Belt Testing

Congratulations to everyone who recently passed their belt testing and was promoted in rank.  
The next test will be on SATURDAY, June 9th.  

Mark your calendar now so you don't miss this!! It will be the last one until after summer. This will be the first time we've held a Saturday test, but the quantity of students is making it necessary to have a separate day for evaluating everyone. More information about the test will be available as the time approaches.

TEAM Tournament

We are looking for students who would like to compete as part of a TEAM.  

Master Alice McCleary is hosting a Region 7 Team Tournament at her school in Powder Springs, GA on June 2nd. This event will be for teams of 3 to compete in traditional forms and/or weapons and open forms and/or weapons. There will also be competition for small demo teams (3-5 people) and large demo teams (6-15 people). There will also be point sparring when students will earn points for their school for each win. This promises to be a super fun event and a great opportunity to compete together with other friends from our school.  

The cost to compete is extremely low. The biggest expense will be travel to/from the event. If you are interested in participating in this event, see Mrs. Woods ASAP so we can start putting teams of 3 together and practicing for the event.

Summer Plans

Our summer schedule will go into effect on June 11th. We will be cutting back to two days a week and adding morning classes for convenience.

Any parent wanting to take advantage of the morning classes may also want to take advantage of the morning Cage Fitness class. You can work out at 8:30, then your child can workout immediately after.

We are running a summer special for Cage Fitness - only $99 for the 8-10 weeks of summer. This includes the T-shirt & gloves ... that's a savings of $50!  If you want more info, see Mrs. Woods or Mrs. Allison!
