Word of the Month
The June 2016 word of the month is MOTIVATION
the general desire or willingness of someone to do something
As Martial Artists its important for you stay motivated even in difficult times. Yes, your training will be hard, there will be days where you want to quit but it is important to never give up! Set your goals for Black Belt and beyond and do your best to remind yourself of this every time you want to give up. When you have your eyes on achieving that Black Belt, quitting is not an option. Push yourself because no one else is going to do it for you.

Summer at SFK
During all of June and July at Surprise Family Karate we will be offering unlimited regular classes to all of our students. Summer Months are a great time to get in extra training so take advantage of all of the classes we offer. Pick up a class schedule at the front desk to see all classes available.
Starting June 1st every day a student attends classes they will receive a raffle ticket to drop in our Raffle Box. Then on August 1st one name will be randomly selected to win an awesome karate gift basket (on display at the studio). The more days you attend classes, the more times your name is entered into the raffle!
We will be closed on Friday, July 1st as Team Surprise will be heading to Las Vegas for the International Martial Arts Festival and Competition.
Our Summer break is Monday, July 4th - Friday, July 8th. Classes resume on Monday, July 11th.
