CHANGES To Kickboxing Schedule!

We’ve changed the schedule – which will only affect our kickboxing and Thai students.  We have added kickboxing classes Thursday and Friday at 7pm, as well as Saturday morning at 8:30am.

Our 6pm Black Belt Class will no longer be on the schedule.  Instead, our students progressing in rank will learn their forms and advanced techniques in our regularly scheduled BBC class, which follows the am/pm Thai class.

Karate News

With our kids, we’re working on setting a good example, and being a good leader.  Some examples include, not talking during class (at school, and on the mat), paying attention to the teachers’ directions, and following the rules, even if friends aren’t doing so.  Our feedback has been great, and we’re pleased to see that our students are developing the leadership skills which will take them far in life!

Thai News

Elbows, elbows, elbows.  We’re throwing em!  Get to class and perfect this very effective move.

September Testing

Our next test is Thursday September 26th.  There will be no regularly scheduled classes on testing day.  Our Karate test will begin at 6pm, and the kickboxing test will begin at 7:15pm.
