We Heart Martial Arts
Holy smokes, January is over already?! I guess all that goal-setting and hard work really made the time fly. But we're not done yet! Take a look at what's coming up this month at the Dojo.
This Friday (2/3) at 6:00 pm is the Teen/Adult Belt Test. There will be no Teens or Adult Kempo group class this Friday. If you're scheduled to test this time around, you'll receive an email later this week with reminders and all pertinent information.
The Kids Belt Test this this Saturday (2/4) at 12:30 pm. The Lil Dragons (10:30 am) and Juniors (11:30 am) group classes, as well as all private lessons will remain on regular schedule.
*** Important! ***
Beginning on Friday, February 10th, we'll be moving our Saturday Kids group classes to Friday evenings. Many of our students are enrolled in other sports, and many of those other sports have games and tournaments on Saturday mornings which has made it hard for students to attend class on those days. After speaking with students and parents, we feel that moving group classes to Fridays will make it easier for students to attend more classes per week. The Dojo will remain open on Saturdays for private lessons and events (Belt Tests, tournaments, etc.), but the group class schedule will now be less complicated with all of our group training taking place on Monday, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Please take a moment to review the 2017 Group Class schedule below:
Also coming up on Friday, 2/10 is registration for Ninja Camp 2017! We'll be rolling out all of the details over the next couple weeks, but this year's camp (which will take place Wednesday, August 2nd through Friday, August 4th, 8:00 am to noon) will not only focus on Anti-bullying and "Stranger Danger" self-defense; this year we'll also be making another "Martial Arts action movie"! It'll be tons of fun, a great bonding experience for all campers (non-students are welcome and encouraged to join us), and on top of it all, they'll learn some vital skills that could end up saving their lives one day. Early-Bird Registration begins Friday 2/10 and runs until 2/17. After that, registration will open to the general public.
Congratulations to our January Student of the Month, Wyatt T.! Great work earning the first Student of the Month of 2017, Wyatt! (photo coming soon!)
Happy Valentine's Day! The Dojo will remain open and on regular schedule on Tuesday, February 14th. You can still bring chocolate for the Instructors... If you insist ;)
As for Presidents Day weekend (2/10~2/20), the Dojo will remain open and on regular schedule. If you plan to be out of town, please let your instructors know ahead of time so we can reschedule any missed private lessons with you for a more convenient time.
Last, but definitely not least... Just because January is over doesn't mean it's time to take your eye off of your Dojo Goals! Check out our #DojoGoals Challenge on Instagram and stay focused on achieving! Tag @ussdsc and use the hashtag #DojoGoals to show and tell us what your goals are to help you become a better Martial Artists in 2017! We'll repost our favorite ones!
