October’s Monthly Theme for Childrens Martial Arts: COLLABORATE

Our theme this month will be COLLABORATE. It seems fitting as we get together to collaborate for our upcoming Showcase! Remember to ask your child other ways they can collaborate with others!


Parking Reminder

Just a note to our new members regarding our parking. Please enter IN the back lot along the alley that runs between the studio & mechanic and exit OUT the alley along Buckles-Smith. Please DO NOT PARK in front of our neighbors (electrical company & mechanic) AT ANY TIME WEEKDAYS from 8am-5pm! We take great effort to respect our neighbors so please be warned that your vehicle may be towed! Parking in front of our side of the building, anywhere in the back lot or street parking (just around the corner on Leghorn or San Antonio) is permitted at all times. Also, please do not park along the sidewalk or in the “alleys” on either side of the building. Thank you for helping us maintain a safe environment for everyone and their vehicles!

The Legacy Award

This year’s Studio Showcase performance will be extra special as it is the first year we will be awarding two students (one from the kids and one from Teen/Adult) and one staff member the Legacy Award. This award will be in honor and remembrance of Mr. Branden and we invite everyone to submit their nominations via email or in an envelope that will be held at the front desk. Submissions should state the name of the nominee and why they feel that person is deserving of the nomination, in addition to the name of the person submitting the nomination. Some of the criteria for student nominees: Represents the studio with pride, integrity, honor and respect. Involved and committed in SK events as well as in class, encouraging, kind and supportive of peers, demonstrates leadership and respectful of all SK staff. Regardless of skill level or natural ability, always tries their best and perserveres - giving up is not an option.
