Promotion Ceremony & Exams

Hey Team,

WOW! Just WOW! Such an amazing display of martial art talent and hard work over our rank exam weekend. All students rose to the challenges presented to them, and has overcame the obstacles they faced! With that being said, learning how to kick and punch, and how to defend themselves is fantastic. However, becoming a compassionate, intelligent, genuine, leader with the ability to solve issues through determination, persistance, pride, and humility is our #1 goal. I can't tell you how amazing it is to watch students high five their teammates, or tell them they did a great job, which, we sometimes lose in the hyper competitive society we live in today. I was reading an article last night titled, "The 8 Instinctive Habits of Remarkable Leaders," which stated, "No one gets enough praise, so truly outstanding leaders see expressing thanks, giving praise, and providing recognition as one gift that can never be given often enough. Praise is almost like breathing to a truly outstanding leader: natural, automatic, frequent, and most of all, genuine and sincere." Seeing our students hand out praise to each other, and our young white and yellow belt martial artist looking up to our teenage black belts for guidance and leadership is a truly humbling experience.

We are growing as an academy, thanks to each and every parent and family, and we will continue to impact and change lives. Let's make 2016 the best year ever!


Join us for a night of fun with games, pizza, movies and more at our Parents Night Out event on February 13th from 5:30-9:00PM. We will play games the whole time, eat a ton of pizza, watch a fantastic movie while Parents get to have a date night out on the town. Cost is only $10.00, and you can register securly through the following link: http://member-site.net/?EV--bPcgi


Cycle Documents

Parents,

Please do not forget that on Monday 2/8/2015, we will be moving to our new class schedule. Please see the attached link for the new schedule, most of the classes did not move to much, a few were added to alleviate congestion (which is AWESOME), and to offer a better variety of times to all students.

Please click here to view the new schedule.

We have our missions which all students must complete at least five missions in order to be eligible to test, with more missions earning more stars to be placed on their belt. Please see the attached link to look at the new Leadership missions for the cycle.

Lastly, the attached is the form to have their teacher fill out to earn three stars on their next belt. I know many of you have advocated for me to come into your childs classroom for school talks on our tenets and/or demonstrations. I will be emailing those teachers/principals next week to get something set up.
