Take more than a moment to share your appreciation and love to all the Mothers in your life. Moms, Grandmothers and all the strong women who provide support, love and inspiration to you and your family throughout the year. Pick up a pretty card and gift it with an indulgent fragrance, luxurious lotion or colorful piece of jewelry. Nothing shows your affection more than the gift of health so give her some sacred “me” time with a personal training session & some new workout wear! (PS: Don’t procrastinate!)
BLACK BELT CLUB
Seminar schedule for our Black Belt Club members. For more on Black Belt Club, please see the front desk.
All BBC members meet for the Fridays listed below at 7:15pm for 1 hour
5/17 - Nunchaku and/or Staff (depending on belt level)
6/28 - TBA
Most of you have already had the pleasure of meeting Coach Chris, but we wanted to extend a warm welcome to him! He has an extensive Wushu background in both competition and training, and was on the professional team in Tianjing, China. Please join us as we welcome him to our Studio Kicks family!
STARS AND STRIPES
Parents: Please be sure to securely iron on the stars to the uniform lapel and the stripes to the belts. Although they do iron on with high heat, we suggest you add a stitch or two to ensure they are securely attached. Students work hard and are so proud to show off their accomplishments so it is frustrating for them when they are lost or fall off, thank you!
SUMMER CAMP 2013: JUNE 17-21 (10:30AM - 3PM FOR KIDS AGES 4-12)
Our coaches are already beginning to prepare the curriculum and skills taught at these sessions so if you are interested in taking advantage of these training sessions please sign up before our roster is filled! Our energy filled Summer Camp balances intensive training sessions with lots of fun, fitness and laughter and students eagerly look forward to this unique training opportunity every Summer! It’s a great opportunity to advance and improve skills while focusing on weapons training, flexibility, and balance - all while having a ton of fun and cultivating wonderful friendships! Students will enjoy the fresh air and sunshine (many of our training sessions will be outside), engage their inner artist through creative arts and crafts, all while burning off that extra physical and mental energy in a positive structured environment! Our schedule only allows one session this Summer so make sure to reserve your spot!
MAY’S MONTHLY THEME FOR CHILDRENS MARTIAL ARTS: GRATITUDE
Our theme this month will be Gratitude, just in time for Mother’s Day! We will encourage students to share the different types of ways we can show our gratitude and how we should be grateful for so many blessings in our lives - including Wushu!
GONNA MAKE YOU SWEAT
We LOVE it when you sweat! As disturbing as it sounds, nothing brings more satisfaction to our instructors then to see you training hard and pushing yourselves to do more than you ever imagined! With all this hard work, usually comes a lot of sweat. Please be considerate to those around you as well as to folks attending the next class: please clean up your sweat on the mats, the bags, bars or wherever your hard work as dripped onto, thank you! Swiffers and disinfectant wipes are available by the stage beneath the mirrors so please be respectful and do your part to keep the area clean and dry for everyone!
P.A. MAY FETE PARADE: SATURDAY MAY 4TH (NO MARTIAL ARTS THIS DAY ONLY. ALL CARDIO REGULAR SCHEDULE)
Please sign up at the front desk if you will be participating. As soon as we receive our staging number we will share that information. This is a fabulous family event, and the kids have a blast showing off their stuff while getting in a great workout in the fresh air! We’ll need performers & volunteers from the Cardio and Teen/Adult Wushu class as well, so please inform the front desk if you are available!
Please note: NO MARTIAL ARTS THIS DAY ONLY. All Cardio Regular Schedule
