Good news

There may be some official good news coming up! I’ll post it tomorrow when everything is final.


Watch the skies…

Class is still on! It is raining, so bring your weapons for some weapon training. If we see lightning, class will immediately be cancelled.


It’s warm enough to go crazy on our challenges. Ropes, the wall, and maybe a race or two this weekend.

Friday we will work on sparring and maybe some goal setting for Saturday and sunday. Black belts, you can still set goals for yourself. But feel free to help lower ranks too.

I might have good news (fingers crossed) but I won’t know until after this update.

A building???

I just submitted a proposal to a gym owner.  This gym is smaller than our last, but equally exciting.  It is up to the owner whether or not the will accept our little school!

A few rules to reinforce:

When we train inside someone else’s facility, we have to remember that it isn’t ours!  Their supplies, breakable mirrors, breakable windows, and breakable anything is breakable.  Breaking is strictly prohibited of any breakable breakables.

A break from that.

For tuition, it is likely it would increase.  Buildings mean increased liability, and rent, which means higher rates for students.  I promise I will be as aggressively affordable as I can possibly make it while still being able to pay for the website, insurance, make our charitable contributions, and occasionally afford boards and bricks!

I will post the exact details of the location and any tuition changes when, or if, anything is agreed upon.  I spoke highly of my students to this owner, as I always do.  I can’t help but brag!

Just wanted to give everyone the heads up about any possible changes.

1/19-1/21 classes

The weekend will start warming up, which should resolve the ice problem, so class is back on!

Friday we will work on our legs.  Front stance, sitting stance and kicks.

Saturday will be arms with pull ups, push ups, knife hand strikes, and lots of punches!

Sunday we will do core, with sit ups and leg ups.


I’ll give a stripe to any student who can hang upside down by only their feet.

I’ll give a stripe to any student who can do that and touch their toes five times.

I’ll give a stripe to any adult (who isn’t a black belt) if they run 1/2 mile in less than 3 minutes, 30 seconds.

I’ll give a stripe to any kid that can run the 1/2 mile circuit in under 4 minutes.
