Tenet of the Week:

Self Control

   “Doing the right thing at the right time.”

I only use what I learn to protect, defend, and keep my environment safe.

Utah Valley's Premiere Martial Arts Studio & Fitness Center

Safety First - Look both ways before going into parking lot!

With so many people coming and going it can get pretty hectic. Cars may not be able to see you, so be safe!

No Peanuts Please!

We have students who are severely allergic, so don’t bring peanuts to BST and wash your hands if you ate them earlier. Thanks for keeping each other safe!

Bring a water bottle to classes!

To be able to get a drink during class, make sure to bring a water bottle with your name on it!

We have a Bike Rack at BST!

Please bring a bike lock, and remember to take bikes home each night!

PONA

To get involved talk to the Front Desk!

No shoes, food, or non-water drinks on the mat!

Help us take care of our training space and keep it clean! 

We always bow when we go on and off the mat.

This shows respect and gratitude for our training space. 

Remember to show respect by saying "Yes Ma'am/Sir"

A huge part of showing respect is acknowledging when someone has spoken to you!

Pushups: consequence not punishment

Consequences are a fact of life.  We like pushups because they build the core muscles we need to excel!

Keep your hair out of your face!

This shows confidence and improves your technique. No hats or full-head coverings please.

Current Covid Guidelines: We’re so grateful for you, and will do our best to follow the guidelines while still providing you quality martial arts instruction!  Here’s the plan:

  1. Masks are required at all times when inside BST. Masks should cover nose and mouth. Make sure to bring your own mask! We are out of disposable masks, so if a student forgets their mask, we will give them a cloth one and bill the account they have on file for $5 plus tax.
  2. If using equipment, use hand sanitizer before & after. Please wipe down the equipment afterwards with the provided spray & rag (or wipes, if available) 
  3. We will social distance as much as possible. 
  4. We still have  online classes available if you need them! Refer to your student manual for the codes.
