Happy Monday!

New Class Schedule

Starting This Week!

Yes, but there are not as many changes as you would think. We tried a different way of approaching our Focus Classes and to be honest, it didn't work as well as we liked. So, we are adjusting.

  • Stick To It will begin at 5:15 pm to align with the Kickboxing Essential.

Phase Program Changes

  • The Phase 1 class has moved to 6:00 pm instead of 5:45 pm. Still right after S.T.I.
  • We have moved our Phase 2 class to Monday and Wednesdays at 7:00 pm (Same time, different days). We have also added a Saturday Phase 2 class at 11:30 pm

Focus Class Changes

We have consolidated the 2 options of each class back into one each week.

What's going on this week"

There are a lot of things in life that we can not control so we have to work hard at controlling ourselves.

This week we are talking about how to to control our thoughts, specifically staying Focused. Being focused means keeping your mind on you task. Whether it is in school, at work, at home or in martial arts class, when you are focused you can do your best.  If you get distracted is make doing your best difficult but, you have the control to stop collect yourself and get re-focused on the task so you can finish strong.

Sometimes, even when we are focused and doing our best, things may not go the way we planned. That can be frustrating. We can get down on ourselves and start thinking negative thoughts. We have control over that too. If you start to feel that way start thinking Positive thoughts. Remind yourself that you are doing the best you can and that everytime you try you are getting better. Not everything will go our way all the time but, we can control how respond to the bad stuff. Remember the Positive things and get re-focused on your goal and keep moving forward.
