Social Media Presence
You guys are the reason we even have the opportunity to be successful and we are so thankful for that. I just wanted to let you know about a couple things that will be happening around our school:
Every Monday- Kickin It with Sensei Coy: this is a live Facebook video to let parents know whats going on at the dojo the upcoming week!
1st of the month we will take some photos of our students during classes to help branding with our school and to show emotion at our school.
2-3 Times per week we will do a Facebook Live video of our classes. This gives your child the opportunity to be a superstar while again letting the community know how we teach kids, youth and adults, Martial arts and life skills!
Our goal as a karate school is to instill quality Martial Arts to all of our students and the community!
If you have any questions please see Sensei Coy! *** If you would not like your child to participate, please let me know***
Our August 5-9th Focus is completely filled!
Be on the lookout for the next event!

Thank You so much!
Parents and students,
Thank you so much for the care and support through the loss of my grandmother and Kyoshi’s mom Marion Williamson. She was loved by so many people and our family was overwhelmed by the support and love. This Karate school is about families sticking together and being there for one another!
Kyoshi and Sensei Coy
Prompt drop – off before class – no more than 10-15 mins before class starts.
Doors will not open until 15 min before class.
Please be sure to have prompt pickup for your children after class.
Thank you CDW KARATE TEAM
As of August, 1st 2018
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

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.
