2011 Update So Far

So far 2011 is off to a great start. 

We've teamed up with The Personal Achievement Academy to bring you a new character development program with weekly mat chats and homework missions ... and the monthly homework and newsletter are now being sent out via email.

We've started the "Ticket Contest" with various ways each week for students to earn tickets.

We've hosted a super Parents Night Out and I can only hope that the parents had 1/2 as much fun as the kids!

We gave a Professional School Presentation for the 4th grade class at Thomas Heyward Academy in which we taught the students the "ABC's of Being a Champion in Life" along with some self protection skills.

Next on the agenda is the Kid Safety Course this weekend.  We hope to educate the kids and parents in the community so that we don't end up like the statistics! (Download a copy of the Kid Safety Course booklet & Test)

Financial Peace?

Starting in February, Jim & Lindy Woods will host Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University at Dunamis Karate.  What will you learn in Financial Peace University?

In 13 action-packed lessons, you'll learn how to beat debt, build wealth, find bargains, invest for the future, give like never before, and much more! This information will change your life.

Exciting News for January 2011

We hope your Christmas & New Year were as exciting as ours!  But, the holidays are over now and it’s time to start off the new year right.  We have some new things happening this year that you don’t want to miss.  Read the entire newsletter to find out more!

This month we start our Ticket Contest.  Students will earn tickets during the months of January, February & March each time they do something extra at the school.  In January, tickets can be earned by bringing a friend to class (Jan. 3-6), bringing a friend to the mass intro (Jan. 8), if their friend enrolls after the intro, for wearing a hat to class (Jan. 10-13), for attending the Parent’s Night Out, bring a friend to parent’s night out (Jan. 13), for attending the free Child Safety Course, bringing a friend to the safety course (Jan. 22), and for trying out for the Dunamis Karate Demo Team (Jan. 30).  There will be other ways to earn tickets in Feb. & March.  At the end of March we will draw for various prizes including gift certificates, patches, Hyper T-shirt/DVD, and MORE!

We are excited to introduce a new Character Development Program for all students called the Personal Achievement Academy.  Every month students will receive a Personal Achievement Academy handout.  This is an incredible tool for educating the entire family on important Life Skills.  The hand out has 4 weekly lessons and cool missions for the students to do.  These missions are the key to helping students develop positive life changing success habits.  They are fun and students will earn points for each mission they accomplish.  Students earning 150 points or more will get a stripe on their belt.  The hands outs should be returned during the last week of the month.
