buildings in the tornado that hit Tuscaloosa, just as they were set to celebrate 30 years in business.

The James Bailey family and their staff at Tiger Rock have big plans for the future. 

“Our Tiger Rock goal is to reach 120 Tiger Rock franchises over the next five years,” said Bailey. This is their 35th year in business. Meeting challenges, good staff and a growing family has all been a part of the history of Tiger Rock in Tuscaloosa, and will be important in the next 10 years.

Meet Dr. Katy Drain: A Veterinarian with Passion for Pets http://druidcityliving.com/index.php/business/item/1223-meet-dr-katy-drain-a-veterinarian-with-passion-for-pets http://druidcityliving.com/index.php/business/item/1223-meet-dr-katy-drain-a-veterinarian-with-passion-for-pets Dr. Katy Drain recently opened Capstone Veterinary Hospital in Tuscaloosa.

On any given day, Dr. Katy Drain can be found busily caring for animals at her newly-opened Capstone Veterinary Hospital. Drain, who has worked as a veterinarian in Tuscaloosa for the past 15 years, is passionate about the pets she treats, and their owners.

“What drives me is my love for animals, the nurturing, love and compassion that I have for them,” Drain said. “Second is the science, and third is their owners and the relationship I have with them. I love that owners trust me.”

 

Drain, a mother-of-three who grew up in nearby Gordo, received her bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Alabama and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University. There was never a question of where she would practice.

“When I graduated from vet school, I came back here. I knew I wanted to be close to home.”

Opening her own practice, Capstone Veterinary Hospital, is the culmination of a lifelong dream for Drain, who said she knew from an early age what she wanted to do.

“When I was younger I had a little dog, Josephine, I called her Josey. Josey was my child before I had human children. The love I had for her and the love I had for animals, it felt right,” said Drain. “I just remember thinking, ‘I don’t know if I want to go to school for that long.’ But then I thought, what else do I want to do? Nothing. This is it. I pushed forward from then on.”

When it comes to role models, Drain doesn’t hesitate to name hers.    

Dr. Katy Drain and her trusted vet tech, Tasha Morrow, are standing next to a sketch of Drain’s beloved dog, Josey.

“My mom was and still is my role model for loving animals and caring for them. She was a nurse, and I grew up in the country. Everyone dropped dogs off at our house. We had lots of dogs and cats at times. Her gift of caring still continues on. She’s retired now, but donates her time to the free health clinic in Greensboro. And yes, animals still get dropped off at her house – or they somehow find her.”

Dr. Drain’s Capstone Veterinary Hospital offers all manner of pet care, from surgery to wellness visits, as well as boarding. Drain said while the majority of patients she sees are dogs and cats, she’s treated all manner of animals.

“I’ve seen hedgehogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, bunnies, iguanas, goats, pot-bellied pigs, snakes, even miniature horses and donkeys – and I love all of them. My very first patient out of vet school was a pet turkey who had a respiratory infection. It was awesome.”

Drain said her goal is to do everything she can to meet the needs of pets – and their owners.

“Pets are family. There are so many people that I see, pets are their only family. And they put their trust in me to do everything,” she said. “It’s a huge honor. I find owners interesting, and I enjoy getting to know everyone.”

Being a veterinarian is challenging, Drain said, in part because the field itself is always evolving.

“Science and animals drive me. I’m constantly learning and researching. A few years ago, I had a student shadowing me who wrote me a thank you note and he said, ‘The coolest thing about your job is you’re not only a medical doctor, you’re a dentist, an anesthesiologist, an oncologist and a pharmacist.’ It’s true. It’s never boring.”

Dr. Katy Drain knows she has met her calling.

“Think about Sunday night, and you’ve had a great weekend – you never want to dread Monday. So come Sunday, I can’t wait for Monday morning. I’ve always been like that, my whole career. I’m so ready, I’m fired up and I’m happy. I am truly blessed that I get to do this for a living.”

Business Spotlight: Robert Kuhn, Capstone Bank http://druidcityliving.com/index.php/business/business-spotlight/item/1151-business-spotlight-robert-kuhn http://druidcityliving.com/index.php/business/business-spotlight/item/1151-business-spotlight-robert-kuhn Business Spotlight: Robert Kuhn, Capstone Bank

This week’s Druid City Living Business Spotlight is squarely on Capstone Bank President and CEO Robert W. Kuhn, Jr. Our sincere thanks to Mr. Kuhn for taking the time to answer our pressing questions, and revealing some incredibly interesting things about himself. It is our hope that everyone in our community will get to know him just a little better. Thanks, Robert! 

 

Name: Robert W. Kuhn, Jr.

Title: President & CEO

Company: Capstone Bank

 

Current city of residence? Northport

 

Family? Lynda- Spouse; Daughter Anna Katelyn, 13

 

What is your educational background? Tuscaloosa High School Black Bears, Associate Degree- Alexander City State Junior College, Bachelor of Science- University of Alabama- Birmingham, Finance and Investment Management Commercial Lending Graduate School- University of Oklahoma

 

Where did you grow up? Tuscaloosa. Much has changed, but it is still the same – a great place to grow up and to raise a family. Such a vibrant environment today!

 

What was your first job? I was a Golf Shop “Bag Boy” at Tuscaloosa Country Club, and I worked at McDonalds in Alberta City. I loved the day I got promoted from cashier to flipping burgers on the grill!

 

Why did you choose your profession? Well, I think it chose me. After a brief stint as a professional golfer, I realized I needed to find a “real job” if I was going to make a living. A very kind man in the banking industry needed a collection officer and provided me an opportunity as the bank’s “repo man.” From there, my career was born!

 

In 10 years you’ll be..? At retirement age, but probably needing two jobs to recoup those prior 10 years of supporting a wonderful daughter! College tuition (maybe); wedding (maybe) clothes, shoes, etc.

 

What is the first thing you do when you get to the office? Grab some caffeine (Diet Mountain Dew) and check my never ending emails (a necessary evil).

 

What is a hot topic in your industry? Compliance (too much government oversight), fraud (too many crooks) and consolidation (our industry is shrinking in the number of banks).

 

What’s the most influential book you’ve read, and how did it influence your career? My favorite books revolve around the game of golf, most notably Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. The experiences growing up around golf and the messages of these great golfers always stress character, honor and honesty. Most of the influences in my career have come from individuals, their experiences, guidance, and encouragement. I am motivated by stories of their struggles and hard work.

 

Number one item on your bucket list? You know, I really don’t have a bucket list. Boring, I know, but I enjoy my life every day. I have been very blessed with a wonderful family, great friends, many life experiences and an opportunity to make a living. Growing old with my wife and together raising our daughter in a fashion that she can be the best she can be, are most important to me.

 

What’s the first website you check in the morning? I still love to get my news from the newspaper. Something about carving out that time with the paper in your hands, and washing the ink off afterwards. I could literally go a few days without visiting a “website.” However, I must admit, that I recently (and reluctantly) joined Facebook (it is addictive!), and I do log in at some point each day.

 

If you had to choose another career what would it be? Anything outdoors.  Maybe a farmer? The therapy of bush hogging on a tractor can’t be matched!

 

What’s your guiding business principle? Simply treat others as you would want them to treat you.

 

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? In life: Treat others as you would want them to treat you.

In business: “You must construct your own network of reliable sources to deal with people and businesses you don’t know.” That is a quote from my mentor.

 

What keeps you up at night? Absolutely not one thing.

 

What’s your hidden talent? I like to play the spoons. I once sat in with a bluegrass band. Unfortunately, I didn’t know when to quit beating those spoons. I thought you just played them all the way through the song – wrong!

 

What’s your favorite local restaurant? Bento (my favorite sushi) and Kozy’s for the food and atmosphere.

 

What’s your favorite local or professional sports team? Growing up in Tuscaloosa it’s a way of life: Roll Tide!!!
