If you do not come to belt graduation on the assigned date and you wish to have a private graduation you will have an additional fee.

Orange, Purple and Blue Belt Ranks=$40 + graduation fee.
Green and Brown=$100 (2 hour test) + graduation fee.
No Phones during classes!
Parent’s we need your help during class time. When you bring your child to class we want our parent’s focus on their child and what they are doing. Cell phones have been a great invention but they tend to get in the way at times. We want our children to feel important and know their parent is watching them on the mat. This is a great way to keep up with holding them accountable with what they learned and behavior. I think we all can benefit from putting away the phones for 30 minutes. By all means, if you have to take a call, please step outside and do so.
New Birthday Packages
Word From Kyoshi
Please no Food or Drinks in the dojo.Please be on time for classes. Having students come in late is a distraction to our beginning class procedure. All students should arrive 5-10 minutes before class.
Please keep all smaller children away from the mat during classes. They can be distracting to students.

Parking behind the karate school
Parent’s please be sure to take advantage of parking behind the karate school and use the rear entrance. Parking in front of the art store is not allowed until they are closed after 6:00PM.
Things to Remember
1. Please park in the rear leave our up front parking for our new guests.
2. Turn cell phones off or on vibrate during class.
3. Please don’t stand by the wall next to the mat. It is distracting to the students and the instructors.

5. No students under any circumstances should be at the Dojo more than 10 minutes before his/her class without permission from Kyoshi.
