MPK Status Update

Posted on March 13, 2020

Hello MPK Families… just a quick note regarding our schedule as it relates to current events.

We plan to be open for business. We will assess as time goes on and keep our members informed regarding our schedule. Our number one concern is always the health and well being of all our members and will make decisions based on that criteria.

Below is a link to a letter from the Deforest Area School District which offers guidelines for dealing with this event.

While we love seeing all of our students, please do not attend if you are not feeling well. Be sure you are washing your hands regularly and doing your part in keeping our studio as clean as possible. We are cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces as we always do.

Best regards,

Mr. Armstrong, Midwest Professional Karate

Ninja Night! Sat 2/29

Posted on February 20, 2020

We are happy to announce our next Ninja Night (aka, Parents’ Night Out) on Saturday, February 29. Drop off the kids for a few hours of fun and games! MPK will serve pizza and a juice box, so dinner is handled. This is a great way to share MPK with a friend — make it a bring a buddy night, too!

This time, students will be split into two groups based on age:

  • Little Kickers (ages 4-7) will have their Ninja Night from 3-5 pm.
  • Juniors (ages 8 and up) will have their Ninja Night from 6-9 pm.

You can find Ninja Night in the MPK app under the Events section, or:

The first student is $20 and each additional student is $15, so bring a friend! Please let us know if you have any problems signing up, we’d be happy to help.

Save a spot now! We expect to fill up…

And lastly, congratulations to everyone who successfully tested earlier this week!

Belt Testing Week of Feb 17

Posted on February 13, 2020

Just a reminder that we have belt testing at 5:30 pm on Monday the 17th and Wednesday the 19th. We’ll still have Little Kicker class at 5:00 and yoga as scheduled. There will be no karate classes after 5:30 on those days.

  • Students who have all of their colored stripes and required classes will receive a test permission slip.
  • Intermediate students will test on Monday (students who are currently gold, orange, and green belts).
  • Advanced students will test on Wednesday (students who are currently purple, blue, red, and brown belts).

The test will begin promptly after the Little Kicker class, so please plan to arrive 15 minutes early.

Students who are currently blue belt and up will need to bring their sparring gear. We also recommend that they come to sparring class on Tuesday to get in some practice before the test.

No School Monday 2/3

Posted on January 31, 2020

We will be having Open Gym from 5:30 – 7:00 pm on Monday, February 3, since there is no school. This is a good opportunity to work on colored stripes before belt testing on February 17 and 19.

We will still have Little Kicker class at 5:00 pm and Yoga at 6:00 pm as scheduled.

Also, a few reminders about our school in service day camp:

  • Pick up is from 4:00 – 5:30 pm.
