Central Karate parents & students:
We wanted to take a moment to say KO MAP SUM NI DA (thank you 😊), to all of you as we adjust and adapt to our huge influx or students. To our existing students, thank you for being patient, kind, and understanding. A special thank you to all of the students who have been coming to help out or have just made our new students feel welcome!
To our new students, we just don’t have the words to tell you how wonderful you all are. We are so excited that you’ve chosen to be a part of the Central Karate family. Your patience, kindness, and understanding is not overlooked! We are excited for you to take this journey with us and our existing students are cheering you on!
Big things are coming!🥋👊🥰
We know the Summer months bring new challenges with schedules, planning, and activities… BUT… we are reminding everyone to make KARATE ATTENDANCE A PRIORITY! All students should strive to attend a MINIMUM of two classes per week. If you can attend more, even better!
We will strictly enforce our Attendance Policy for this testing and all testings going forward. White Belts do not have an attendance minimum. Yellow, Orange, and Green Belts must have a minimum of 16 classes in order to be eligible for testing. Red, Blue, and Black Belts must have a minimum of 32 classes to be eligible for testing.
If you need to check how many classes you’ve been to, you can log into your Kicksite account and see it there or you can check the ipad next time you sign in for class.
