Congrats to Mikey S. on his Junior Black Belt. Thanks to all my instructors who helped train Mike and put in their time and effort to help such a fine young man. Congrats to Mike's parents on this achievement and for raising such a wonderful son. This is an especially exciting day for me as well, as it is the first black belt given out in our new system/style.
We can't wait for our first Junior Black Belt Test. We're all set. Good Luck Mike and get some rest.
I would just like to thank Ethel McKnight PTA for inviting me to your Family Fun Fitness Fair. I had a blast conducting the mini classes and breaking the boards in the demo. And all the kids did great breaking the re-breakable board!!
Thank you to all the new friends I met, can't wait to see you at your free trial!
For the first time at CMB we had ten people in the adults class and had to do two lines!! Very exciting for us! Good things are happening at CMB Karate!
It's back to school time. Here at CMB we pride ourselves on well rounded students. This translates to good students in the dojo, and in school. This week at the dojo we are handing out "10 ways to earn better grades."
1. Look at your teachers when they are talking.
2. Think about what you teacher is saying.
3. Sit in a listening position.
4. Do class work during class time.
5. Ask question when you do no understand.
6. Answer questions in class.
7. Complete homework accuretely and on time.
8. Study for tests.
9. Ask a parent to quiz you for your tests.
We wish all of our students good luck in the upcoming school year. Remember we want to check your grades at the end of each quarter.
Also remember that Mrs. Cathy and I are both teachers and are very willing to help anyone with questions on their homework/schoolwork. Have Fun!
