Attendance Card Responsibility!
It is our duty as a school to set the standard for our students. We want to be sure that all students youth (10-14) or adult are pulling their attendance card before class starts. In failure to pull your card, you will not get credit for that class. This is the responsibility that we put in place for our students. Asking to add classes the day after or any other situation will not be accepted.
3 tips to help remember:
- Be on time
- Directly go to the card box on your way in.
- Look at your card everyday, look at the dates, see how many you need to reach your next goal!
Others want to know your experience!
Let’s face it, every decision we make when it comes to the things we do or where we go starts with Google. We all pay attention to the reviews each individual business acquires. Please help others know what your experience has been like at our school!
Other parents have:
Talked about the cleanliness of the school
Give instructor shout outs
or even what Martial Arts has done for your family.

CDW Karate Team
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 us know.
As of August, 1st 2019
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.
Too many students have been missing the assigned graduation date. Please be sure to mark calendars for assigned testing days.
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.

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.
4. No food or drinks in the dojo – PLEASE!
5. No students under any circumstances should be at the Dojo more than 10 minutes before his/her class without permission from Kyoshi.
6. ALL patches must be on all Gis that you wear to class. Black Gis have to have chest and sleeve patches.
