 Isn’t modern technology amazing? Sometimes it feels like we’re in a science fiction movie. Think about it. We can talk and see someone from across the globe with our phone. Crazy, right? With being so connected, we are often disconnected from those in front of us. Go out to eat this week and look around you. Who is actually having a conversation? My encouragement for whoever reads this post is to make more effort to be connected with their family this week.

We have all heard the phrase, let’s agree to disagree. Isn’t it great to be able to disagree with someone yet still walk away with mutual respect? This week, we will focus on improving our tolerance through patience and open mindedness.

It’s exciting to see more adults stepping out onto the training floor. It takes a lot of courage to cross that line from watching classes to actually doing them. Here are the classic fears I often hear for not doing class. Everyone is watching me (in reality everyone else is thinking the same thing), I’ll mess up (join the club) or I’m going to get in shape first (it’s like having enough money to have kids…it will never happen).

What do I need to do? We’re glad you asked.  Be in class this week for extra review.  Before a student is allowed to test at our school, they must qualify at our Pre-Testing. What is Pre-Testing? Simply put, pre-testing helps to confirm your student’s eligibility. Your student will demonstrate their basic material (basics, forms, etc.). They will need to pass in each subject to receive their Eligibility Form. Your student’s attitude and effort will also be noted during this time. When is Pre-Testing? Pre-Test 2 – Monday, Nov 5th  The pre-test will be during your student’s normal class time.  [ Read More ]

WOW! Word of the Week HEALTH Money and power doesn’t matter without good health. This week, I am encouraging our members to make healthy choices in their daily life.  My biggest tip is to create an environment to support your goal for healthy living. Replace unhealthy items with healthier items. Develop a plan that makes sense for you and use it.  Power up in the morning with a few minutes of exercise, read, or listen to positive messages. Eat healthy to help fuel your day. Let’s get healthy, PTSDA Karate!

Sa Bom Nim and Kyo Sa Nim Dufour represented the PTSDA Karate among the ITF School owners from Texas, Utah, Florida, Georgia, Michigan and Louisiana at the Regional Black Belt Testing in Arlington, TX.  It was a wonderful experience. The next ITF Regional Black Belt Test will be in the spring here in Pensacola.  Once we set the date, we will communicate it to our members.
