    Fall Notes

    Posted on September 22, 2012

    Just a couple things to note as we get back into the flow of fall and the start of the school year. Classes have been busy and energetic here at the studio as we are preparing for testing which is less than a month away — October 15th through the 18th are final evaluations with graduation on Thursday the 19th. Please make room on your calendars for this week and be sure you have all your classes in. You need a minimum of 40 to graduate to your next belt. Red belts need 80.

    Saturday the 29th of September WE WILL NOT HAVE CLASS. Our Black Belt Team will be in Minneapolis for a training seminar. This will be an awesome trip and we hope to bring back some great information to add to our program.

    The last note for the day has to do with the waiting area. Please try and keep noise to a minimum as well as monitor small siblings. Due to the acoustics in the studio, it can be very noisy and that makes it difficult for students to hear instructions. Your instructors will really appreciate your cooperation. Thanks!
