Kicking Seminar Friday, July 31

This soon to be 12 year old has some stretching and strength drills for all of us to take our kicking to new heights.

Team Macho’s Kodi Molina is a talented and dedicated martial artist from Texas. Her family is always willing to share, whether it be a hug, knowledge or even a sandwich! This Friday, she will be sharing her tips and tricks with us! Get motivated to work hard and achieve those goals! 

We’re asking for a $5 donation to send to her to offset her training and competition expenses! 

REGISTER HERE!

You can Venmo your donation or bring cash to the dojo.

Please let us know you’re interested so we can add you to the list. You can let us know below. 

You don’t have to train at SCS to be part of it. 

Zoom info will be available Thursday. Only 20 people can be accommodated in the dojo so sign up for the 5:30 Friday High Red Belt class if you’re interested in doing this at the dojo!

If you have a fitness band or old karate belt you can kick with, have it available!

Spectators Click Here for Instructions

Click Here for Results (updated on Monday)


If you are competing, please read this section.

Here is a sheet that shows our competitors and their rings for the event. The link is to the order of the ring.

You can find information for watching here.

Feel free to come practice at the dojo during the 5:30 CMX Class (please register online like you do for normal classes). We will be happy to help you with your kata and make sure you are feeling strong about your performance for the event.

Bring your uniform and belt. You will be competing in your belt and uniform, so you won’t want to forget it. You may want to have other clothes with you to keep it neat. Go ahead, iron it, make it look great! You will feel stronger and more powerful!

Bring drinks and snacks and maybe even plan on going to pick up take out. During the event, you will want snacks and drinks. We have a refrigerator available, but we currently are not stocking drinks and snacks, so bring some of your favorites with you and maybe even plan to go for takeout during the day. We will set up some tables and chairs so that people have hangout areas away from the competition area.

UPDATED! If you are competing, please follow these directions to find out your zoom room and time and send it to Ms. Crissi by Friday Night!

  • Go to http://www.mataction.com
  • login
  • go to your name in upper right corner
  • click my orders
  • scroll down to my attendance
  • click view under registration (blue box)
  • scroll to bottom where divisions are and take a photo or screen shot
  • text that to 251-458-6111
  • it should look like this:

You should have received an email with a lot of information from the Fever Frenzy. Please read through it, it gives a lot of information.

I will take the information that shows the Name, Division, Time and Zoom Room and compile them into a list for us to use at the dojo that will help organize us to be able to make sure we don’t miss any divisions and that we can be organized.

You can print this PDF of all the divisions here. https://drive.google.com/file/d/19KLPlfc_u01poitjb_QugBu22zWetJHG/view

We will be at the dojo at 8:30 to prepare for competition. You don’t need to be there for the whole thing, but do plan to come early so you can warm up and encourage others at the dojo.

Because of the new mask ordinance, we should all do our best to wear them if possible and social distance. No, it won’t be enforced, but we will be considerate of others who would like to.

How does competition work? This is a unique way of competing, but we love the format of it and the way we can encourage others to be part of the event.

What will happen is that you will receive the email I mentioned above and you will get to the dojo 30-60 minutes before your scheduled session. Your division may be at the beginning of the session or more towards the end, and they may run behind because of difficulties or judge changes or having more competitors than they expected. The reason they cut off the registration on Thursday is so that they can organize it.

During that session, we will log in to the Zoom Room on one of our phones so that we can be ready for your event. We will have a phone for each Zoom Room (there will be two for the competition). The rooms are similar to rings at a tournament. When it’s your turn, the announcer will call your division. The names of the competitors in the division will be checked in and shuffled. The order will be given (usually really quickly) and we will be ready and waiting for the announcer to call our name and start the audio on the device. You will perform and sometimes she or he will want to speak to you. After you have competed, you wait for the division to finish and then the judges announce the scores.

Regardless of your placing, you will receive a Division Certificate in your mailbox within an hour or two of your division that you can proudly share to social media! Please forward these emails to crissi.boyer@me.com so we can shout it out loud about your hard work and dedication and bravery to compete!


Spectators, please read this section.

We will post the links where you can see what divisions are running and what is going on later this evening when we receive the details.

There will be different sessions, so look for the Live notification and be sure you are watching a current room and not a pre-recorded room. You will be able to go back later and watch them as well.

This will be shared live on the SportMartialArts.com site.

You can watch and share it on Facebook at SportMartialArts.

You can watch it on YouTube at SportMartialArts channel.

High Red Belt & Above Class Fridays at 6:30 pm — June 5, 2020

High Red Belt & Above Class Fridays at 6:30 pm

Preparing for your Black Belt Exam can be overwhelming. We are offering classes to High Red Belts and above to work on details, special curriculum and to help you get stronger and more focused for your Black Belt Exam.

At this point, it is not mandatory, but available to all High Red Belts and above who are interested in attending.

July 10 Class: Open Mat for all High Red Belts and Black Belt Candidates

This will be an open mat session to allow you to use any equipment or floor space you need to prepare for your Black Belt Candidate Training.  If you have any questions regarding curriculum, they can be answered in this session.  

We will not be offering it via zoom, however later this week, we will be sharing a syllabus for Black Belt Training as well as a video to elaborate on some of the details of this training.  If you are unable to attend, please email your questions to sensei@scskarate.com. 

At this time, we are unable to really begin training due to the fact that much of our curriculum is interactive.  Self defense, sparring, pad work, etc. are all measurements of a student’s skill level in regards to their ability to be ready for Black Belt.  Fitness, kata, attitude, attention to detail are all very important as well, and can be worked on at this time, so please watch for the information we will be sharing this week.

We understand that preparing for your Black Belt Exam can be overwhelming. We are offering classes to High Red Belts and above to work on details, special curriculum and to help you get stronger and more focused for your Black Belt Exam.

At this point, it is not mandatory, but available to all High Red Belts and above who are interested in attending.

PLEASE PRE-REGISTER FOR THE IN PERSON CLASS.  Details here.

We will also offer the class on Zoom. (except on July 10.)
