On belt promotions will be this Thursday, February 15th (during class time) at the PTSDA Karate.  We look forward to recognizing students that recently tested.  If any of our children’s program parents would like to see their child promoted but can’t make it at the earlier time, please let us know that you would like your child promoted during the evening class time (see calendar).  We will have a short class following the belt promotion.

Do you have a Fixed Mindset or Growth Mindset?  At the PTSDA Karate, we are all about growth.  We are constantly encouraging our members to improve through lessons, practice and example.  However, it’s easy at times to get stuck in the fixed mindset.  It’s a place of not being flexible.  It’s a place of stagnation.  At times, we just have to get past our ego and let go.  Take a look at the chart below to see if you have a fixed or growth mindset. Looking forward to an awesome week of growing in the area of mindset. Ready, set,  [ Read More ]

Growing up, each of us learned different etiquette (manners) from our parents. At times, it may have seemed quite annoying. Elbows off the table, chew with your mouth closed, etc.   All that nitpicking paid off immediately when someone else noticed our good manners. A feeling of positive pride and gratitude stirred within us. Ultimately, we began to understand that the manners were helping us become a better person. This same idea is found in Tang Soo Do. We constantly remind students about sitting up straight, yes sir/ma’am, bowing in properly, respect for seniors, etc. It takes effort and discipline. Etiquette  [ Read More ]
