Weekly Update: 6/24-6/29

This week is on regular schedule, Mon, Wed, Thurs, and Fri. **IMPORTANT** June 29th has been cancelled for a Mason event. NO CLASS SAT. Friday night is pizza night! $5/person, family members are welcome to partake.

Results from this week’s test will be announced next week. Good job, testers!

The Sensational Spring Cleaning Sale is on with plenty of discounted goodies. Please fill out a survey regarding class times at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XGNR3Y8 if you haven’t already. July calendars will be available shortly.

August 12-16 is Summer Camp!~! This year’s camp is going to be very exciting, and is the first time we’ll be opening it up to the public!! Check out the details or sign up in class.

Rule Reminder: Lower ranked students must address black belts by their title and then their name. “Sabumnim,” “Sensei,” “Kyobumnim,” “Sempai,” “Yudanjanim,” “Bojanim,” and “Instructor” are all titles. If you are unsure about how to address someone, listen to how others in the school address that black belt.

Summer Bingo is in progress and several squares on the group board have already been crossed off! Get your own personal board in class and start playing. When you get an individual bingo, bring it in and we’ll let you lead 5-10 minutes of warmups that day. Get another bingo? Same thing!

When the class gets a bingo, the instructors will bring ice cream! Summer Bingo runs through August, so have fun in the sun and come to class!

Weekly Challenge: Look for a small adjustment to make and really focus on it this week. Everything counts: from making sure your heel is grounded during front stances and front kicks, to stronger pulling hand, to straightening your wrist, etc etc etc. If you need a pointer, ask a black belt!

Now that the weather is nice, please wear or bring shoes you can run in, as we sometimes go outside for a jog or warm-up games.

We welcome feedback on our website and our teaching! Feel free to email us if you have a comment or question.
