Happy New Year
Welcome back to classes at SFK! We are very excited to start a new year at SFK and look forward to all the exciting events we have coming up!
Word of the Month
The January 2017 Word of the month is MOTIVATION
The reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.
What motivates you? As martial artists it is important to stay motivated about your training at all times. There may be skills we struggle with along the way but it is the true black belt that overcomes those challenges and stays motivated on their journey to Black Belt Excellence! So what motivates you; is it learning new skills, testing for a new belt, winning a trophy? We will be talking about Motivation all month long so be sure to let us know.
Student of the Week
Each week of January, one student will be chosen to receive Student of the Week. We are looking for the student that comes to class with a positive attitude, works hard, and sets a great example.
Starting this month students will begin learning sai. If you have ever thought about trying weapons, now is a great time to start. Please speak with Mr. James if you have any questions.
Congratulations to everyone that was promoted to their next rank at our December Belt Testing! Our next testing is scheduled for March 18th at 10am.
