The Lenix family is very appreciative and thankful for the overwhelming support through this time of pain and difficulty. In honor of Mitt Lenix.
The Mitt Lenix Memorial fund has been setup in conjunction with the family and friends of the Lenix Family and Starlight Drive-In Theatre to further the awareness of martial arts in the Atlanta area.
The purpose of this fund is to assist those in need and who have a desire to enter the teachings of martial arts. Over the years these students have passed through the martial arts studio and have embraced a positive direction in life. Throughout Mitt's lifetime he personally taught and mentored 100's of students who have entered the doors.
The Lenix family has owned and operated martial arts training schools for over 20 years and have taught many students young and old, self-discipline, inner-peace and respect of human life through the teachings of martial arts.
Currently, the Lenix family martial arts studio is located just south of Atlanta in Stockbridge, Georgia. The school is currently home to over 100 students who attend classes on a daily basis.

The Starlight Drive-In Family is devastated by the senseless and terrible events that took place on the night of May 14th. We do not accept that this is the way our neighborhood or City behaves. We do not accept that one person can hurt so many with a senseless act and we sit by and do nothing.
The Starlight Family of patrons is generations deep, and mightily strong through the love of family, community and tradition. The Starlight has welcomed all walks of life, ages and races since we opened in 1949, and will continue to do so for another 60 years.
Mitt Lenix and the sacrifice he made must be used as a galvanizing force to make this a better City.
A City where things like this, happens to no one.
Thank you for your support.
