We will be hosting our first annual Snow Ball on Saturday, December 8 from 6 pm until at least 8 pm!

You may dress up as much as you want or dress comfortably.  There will be backgrounds for some great family photos and more.

We will have a dj for dancing, games and fun.  

Parents are asked to please supervise their children and it is not a drop off event.

Families are welcome.  It’s $5 per person or $20 per family, which will cover table settings, decorations and some little extras.  5 and under is no charge.

We will bring a main dish and a cake, and we’re asking everyone to bring a dish to pass and any drinks you would like.

We’ll have board games, cards and more.  It will be a great way to celebrate the fellowship within the dojo this holiday season.

Karate Checklist: ADVANCED AND INTERMEDIATES

These are checklists to prepare students for class.

Karate Checklist: LIL CHAMPS AND BEGINNERS

  • Uniform (must be an SCS Tee or Gi Top with Gi pants)
  • Karate Belt
  • Is my shirt tucked in?
  • Have I used the bathroom and gotten a drink? I won’t be able to go during class.
  • Am I arriving a few minutes early for class? We totally understand that sometimes people are late however, kids feel more confident and get a safe, enjoyable warm up when they are on time. It also helps them be more focused. If you are more than ten minutes late, it’s probably better to come to another day.
  • Do I have shoes I can wear into the building? Many people feel it’s okay to go barefoot from the car into the dojo, however we want to make sure everyone is safe. We do our best to keep the dojo clean and sanitize the mats regularly with natural cleansers that kill Flu and Aids. Please help us make sure it’s safe for the next class coming in as well. Here’s some potential nastiness that you could bring in with you. Read them and then think about doing pushups on the mat after someone has come in from outside without shoes. You will be asked to wash your feet, if we see you.
  • Gear bag (if you have received it)
    • Cup for boys (must be worn on B Days)
    • Mouthguard (please boil it before you come to class
    • Be sure you know how to put it on (click here for detailed information and video)

SHOW SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3 DOORS OPEN AT 12:30 PM

Please have already eaten. Bring a drink. Do not bring gear bags. Bring your weapons if needed 

PERFORMERS: Wear an SCS tee with the RISE logo on it, we would prefer a Black One, Gi Pants, pressed. We recommend a black tee or tank underneath. Make yourself look really nice.

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

NEW BLACK BELTS:  WEAR YOUR NEW UNIFORM FOR THE WHOLE SHOW SO THAT YOU STAND OUT. WE RECOMMEND A PLAIN BLACK TEE OR TANK UNDERNEATH

For Demo: SCS RISE GI Tee, Gi Pants and Belt (THOSE PROMOTING will wear their Black Belt Gi)

BLACK BELTS:  STUDENTS WHO ARE ALREADY BLACK BELTS SHOULD PLAN ON BRINGING THEIR FULL GI FOR THE AWARDING OF THE BELTS, YOU WILL WEAR A RISE TEE FOR THE REST OF THE SHOW.

SHOW: Doors open at 12:30 PM The show will last about an hour and a half. We will have cake and punch afterwards for everyone to enjoy. 

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.

No Classes Thursday, April 25-Friday, April 26

As we prepare for the big show where Shihan Sgarlata will be promoting Sensei to his 5th Degree, we have a lot to set up and make happen!

There will be no classes on Thursday, April 25 as we prepare for the show and practice. This will be a team work day, watch for sign ups! We’ll need people to run errands, do small tasks and may even need help with some outside yard work to make the dojo awesome for this milestone in SCS history and outstanding achievement for our Sensei!

Friday, April 26, will be reserved for Sensei’s private testing. More information to come.
