Testing Week at Tactical Martial Arts

Testing Week at Tactical Martial Arts

January 25, 2021

Hello Everyone and Happy Monday!

We hope you all had a great weekend. As most may know, this is testing week, so the pressure is on! Please make sure that you or your child is attending their regularly scheduled classes as well as practicing at home! We will be handing out testing sheets now through Thursday, if you do not get a testing sheet in your class, please ask an instructor what can be worked on so you can try again in your next class. Please remember that testing is a privilege not a right. Once you receive your testing paper, please fill it out immediately and turn it into the front desk. Testing fees are on the testing paper so please observe. If you need to pre or post test, please speak with a staff member.

                Most Commonly Asked Question: What determines if my child is ready?

The instructors are looking for students to confidently know the material we have been working in class over the last two months. Students also need to show enthusiasm and putting forth an effort in their classes, students should also be exhibiting good behavior at home and school as well as here at the gym.

Testing Schedule (January 30th) NO REGULAR TKD CLASSES ON THIS DAY!

Tiny Tigers 9AM

White, Orange & Yellow Belts 10AM

Camo, Green & Purple Belts 11AM

Blue & Up 12PM

 

We will have pre- paid testing cards on sale for this week that saves you $100.00 over the course of the year. Cards are kept on file, so there is one less thing you have to keep up with! All you have to do is fill out the testing sheet when you or your child receives them.

All in house merchandise (student uniform, gear, apparel, etc.) is on sale this week for 10% off!

Parents please remember, if your child is a yellow belt testing to camo, they will begin sparring in the camo belt class and WILL NEED sparring gear! This can all be purchased at the front desk and this week is the best time to do it!

 

As always, if you have any questions, please DO NOT hesitate to ask!

What`s Happening @ Tactical Martial Arts

Hello Everyone!

We hope everyone is doing well during this challenging time, but this too shall pass! We just wanted to get everyone up to date on what is going on here at the school and our current “game plan”.

CLASSES

We have been teaching classes virtually since mid March and after much trial and error, we have began using Zoom vs. Facebook Live and You Tube. Reason being, is that with Zoom, we do not experience the delays and sometimes  getting booted offline as we did with the lives, which was becoming rather problematic for all of us, especially the students trying to learn new material. Also, with Zoom, if you are not able to get onto the class at that time, we can send out a recording of the meetings, so sort of like with You Tube, you can watch it on your own time. Best of both worlds right? We currently have a schedule of teaching virtual classes Tuesday- Thursday, classes are broken down like they are on our regular schedule. We have Tiny Tigers, Karate For Kids, Adult Taekwondo and Krav Maga offered during various times throughout the day.

 

On the week of April 27th, we began allowing up to six students to attend in house classes here at Tactical Martial Arts during various class times as well. We are using extreme caution by social distancing and continuing to thoroughly sanitize all surfaces prior, during and after every class. As well as  checking temperatures of every individual that enters the building and making sure students are sanitizing their equipment prior to each class. We are also offering private lessons where students can either come into the facility prior to classes or virtually and work individually with an instructor, this is proving to be successful as well.

 

We plan to continue offering all three class options (virtual, in facility and private lessons) until at least the beginning of June. We will send out updates are changes occur.

 

We are currently sending out the links for both in facility and virtual classes to all students on Wednesday the week prior to the classes.

Example, today is 5/6/2020, we just emailed the links for the week of May 11.

 

Unsure about joining us? Register NOW for a 5 Class Trial for JUST $25.00. This is valid for Tiny Tigers, Karate for Kids, Adult Taekwondo and Krav Maga programs!

Offer Valid Through May 15th
