Ethan Gair Seminar



For those having trouble (like me) here’s the link to copy and paste or try to click!–gPPcM

Hyper Australia Athlete, Ethan Gair will be coming to SCS!

He’ll be here several days, so you’ll get to see him a lot, but he will be doing a special sword seminar on Wednesday, December 5.  6 pm.  There will be regular classes.

You’ll need a bokken to participate.  Do not plan on using your black belt sword!  The seminar will be free, but we would love to donate to Ethan’s travel fund as a way of thanking him for coming to visit our dojo!

Bokkens come in 29.5″ and 40″ lengths.  If you are 5’1 or shorter, choose the smaller.  If you are taller, choose the longer.  These will arrive Friday in time for the seminar!

Thanksgiving Week at SCS


We will have fun workouts each day at SCS during November 19-21.

November 19:  Mayflower Monday Mashup

We will have a mashup of class activities from games and dancing to fitness and kicking to trivia and more.  We’ll have a mashup of rocking music that will have everyone moving and grooving!  Regular Class Times

November 20:  Turkey Tabata Tuesday

Tuesday we will be doing more games, fitness and more martial arts fun.  We’ll be doing a lot of TABATA, which is 20 seconds of as many reps as possible, followed by 10 seconds of rest.  Regular Class Times!

November 21:  Wishbone Wednesday

Each class will be different and you get to choose your own adventure!  We will have two options for you to do at all times!  You’ll have to sign up for these class times as they’ll be a little earlier and limited in size.  Make sure you sign up here.

November 22:  Thankful Thursday Tag Team Workout

8:30 am, we’ll meet at the dojo after you’ve thrown the turkey in!  This is going to be a team of three workout where you’ll tag the other partners in to do different exercises.  This is for anyone who would like to attend, and it’s free, but attendees should be able to follow directions easily and not be a distraction to the class.  This is Ms. Crissi’s Workout, too!  Space is limited, so make sure you sign up here.


Snow Ball


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.

Please sign up here.  Please bring cash to the dojo and we will check your name off the list.

Thank you for being part of our dojo family.

If you have an Orange Stripe, you may be eligible for graduation in November.

Remember, it’s not just about attendance, but also about knowledge of material, fitness, performance of material, as well as behavior and attitude during the exam period (between the last exam and this exam).


  • Click here for Rank Requirements.
  • Please wear full gi (uniform, not a tee shirt) to graduation night.
  • You will be examined during your class.
  • In the past, our exams have taken place during regular class, where we finish with a spotlight on those being examined and it kind of blended with the class, with a focus on A and B Days.  As with the past few exams, Students will have two opportunities to test during this exam period.  In this exam, we will be having the students who are testing pulled to the side to be perform for Sensei so he can put them through their paces more thoroughly.  Parents are encouraged to watch.  This is important because Sensei can then give the proper feedback on whether it would be best to wait until the next promotion (January) or to retest again another day.   Students who are not familiar with their kata will likely have their goal reset.  The idea is to learn the chunks of the kata and practice it for retention, not cram it in at the end by learning it from a video.  He will also test them on their fitness and various self defense practices that they have learned in class.  He will also test their kicking and combination abilities.  All kicks must be above the belt.
    • Students will be tested in class on these factors:
    • Attendance and Commitment (you must attend a certain number of classes, be prepared for class with belt, on time, have equipment, etc. see here for details on class attendance requirements)
    • Knowledge of Material (ability to perform and recall techniques and kata taught in class and practiced outside of class)
    • Performance of Material (power, focus, details, confidence, kiais)
    • Behavior and Attitude (do you demonstrate black belt excellence in class, are you focused and willing to learn, are you modest, encouraging, positive)
    • School/Parent Responses (do your parents and school teachers (if in school) agree that you deserve to receive a new rank)
    • Anything Else Sensei Deems Necessary.
  • Students promoting to High Red Belt will begin their initial cycle in May/June 2019, as the current one is already underway.  You are encouraged to attend the meeting and boot camp for the the November 2018 Cycle (dates here).  This will give you some tools you need to be able to prepare for your cycle.  Cycle dates for the cycle you are eligible for will be updated by the end of March.  Thank you for your patience.  You can find more information about Black Belt Cycle here (this is continually updated).
  • During this promotion, teacher forms will be required for students in grades K-6.  Click here for a link to send to the teacher.
