Master Bailey's Corner
Good Afternoon P3 Team,
We are excited! We have so many amazing students working to prepare for their black belt testing. I want to give a shout out to Macy, Stephen, Olivia, Andrew, Miriam, Caden as they put the final touches on to earn their black belt exams. Wish them luck!!! Please check out the dates at the very bottom of the newsletter, and add them to your calendar. We have event dates into at least September! :)
Don't forget your belt exams are coming up on April 12th & 13th. See below for times and registration links.
The App
As we have been discussing in classes, we know several people have been having trouble with the app, particularly the people in families. We just received approval from Apple and Google to update our apps since they have changed their policies. We will be rolling out our updates to the app over the next week or two. We will email you and post to Facebook once the update is available on both devices.
Contact Us
We offer multiple channels to contact us whenever you need including questions about belt testing, or scheduling a private lesson! If you need anything or have any questions, you can call or text us at 865-272-4853, shoot us an email to P3MartialArts@gmail.com, send us a chat through our mobile app, or send us a message to our Facebook business page at P3 Martial Arts. Typically our business hours are from 10AM-8:30PM and are the best hours to get the quickest response, however, during the hours of 3:30-7:00 we are really busy with classes and the after school program. If you need something during this time, text, email, in app chat, or Facebook message works the best.
Parents we are going to ask a couple housekeeping items:
1.) Please make sure students are attending their appropiate class times. We deliver each class a little differently throughout each program to match cogntive and physical abilities of the age groups. Prechoolers-Kindergarten should attend the Lil' Leader classes. Approved Kindergarteners-5th graders should attend the junior classes. 6th-9th graders should attend the fusion classes, and 10th graders-adult attend the impact classes. We offer a ton of class options for each age group to fit any schedule, so please attend the appropriate time.
2.) If parents leave to run errands during classes they should arrive back to P3 before class ends. We have had situations where a student has been left for 30 minutes after their class ended, and the student was running around the academy. It is distracting to other students, takes away from our staff's attention to the current students, parents, and families in class, and is just disrespectful.
3.) Lastly, please wait for instructors to call the students to the mat before allowng your child onto the training areas. Students should come in and sit in the appropriate areas when the instructor is finished setting up and preparing for their class. Please do not allow your child to run, tumble, and play on training areas not in use.
Thank you for your understanding! We all wake up every morning, and think and work to make P3 an incredible experience everyday!
***A reminder we do not have regular classes Friday 4/12 thru Tuesday 4/16 due to the testing process***

Belt Testing Registration is opening up, and we are excited for another round of awesome students showing their skills and what they have learned this cycle! Please remember students should have at least 4-5 stripes in order to test for their next rank. Private lessons are available just check with an instructor or see the calendar links below.
Lil' Leader students can now select if they wish to test on Friday or Saturday. We have a limited amount of spots available at each time slot so please save your date early.

The schedule for belt testing is as follows:

Friday April 12th: Lil Leader Testing (option 1/limit 20) at 5:00PM Fusion & Adult Testing at 6:00PM Black Belt Testing at 7:15PM. Saturday April 13th: Lil' Leader Testing (option 2/limit 20) at 8:00am Junior Blue, Purple, Brown, & Red at 9:00am Junior White & Yellow at 10:15am Junior Orange & Green at 11:15am

You can register for belt testing here: https://sparkpages.io/?i=Tuc

A couple of  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.

Black Belts! Reminder to finish getting your midterm this week. We are quickly filling up and still have a lot of black belts without their midterm! Make sure to grab one with an instructor one degree higher than you here:

Our March Madness challenges are officially under way! What is March Madness you say? Every year we challenge everyone to see which team is the best! All students have been divided up into 3 different teams; Red, Blue, and Silver. At the end of every class, a student can complete one of the challenges on the board. Doing so will earn your team points and get you one step closer to victory!

Vertical Jump: jump straight up and touch a certain level based on how tall they are. Red vs. Blue vs. Silver: these are at will points. If a student does something super awesome during classes, then they may earn their team a point! 30 Second Rings: hold the gymnastic rings we have in the back, and hold their arms and knees up for 30 seconds straight without lowering them. #MartialArtsMondays: wear your P3 Martial Arts shirt to school or work on Monday, take a picture, post to Facebook and tag us! Boom! Free points for your team! 30 Second Balance: balance on one foot on our balance ball 1 Minute Plank: hold a plank for 1 minute Martial Art History: write a 1 page paper about the history of martial arts (p.s. this category is worth the most points!) 10 Spins in 10 Seconds: complete 10 spin kicks in under 10 seconds 30 Sit Ups in 30 Seconds: complete 30 sit ups in 30 seconds 1 Minute Bag Striking: kick and punch the heavy bag for 1 minute without stopping Split Club: complete a front split 60 Round Kicks in 1 Minute: complete 60 round kicks in 1 minute without missing.

We will be hosting a board breaking clinic for our whole academy, right after belt testing!

On April 18th, during regular classes, we will be breaking real wood. Registration for this event is now open and you can order how much wood you want here:

Boards for Lil' Leaders are $3.00 each.

Boards for Juniors, Fusion, and Impact are $3.50 each. A minimum of 3 boards is required to register. We will go over how to break each technique properly, and break down not only our physical barriers, but our mental ones too!

Don't miss this once a year event!
