Good students

Very proud of my two students who lost blood this weekend, honing their skills! A few bumps, bruises, and punches in the face…reminds me why I teach.

I live for those moments (happening regularly now) where students get the better of me. I’m getting kicked, punched, and de-contact-lensed. Every bruised shin is a victory. Every sore morning means I did my job!

But the real victors are these two students. Both with incredible talent and instinct, each using their training as an expression of their will to survive a fight. It can be tough to be punched by one another and, through blood and tears, still be comrades. But the discipline in this will carry to the real world.

Beat your instructor, sure. But you are resilient now. How could a word, mocking, taunting, or empty threats anger you now? Both of you have been through more physical assault than any bully could ever inflict. You did it together. You both beat me soundly on the way.

A true pleasure to teach you both! Though I think…you are the ones teaching me.

Excuse me while I get an ice pack.

Tournament!

April 15th! 40$ to participate in one event. An additional 5$ for others! See instructor for proper gear requirements and help!

NEW LOCATION!!!

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY!!!

 

There are several changes, some good, some not, that are starting.

Firstly, for the good and most immediate.

WE HAVE A LOCATION INSIDE!  OFFICIALLY!

The owner at Studio HIIT in Clarskville Indiana was kind enough to offer us a space on saturdays and sundays.  Same time.  With a new and update facility!

The address is 1418 Blackiston Mill Rd #6, Clarksville, IN 47129.

It is incredibly important to note that you will see a neighboring martial arts studio.  That is NOT where we are located.  Make sure it is Suite #6, the one that says Studio HIIT.

I’ll go over some rules and regulations while we are there.

 

Secondly, we are given our usual time slots on Saturday and Sunday.  This means there is no class on Friday anymore.  At least for now.  Ideally, I want as many classes as possible, but we have to be respectful of the needs of the gym owner.

Likewise, tuition will increase from $30 to 60$.  Tuition is what pays for insurance and (now) rent.  I do my best to keep the prices as competitive as possible.  There will still be no contracts.  I’m also going to give everyone a one-month buffer.  So the new tuition won’t start until the first class of March.  February is still 30$!

 

I know changes are weird, but my students can handle it.  Especially the cold-weather titans who kept training in the below-freezing weather.  You guys rock!  I think you’ll be happy with the new place.

 

So to recap:

1418 Blackiston Mill Rd #6, Clarksville, IN 47129, Saturday and Sunday 1-2 for kids, 2-3 for 12 and up.

No Friday class.

$60 tuition a month starts in march, no contracts.
