AMA Newsletter – March 2022
Welcome all new Students!
Spring is in the air!
The Pulse Academy member app is working well and new videos are being added monthly. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, please let Mr. Deaver know and he can direct you to the process
TEST WEEK! As you know this week on Wednesday or Thursday students will be testing for the next level in the program they are in. Parent’s are welcome to come in to the room and attend, take pictures, videos etc. We try our best to get the best out of each and everyone, one of the ways we can do this is remind them that TEST DAY is the day to show parents and family members what we have learned. OUR ACTUAL TEST DAY IS EVERY DAY IN CLASS! This way we hopefully get the very best from them at each and every class. See you this week in class.
PROMOTIONS: NOTE: MAY BE DELAYED DUE TO NATION WIDE SHIPPING DELAYS! Standard shipping is now 7 – 12 days instead of 2 – 5.
Students, when Belts, Tags, Certificates, Shirts etc. arrive, we will have them on 2 Large White Tables in the parent area. You may pick them up before or after class, again timing will depend on shipping.
Stripe testing for Youth (Martial Arts) Tae Kwon Do (6-11 Yr. Old’s) 1 stripe is awarded every 2 – 3 weeks as students learn requirements for that cycle and the stripe is earned the 3rd or 4th week during class time. After the students earn 3 stripes they are ready to break a board in class for parents. Then the next week they will promote to the next level. As above, Belts and Certificates will available via a table in the parent area.
The Academy will be closed all day for regular programming Saturday April 9th for our Annual Hapkido Seminar. Please plan ahead. Anyone interested may attend, this seminar is open to all students 12 & up, parents, etc
