Tomorrow, Saturday, September 21 we will have open gym from 9-10:30 am instead instead of regular martial arts classes. Students in the weapons rotation can still come in and work on bokken as part of open gym.
This is a great opportunity to work on colored stripes before belt testing next month! We will still have yoga class as scheduled.

With the start of the school year, our class attendance has jumped back up and we’d like to ask that all students try to attend the classes that are designated for their belt rank. Our classes are set up to deliver curriculum for White through Green Belts in the 5:30pm class and the advanced material for Purple through Brown Belts at 6:15pm. Our Black Belt Master’s class is also in the 6:15pm time slot.
Attending the rank-appropriate class helps ensure that each student gets the attention and material they need to progress to the next level and that the staff is able to focus on those specific ranks in each class. While our advanced students are welcome to drop in to the 5:30 class and can get a good workout in, they won’t be getting their own curriculum in that time slot, and we’d hate to see any of our students not getting what they need to be able to earn their stripes and test for their next belts.
As a reminder, our Saturday morning class is open to all ages and ranks at 9:45am. Thanks — have a great week!

We have belt testing this week, so our schedule will be different on Monday and Wednesday. Tuesday and Thursday we will keep to our regular schedule.
On Monday, we will have Little Kicker class at 5:00 pm. The Intermediate belt test (students testing for purple belt and below) will start at 5:30 pm.
On Wednesday, we will not have Little Kicker class. The Advanced belt test (students testing for blue belt and above) will start at 5:30 pm. Students testing for red belt and above will need to bring their sparring gear, and everyone needs to be in full uniform.
We will still have yoga class on Monday and Wednesday.
Just a reminder that there are only 16 spots left for our A+ After School Program before we reach the program’s maximum capacity! Registration for the two-day option is now closed — but the three-day and full time (4-5 day) options are still open.
