[01/11/20]   WIth the C. S. Kim Karate schools holding try-outs for Teams today, Saturday January 11th, we thought we would share some clips of some Forms Teams of the past to get you pumped.

Please stay home if you or your karate family members are experiencing flulike symptoms!

-We ask students to please wash hands and face before class with soap and water.

-Use of hand sanitizer stations at the school before and after classes.

-We also ask that we remind our children to refrain from hugs and extra high fives to our instructors who handle students. 😔

A new year means a new attendance card for each member of our school!

Why keep attendance with the card?

-keep track of days trained to hit the minimum of 8 classes a month for testing requirements

-see where gaps in training have been from illness/vacation/injury, set plan to make up missed classes

-view your consistency

-set goals for upcoming events
example: tournament coming up? Try hitting 12 classes a month instead of 8 😎

-keep records of ITF#, Dan#, and test dates completed along your training path

-compare with classmates for group enrichment and goal setting to meet up and train together 👊🏻💥👊🏻

“The best teamwork comes from people who are working independently toward one goal...in unison.”
