We Have New White Belt Students!
Welcome to Dojo Fairfield!
If you know someone who could benefit from training in the martial arts, bring them in for a class! The easiest way to refer a student and transform a life, is to simply bring them in as a buddy. Call (203) 319-9989, or email us today for more information!
Three new students have been accepted onto our Black Belt Club program!
Our Black Belt Club program is invitation-only, and allows students to increase their participation and martial arts know-how by engaging in our BBC curriculum. Are you ready to join in on the fun? Ask an instructor about BBC today!
“This class is more than a kickboxing program – it is an art. It brings your mind and body together as you gain strength, power and agility. A true rush!” – Jasmine R.
Bo-Black Karate Students – Change in Testing Procedures
Beginning next month, we will have a change in testing procedures for our Bo-Black karate students.
Currently, Bo-Black belts receive their stripe during the last week of the month – assuming they have attained all required classes. Starting in March, Bo-Black students will attend the regularly scheduled test, on Thursday evening.
During the test, they will be required to demonstrate a specific technique that is part of the Black Belt curriculum. This technique will be thoroughly practiced throughout the month during regular classes, and in the Wednesday Black Belt Techniques class.
We look forward to having our Bo-Black leaders back on the mat during testing!
Enhanced BBC Padded Weapons Curriculum
It’s hard to believe that we’ve been using escrima sticks in our BBC program for over a year! While a great form of defense, we’ve noticed that this repetition is getting a little stale for our older BBC’ers, so we’ve decided to change it up.
Beginning in April, we are enhancing our Black Belt Club padded weapons curriculum to include (but not restricted to) nunchakus, kamas, escrima sticks, sai, and bo-staff. We are excited to increase the knowledge-base that we’re providing our students, and are looking forward to re-energizing the classes.
In April, we will be transitioning to Nunchakus!
Nunchakus have been ordered, and will arrive in Mid-March. They cost $10 each. Be sure to see a staff member in order to ensure that your child is prepared for this exciting change!
Re-Cap of Our February Events
We had an AWESOME time during our two February events – our Valentine’s Day Parent’s Night Out event on Saturday February 14th, and our Reiki Seminar on February 22nd.
THANK YOU to everyone who participated, and to Reiki Master Leila Amani Marrash, who ran an amazing seminar!
Stay tuned – as we will be be adding new events to our roster soon!
Cage Fitness is now a Full-Time Program!
We are thrilled with the response that our January Cage Fitness Sprint has generated, and are happy to announce that Cage Fitness will be a full time program at Dojo Fairfield!
Since there is no knowledge base that is required, nor any ranking system, we are able to provide a variety of options for participation – from drop-in’s, to class packs (10 classes or 30 classes), or a monthly tuition. (And we have a SIGNIFICANT discount for current kickboxing students.)
Be sure to drop in for a class to see for yourself why our “Ragin’ Cager’s” keep coming back for more!
Help Support the Fairfield Public Library!
This Sunday we’re happy to support the Fairfield Woods Branch of the Fairfield Public Library, as they host their annual Mini Golf Extravaganza!
Be sure to look out for the Dojo Fairfield sponsored hole, and try your luck at mastering this fun mini golf course through the library. The cost for participation is $5 per person, or $20 per family.
