What’s Up Monday – June 3, 2019
Hey SDMA family, it is time for another episode of What’s Up Monday, Today is June 3, and we are three weeks from belt testing. So we’ve got several things to get through today to make sure you know what’s going to be going on at the karate school this week.
First and foremost, Stripes, your ninja should have two black stripes to blue stripes and their yellow stripe. So noticing that there are a lot of yellow stripes missing. what that was, that was the goal that you set for your ninja back at the last belt testing. Once they’ve completed that goal, let us know so we can get that yellow stripe. If you don’t happen to remember what that goal was set a new one, get your ninja through it this week, so that way they’ll be able to earn that yellow stripe, because again, with three weeks away, they’ll test it’s going to be coming up pretty quick.
Also, you need to have 13 class credits, so making sure that you’re attending your regular classes so that you get your class credits in. So therefore you’re going to be eligible for the testing coming up.
With a nice warm weather. Now we’re also wearing t shirts, so SDMA T-shirts instead of your uniformare part of the summer uniform until Labor Day. So as you can see the communication shirts if you preorder, those have come in and are available for pickup. And we have a couple of extras that we can have in stock as well. If you are an Android user, you’re going to notice that the retail section of the store is now right inside the app. And for Apple users, we’re still waiting for Apple to approve the app update. And so until then, let me know if you contact me either text message, Facebook, or email, I can send you the link so you can use your web browser to make the same purchases until it shows up inside the app.
We also started our new triangulation drills for leadership training, having the kids leads to other teammates through some of the different drills in class. As with anything brand new, it was a little bit rough last week, because the kids were just starting to learn the concept. But keeping in mind what the end goal is, is getting your child to be able to speak in front of people and lead a small group, it’s going to be a phenomenal skill that they’re going to start to work on and develop. So I’m really excited to see the results in the upcoming months as we continue to practice and work on those.
Finally, Friday classes have started. So remember, we’ve got an extra day now of training. So if you miss any classes or if you want an extra day of training, you’ve got Friday night is available as well. So for the current update and latest schedule, again, you can go right inside the DSK Troy app and hit the little three menu bar and check on schedule. It will show you exact class times for your specific age group.
Speaking of a lot of classes are a lot of parents, we’ve got about a dozen different families taking advantage of our swapping schedule. The way to think about the schedule now is your ninja is welcome to come to a lower age, class time and including their own so a seven to nine year old can come at 545 or at five o’clock, right at the same time we are flipping it to that degree of five or six year old can move up to the seven to nine year old class. Speaking of now the older kids the 10 to 14 year olds can come at their time, the seven to nine or the five and six so that way you’ve got three classes per day to choose from. Again, we’ve got about a dozen families taking advantage of that. They have different age kids. So now they’re able to be in the same class time saving them time. Or maybe you get home from work a little bit late. It’s not that you have to miss karate, the day is or the next class time is now available. Again, if it doesn’t make sense, or if you’re a little bit confused, feel free to stop in, let me know ask me a question about it. And I’ll walk you through exactly how that’s going to work. So looking forward to some another week of awesome classes.
Have a super day we’re going to go enjoy the sunshine. And we’ll see you guys tonight in class. Take care!
