SUMMER FUN WEEKS START MAY 24!

Summer Fun Weeks are something we do each year to add to coming to the dojo. Each week there is a theme we follow and you can often dress up during class!

You can wear any SCS shirt (or even make your own) or wear the theme with your belt and gi pants during class. Remember NO Glitter!

Beach Fun Buddy Week kicks us off where you can wear any beachy outfit (no skin exposed) and we’ll do some fun beach games in class with our martial arts. You can even invite your friends this week to try karate classes! We’ll be sending home a special limited time offer for them to join you on your journey to black belt! Just have your friend complete the appropriate waiver here!

Sports week is the next week where we’ll do sports themed games in classes and you can show support for your favorite team. This is also the week we’ll start learning our new katas, so wear gi pants and your belt. Watch for details and info.

June 7-10 is Super Hero Week so dress up as your favorite super hero and be ready for some super hero fun!

Tricking Week comes June 14-17 and we’ll work some kicks and tricks we don’t normally get to do. Adults will get to be part of this, too!

June 21-24 is our Challenge Week. We’ll be creating teams and doing challenges in class. Who knows what they’ll be, but we’ll have fun no matter what! Be sure to wear your SCS Tee and gi pants and belt!

As we get closer to July, I’ll share the rest of the details with you!


2021 calendar information BEING UPDATED THIS WEEK!

You can download the full schedule or go to each individual calendar based on your needs. This is being updated and confirmed at this time. Please remember all dates and info are subject to change with notice. BLACK BELT CANDIDATE DATES ARE TENTATIVE AND HAVE NOT YET BEEN APPROVED BY RENSHI.

GEAR INFORMATION

Now that you have your gear, you need to do a few things to make sure you’re ready for sparring.
  1. Boil the mouthguard. Here is a link to some great directions. Please read all of them before you begin.
  2. If you have braces, please contact your orthodontist to let them know you participate in karate and ask what type of mouthguard they may require. If it is a Shock Doctor one, we recommend you go to Dick’s or Amazon due to the fact that our price is significantly higher than theirs. A mouthguard is one of the two items you may purchase outside the dojo. Please be sure it is a strapless mouthguard.
  3. Label every piece of equipment in an obvious place, including your mouthguard case. Use your first and last name. Silver Sharpies work great. You an get your bag embroidered or lettered or use a special key chain. We are not responsible for lost equipment.
  4. Practice putting it on. See below for handout on how to put your gear on. (#7)
  5. Please bring your gear to every class.
  6. Boys: On “B” Days (Wednesday or Thursday) please wear your cup to class, you will not have time to be able to do this when class begins. Here is some great information on why it is important. You will not be able to spar without it.
  7. Here is a link to a handout on how to put your gear on.

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND CLASS IF YOU ARE SHOWING ANY SYMPTOMS.

We offer Zoom classes so you won’t be left behind.

If you are scheduled for class and end up sick, please send a message to 251-458-6111 or use the Spark App to let us know. Otherwise, If you register for class and don’t show up, or contact us to tell us you are feeling unwell, you will be charged $10 as many of our students are unable to register for the class because they are full.

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches not from fitness
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

As, always, we ask that you stay home and rest or take advantage of our Zoom classes if you or someone from your family has been sick with any illness or if you or someone from your family is showing symptoms. This has always been our policy. For example, if a sibling tests positive for flu, please stay home and practice. Thank you.

YOU WILL STILL NEED TO PRE-REGISTER FOR CLASSES. WE WILL NOT BE SENDING CONFIRMATIONS.

Reminder that you need to pre-register for classes by 2:00 pm. Because spaces are limited, we ask that you pre-register. Our spaces are limited with the restrictions and most classes are full. We understand that things happen, but because so many people are trying to get into that class, we have to enforce this policy. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

PARENTS OF MINOR STUDENTS, PLEASE COMPLETE THIS WAIVER if you have not already.
