P3 Martial Arts E-Newsletter August

Mr. Bailey's Corner

Hey Team! We are super excited to have almost 32 new students coming off of summer, or starting after belt testing. Please be sure to welcome them to our P3 Martial Arts family.

After belt testing, we want to remind everyone that it is a requirement to train in proper uniform. Students should only train in the P3 uniform dresscode i.e. P3 Jackets, P3 Training Shirts, P3 training shorts, or P3 training pants, and includes their belt. After belt testing, students not in proper apparel will not be allowed to train in class. We will have to take a hard stance on the issue and it will be difficult for some students & parents, but again it is important for maintaining structure & discipline in the martial arts.

Lastly, we are currently in the process of transitioning to a more modern and updated software program. Parents have already loved being able to book private lessons online, and we will be rolling out more features over the coming months to make the experience at P3 Martial Arts continue to be top notch. Stay tuned!

***A reminder we do not have regular classes this Friday (8/24-8/28) thru Tuesday due to the testing process***

Belt Testing Registration is winding down, and the effort and intensity levels is ramping up in classes to get ready for belt testing.

A couple of last minute reminders before the exams start.

1.) Please make sure all students arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their start exam.

2.) All students should be in full uniform (White/Black Jacket, Black P3 Martial Art Pants, and belt). Orange belt and higher should have all of their sparring gear (elbow pads, headgear, footgear, hand pads, shin pads, groin protector, and mouthpiece).

3.) Please make sure if you arrive as another exam is in progress, that students stay quiet and seated with you in the lobby or wait outside so they do not interrupt the exam process.

4.) Orange Belts & Higher should know the 5 rules of sparring:

     1.) Keep my hands in guard

     2.) Stay Busy

     3.) Be an effective blocker

     4.) Use my sparring flows

     5.) Do an advanced technique every 5 seconds

5.) Students attendance score will be taken into account for their belt exam this cycle. We will only use the check in's from the ipads to give them their attendance score.

6.) Lil' Leader, Junior, and Fusion (teenager) students will also receive part of their grade from the parents this time for cleaning their room this week.
