Thank you for taking the time to read the announcements!
SCS IS CLOSED THE REMAINDER OF THIS WEEK.
Kyleigh is competing in her first tournament as a NASKA competitor, so we will be out of town. Mr. Brandon and Ms. Catherine were going to run the dojo while we were gone, but he has the flu and while we love sharing and giving, we are not willing to share illness! We have decided it is best to keep the dojo closed, let the germs all die and come back strong next week. We will be posting workouts and challenges while we are closed so you can get your workout on!
Exam Weeks and Candidate requirements will be adjusted. We will test during the week next week and make it all work out for graduation next Friday, January 26.
Thank you for your understanding, concern and support during this unprecidented situation. We have always been able to make things work so that the dojo can operate during a short hiatus and having the flu rampant has made things challenging. We are very grateful for our dojo family for the encouragement to just take the time to take care of things that are needed.
We will try to figure out some make up classes or a special event to make up for the missed classes during this time.
Be sure to practice, be safe, drink lots of water and exercise!
January 15-25 – Exam Weeks. If you are graduating, please see here for details.
January 17-19 – NO CLASSES/DOJO CLOSED
January 26 – Graduation Night. NO REGULAR CLASSES See below for details.
We now have two Hyper Classes on Friday
Hyper 1 is for any BBC Member who is interested. This will be the beginning of Hyper where you will learn the necessary basics to move on to Hyper 2. You must be well behaved and focused to attend. If you have not been invited to Hyper 2, you will come to Hyper 1.
Hyper 2 is for students who have been invited and is the more advanced stage. If you have not been specifically invited to Hyper 2, Hyper 1 is the class you will come to.
Tournament Team/Demo Team
Tournament Team Practices will take place during the Hyper Classes. These are for people who have tried out for the team. This is not for people who just want to participate in tournaments. This is for our Tournament Demo Teams.
Tournament Team A (Mars) will be during Hyper 1, then you will attend Hyper 2 for your Hyper Class.
Demo Team B (Aries) will be during Hyper 2, so you will attend Hyper 1 class for your Hyper class.
Exam Weeks Start January 15!
Watch for information and eligibility. You will have all four stripes by the end of this week if you are eligible.

New Schedule Announced!
After going through everyone’s responses to the schedule survey we had available throughout the month of December, I think I have one that will work for everyone! You can right click on it to save (or whatever your device requires).
There is a PDF copy here: CLASS SCHEDULE JANUARY 2018
We are still considering jiu jitsu times to be on a different night for the adults. So please reply with any feedback you may have if you attend Adult Jiu Jitsu.
High Red Belt and Above Candidate Meeting/Orientation
PARENTS REQUIRED TO ATTEND/READ/GET NOTES/ETC. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR SCHOOL AGED CHILD TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THIS MEETING.
We are in the process of adjusting our Black Belt Cycles to be more calendar friendly throughout the year. This year will be a transitional year, and we will have three Black Belt Spectaculars. February 16, June 1 or 2 and November 1-2 or 9-10.
As such, we are having an Orientation/Discussion meeting on Friday, January 12 at 7:00 pm for all who can attend. We will record it if you cannot. We will also have a packet for you to download. At this point, our Spectacular will be June 1 or 2. We will have a calendar outlining the details and adjustments. We will answer many of your questions, discuss schedule challenges, etc.
The good news is for those that were recycled in this particular cycle, you will get a chance to promote two months earlier and those that are eligible this cycle, but may need a little more time, you still have a chance to promote during 2018, but with a little extra time.
WE ARE PREPARING ALL THE DOCUMENTATION AND WILL HAVE IT READY BEFORE THE MEETING SO THAT YOU CAN COMPARE THE SCHEDULE TO YOURS AND WE MAYBE CAN DO THE ADJUSTING DURING THE MEETING.
If you are not able to attend, please email your questions/concerns prior to the meeting and we will include them in the meeting.
Please DO NOT expect us to answer questions prior to this time, as this will be a bit of a discussion as well.
We will be handing out a notice to all students who are asked to try to attend this orientation.
Hoodies, Jackets and Black Belt Gi Tees will be in the early part of 2018. Thank you for your patience! We did not receive enough orders for the Christmas Rush.
Mark Your Calendars for March 2-3! Dan Perez is coming to SCS! Watch for details! We will also have the Competitive Edge team this spring!
