Here’s your Weekly News for January 19-25
1. Where are we?
This week we start Red Cycle. Our progression to our next belt starts now! Red stripe shows that you can demonstrate the designated combination of kicks that is needed for your belt level. If you want to know what how you can help your child out at home, just ask.
Remember: stripes, as well as belts, are earned through hard work and effort. Therefore, they can be lost by lack of effort and/or disobedient behavior. Students are responsible for their progression and held accountable. Every day they make a promise to have respect, give their best effort, and have courtesy. I hold them to that promise.
