Here is some information and updates on what’s going on here at MPK.
- Belt Promotion Test – There will be no regular classes except Total Fitness Training on Saturday, October 21, so we can hold a belt promotion test for those testing for Gold Stripe through Brown Stripe belts. You still have a couple of weeks to meet your class requirements and earn any stripes you need to qualify for the test. For those testing, please arrive by 9:15 to get warmed up for a 9:30 start, and don’t forget your full uniform. Families are welcome to attend and cheer these students on.
- Super Sunday – We will have a Black Belt training session on Sunday evening, October 22, from 5:30 to 7pm. This is open to all Brown and Black Belts. For those of you who have come to other Super Sundays, please note the new 5:30pm start time. There will be a yoga class running from 4:30 to 5:30, so please come in and go to the red mats to warm up quietly until that class is done.
- Karate Camp – We will be running an all-day Karate Camp on Thursday, November 9 (no-school day for Deforest/Windsor). Camp is open to all kids in Kindergarten or older. Drop off is 7:30-8 a.m. with an 8:00 start time, and pick up is 4:00 pm. Students should bring a lunch and snack and wear their uniforms and belts – A+ After School kids can change into uniform when they arrive. We’ll have a variety of martial arts activities and games throughout the day. Cost for the camp is $40 for the first student, and $32 each for siblings. Space is limited and students will be enrolled on a first come first served basis – there are 20 spots still open. Sign up at the front desk soon if you’re interested. We will have three additional camps on no-school days on Jan 15, Feb 5, and Apr 16, 2018.
- AutoPay – We have our automatic payments set up and running for credit and debit cards. If you pay monthly, we encourage you to take advantage of this easy payment method. You can set up your credit card information in the MPK portal, and we just need a signed authorization to get it started (we are not yet able to ACH payments, but that will be coming).
See you in class!
