facebookIcon2We’ve had a lot of interaction with folks on Facebook lately… including a hooded sweatshirt give-a-way on Wednesday.  If you aren’t part of the conversation, be sure to ‘like’ our page!  We just might make Trivia Wednesday an ongoing theme (complete with prizes!).

 


Black Belt Pre-Test – Save the Date!

Kickboxing Fairfield, CT

Our Black Belt Pre-Test will take place on Saturday May 17th at 12:30pm. 

If you are a current B0-Black student who is ready to test for your Black Belt in June, you MUST report to the school for the Pre-Test.  During this hour-long session, you demonstrate all techniques on the current Black Belt students with whom you’ll be testing.  They will provide detailed feedback on your readiness, and ultimately decide whether or not you are ready to test in June.

Please be sure to save the date.  Good luck to all Black Belt candidates!

It’s been said that “it takes a village” in order to raise a child… and we’re here to support YOUR role as a parent by reinforcing those good behaviors you want to see.

“My son has been taking karate at Stryker Martial Arts for over two years, and the experience has had a positive influence on his self-confidence, self-control and physical well-being.  His self-confidence has shown tremendous growth, as he frequently approaches challenging situations with self-assurance and composure.  … Taking karate has had a beneficial effect on his physical well-being; it’s extremely challenging, provides great exercise, builds muscles, prepares him for other activities, and is always fun!  Thanks for the continued pursuit of excellence in your kids program!  – Michele
