Board Breaking, Sales, Grading Oh My

Published on November 4, 2013, by in Blog, News.

Hello again everyone,

Halloween is back in bed for another year. Sigh. But the rest of the holidays are rapidly approaching. So from November 11th, until the end of December Bell’s Martial Arts will be having a sale on ALL MERCHANDISE, (books, uniforms, sparring equipment etc), 15% off. So if you are looking to stock up on uniforms now is the time.

This month I will be taking orders for Heavy Weight Uniforms. The normal uniforms we wear are great, but the Heavy Weight Gis are made from a much thicker material, are 100% cotton, and last two to four times longer. The shipping is quite high so we will only being doing an order once or twice a year so order while we can! Also the sale applies to these uniforms as well.

We are going to have our Adult and Kids Board Breaking Seminars on the 21st and 23rd respectively. Check out the Dojo for more info or click HERE for the Adult Seminar’s info and HERE for the Kid’s. It going to be a lot of fun but remember if you are going you must be signed up by November 16th as I need to buy, cut and bring the boards to the Dojo. Also, students can bring 1 guest for free and your guest gets 3 free boards!

Of course there is the Grading on November 30th as well. If you are in it, be ready. If you want to be in it, show you do. That’s always the general rule.

Keep in mind that Remembrance Day is a week away. Get those poppies and take a  moment next Monday.

Finally the weekly sign. I like to think of this saying as a piece of advice more then a warning. It’s great to strive for perfection. It keeps us growing. As long as we know we can’t really ever get there. Have a wonderful week and see everyone soon!

Hello Everyone,

Here is this week’s sign. Simple and true. Have a great week and see everyone soon,

Hello Everyone!

It has officially been one year since Bell’s martial Arts opened it’s doors. I just wanted to first say THANK YOU. It’s been a crazy ride so far, filled with many challenges, hard times, and smiles. I am sure there will even more good times to come!

Our new schedule has taken affect so please take the time to look at the new times HERE.

This month has crept on me and is looking quite busy already. On October 26th we will be having a HALLOWEEN PARTY & POT LUCK instead of classes. My Uncle Earlll from Transylvania is coming to the Dojo so make sure you have your costume ready. Click HERE to check out all the details.

On October 5th, the Honbu Dojo will be having a Junior Black Belt Grading. It is a Grading for teens and kids that have been training and putting in hard work for a long time but aren’t ready for a full Black Belt. For all those interested in seeing what a Junior Black Belt entails (as ours will be quite similar) all the details are posted HERE and are available at the Dojo. Because it starts sharply at 3:00pm we will be closing early that day at 12:30pm.

The week after on October 12th we will be holding our next Grading for those that weren’t quite ready for our last Grading. It will start sharply at 4:00pm so don’t be late. Details at the Dojo or by clicking HERE.

The following week on October 19 at the Honbu Dojo there will be an adult Black Belt Grading. It has some people who have been training very hard to get ready and it will be a blast! I recommend that anyone who has a Black Belt as a goal should attend! It’s the best way to get an idea of what is expected for Black Belt. It will also be held at the Honbu Dojo in Mississauga and will start SHARPLY at 3:00pm. Because of the early start the Dojo will also be closing early that Saturday at 12:30pm. Details at the Dojo or by clicking HERE.

And of course our weekly sign. Remember to find a teacher to learn from. It’s hard to correct yourself when you don’t know the answers. Have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing everyone soon!!!!!!!

Weekly Sign, Get Moving

Published on September 23, 2013, by in Blog, News.

Ah, the greatest time of the year is upon us… HALLOWEEN! The Dojo will be having a Halloween party on October 26th to celebrate. We have details posted in the Dojo, but there will be online details later this week. Just remember that Uncle Earlll from Transylvania will be here so get ready to be scared. At the end of this week we will be having our next Grading (September 26th). All those who are in it have fun and give it your all. All those looking to be in the Grading, show me what you got!

This weeks sign is a simple one, but true. Remember the first step to being good at some thing is being bad at it. So if you aren’t performing well at some thing, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You’re on your way to being GREAT! Have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing everyone soon,
