Have you always wanted to do something but never did... like earn a black belt, place in a big tournament, or go for that big job promotion? When you try, do you sometimes fail?
We all share these common fears! That's good news!
Goals can also be thought of as dreams with a deadline. Sure, it is easy to set a goal. And it might be easy to share your goal. But when you put a date on the goal, you add a level of accountability to yourself. Hopefully, too, by sharing your goals others can help you obtain them!
My goals for Lakes Martial Arts for this session is to have 90% of my students test for their next belt on April 17. That's going to be a ton of work, but I know the students (and parents) will love the results! With the tournament on March 30, we will have lots to look forward to!
Down to details. Here are the requirements for testing:
Forms and One-Steps (Click on bold to download .pdf)
Beginners >> Sohngham 3 Tiny Tigers do first half of form (moves 1-14) and one-step #1. Karate Kids complete entire form and both one-steps.
Intermediate & Advanced >> In Wha 2. Karate Kids and adults must complete entire form (beginners must also demonstrate both one-steps).
Board Break: Intermediate and Advanced students must break board with a step-together #1 jump front kick (like in the form)
Parent Stripe Sheet (Goals) >> Students must work on specifics goals for 3 weeks to earn gold stripe on their belt.
Smart Sheet info >> Just in case parents would like to continue this.

To help prepare for the tournament, we will have a FREE tournament prep class on Saturday, March 23 from 1 - 3pm at Pershing Park. Students are highly recommended to attend.
