Current Black Belts should have their Black Belt Gi with them as well for the belt awarding ceremony.

TICKETS: There will be reserved seating.  More information to come.  Each Black Belt will have four VIP tickets included with their Black belt package.  Donations benefit Project Sparrow. Performers do not need a ticket. 

WHAT IS PROJECT SPARROW? 

Sometimes families run into financial hardships and rather than making them quit or having their account sent to collection, we pay the tuition for them for a period of time to help them get back on track and keep them working towards their goals and experiencing the benefits of training in the martial arts at SCS. Collecting for Black Belt Spectaculars helps us to offset a fraction of those costs. Throughout the past 12 years, SCS has helped hundreds of students through this program. We almost always have about $2400 per month going out in Sparrow funds. We really appreciate your donation to this worthy cause. 

VIDEO & PHOTOS: After the Spectacular, I hope to collect the photos, videos, slideshows, etc. and put them on your thumb drive if it is large enough.

CERTIFICATION: We will be awarding the certifications about 30 days after the Spectacular during class. You must be attending classes regularly to be awarded your certification.  Sensei will communicate with you so that you can have family and friends come watch you. 

TICKETS WILL GO ON SALE SOON.

EACH CANDIDATE WILL RECEIVE 4 FREE TICKET CODES INCLUDED WITH THEIR BLACK BELT PACKAGE 

PERFORMERS DO NOT NEED A TICKET 

AGES 5 AND UNDER FREE

Because of the drama at the last spectacular, you will be given ticket codes.  I will give you access to the Ticketleap site three days prior to everyone else.  After that date, the tickets will go on sale for everyone.  Sorry, we will not be reserving seats.  Everyone will have an assigned seat you can choose when you purchase.  I would recommend gathering money from your family and friends who want to attend if you want to sit together so they can be purchased together.  We will not be changing seats for people.  First come, first served.  We do ask that everyone be considerate and not choose the entire front row.  There will be several families and there should be enough room for each graduate to have at least the parents in the front row.
