Our community Kiwanis Club is leading the effort to replace worn-out playground equipment at Oak Mountain Elementary School.  Life Martial Arts Center, on behalf of everyone in our school, is proud to contribute to this effort.

In additiBoy Chops Pancakeson to donating $250 as a Silver Sponsor, we are providing two coupons for new students worth $304 each, for the fundraiser's Silent Auction. Every penny from all sponsors and all Auction winning bids goes directly to the playground effort.

I have fond memories of eating Kiwanis pancakes with my family as a kid.  I encourage all our LMAC families to participate in this.  Our auction packages are also a great opportunity for friends who may be interested in martial arts classes to both donate to a great cause and join a wonderful group of people learning Tang Soo Do and growing together!

It's time for a Gup Rank Exam again.  Students have been working diligently to polish requirements.

Here's the eligible student list invitation, with the link for fee payment of $40 per exam at the bottom.

This quick-read article explains why we do some of the different, "crazy" things we do.  It's much more than, for example, changing the way we practice a hyung to keep it from being boring (the common reason I hear for changing it up.  I never change for boredom.)  I approach things differently simply to help us engage in our training and deepen our understanding of the cool things we're learning.

So, when designing an exercise think about how your approach might positively affect you and your students' learning.  When evaluating results, did your idea work the way you thought it would?  Did the class understand and grow toward your purpose?

Remember, your goal and purpose might be for one exercise or an entire class.  But don't stop there.  How about when hosting a clinic?  Strategies for growing toward a purpose might be planned for a month, for several months to the next successful belt rank exam.

To meet their goals and purpose, the best schools plan their curriculum for the entire year!

When planning your classes, how do you align your exercises with our school's purpose?

Good Sunday afternoon, everyone.

Here's a list of some recent changes in the LMAC MyStudio phone app.  Let me know what you'd like to see included on it.

 

MyStudio PHONE APP

 

MyStudio ScreenShot BottomTabs

In the [SHOP] tab at the bottom:

 

MyStudio ScreenShot CurriculumMaterials

-  Under "Curriculum Materials":   Gup and Dan manuals can be purchased in the app.  Every student receives a Gup manual when they join the WTSDA as a white (or Orange) belt.  And they receive a Dan manual when they earn First Degree Black Belt.  If you loose yours...

 

MyStudio ScreenShot PatchesTrim

-  Under "Patches, Trim":   Fabric for dobohk trim can be purchased in the app.  When a student earns solid green, brown or red belt, they receive trim for one dobohk.  Gup and Dan uniform fabric can be purchased when dressing out extra uniforms.

 

MyStudio ScreenShot Sewing

-  Under "Sewing":   Sewing of patches and trim can now be ordered through the app.  Hemming of uniform sleeves and pants can also be ordered.

 

 Tang Soo!

Good Sunday afternoon, everyone.

This week's schedule:

  • Tuesday 7/2  -  regular classes
  • Thursday 7/4  -  NO CLASS
  • Saturday 7/27 - 4:00-5:30pm  -  gup rank exam, all students

After speaking with several people, most everybody will be spending time with family Thursday.  As it should be.

We will begin summer extra classes soon, working on a schedule now.  A lot is going on with gup rank exams and tournament soon after.  And that Black Belt exam coming up in September...

Speaking of gup rank exams, after evaluating everyone in this past week's classes I believe everyone is ready.  Separate emails will go out for that later.  Saturday, July 27th, 4:00-5:30pm, is the schedule.  The exam process will be tightly scheduled with younger and lower ranks finishing first, and higher ranks continuing through their requirments.

 Tang Soo!
