Go Beyond the Ordinary

Empower Yourself

Empower Your Family

Empower the World

 

Word of the Week:

Studious

“Acting deliberately with a purpose in mind.”

When you commit to Black Belt, you commit to taking your martial arts training into your own hands. This means making an effort to get as much as you can out of every class and then practicing diligently outside of class. When we step onto the mat, it’s time to buckle down. We can always goof off later, and we don’t want to waste the opportunity we have to learn and grow on our Black Belt Journey.

Techniques Week

Regular Classes this week! Please check out our Summer Class Schedule here.


Demo Team Fundraising Car Wash This Saturday from 10am-2pm! The Beyond Sports Demo team consistently works hard to create and perform fun and exciting demonstrations. They recently attended the Utah State Championships and took Gold against some very competitive teams. This is a link to the youtube video of their performance. They have now set their sights even higher and are preparing to attend the US Open Hanmadang in Colorado at the end of next week. This is a very competitive tournament and they hope to challenge themselves and learn a lot. It is also a much more expensive tournament due to the travel expenses required. As such, they are working to raise money so that all of the members will be able to attend. We are really excited for them to take this step toward improving Taekwondo demonstration in Utah! Buy tickets from Demo Team members in advance, or come by during the 10-2 window. Thank you for your support!

BST Carpool: Some parents have expressed interest in a carpool list. This list will allow parents to communicate with others about where they live and who they can connect with to carpool for Taekwondo classes and events. Please contact us at the email or phone number above if you are interested in getting your name on a carpool list. Please give us your name, city, and phone number.


PONA’s Facebook Group: We have a Facebook group called PONA (Parents of Ninjas Association). The following link is where BST parents can request access to the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BSTPONA/

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

There are lots of cars in the parking lot and lots of parents dropping off and picking up kids. Remember this when you are running out to your car and make sure it is safe before you step into the parking lot!

Bring a water bottle to classes!

We want to stay hydrated for peak performance, but leaving the mat to get drinks would use up too much class time. Come prepared with your own water so that we can re-hydrate and get back to learning as soon as possible!

We have a Bike Rack at BST!

Students who ride their bikes have a place to lock them up! Please make sure you do bring a bike lock, and remember to take bikes home each night. We don’t want bikes to go missing!

Parent Association – PONA (Parents of Ninjas Association)

Some parents have expressed an interest in creating a parent association here at BST. There is a letter explaining areas where parents can volunteer at the front desk, as well as sign ups posted in the hall. If you have any questions please contact Mr. Waterlyn. You can get his contact info at the front desk, or email us at Beyondsportsutah@gmail.com and we can forward it to you.

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

We have created a special training space in the studio  that is  reserved for practicing Taekwondo, and we need to remember to respect that space by taking care of it. Wearing shoes, eating food, and non-water drinks on the mat can damage it or at the very least get it dirty, which makes our studio less enjoyable to learn in. If you see someone who doesn’t know or who has forgotten these rules, please respectfully remind them that that food, non-water drinks, and shoes need to stay off the mat!

Remember to bow when you go on and off the mat.

This is a way we show respect to our environment. We are so blessed to have such a clean, big training area, and we need to make sure we are showing our gratitude.  

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

A huge part of showing respect is simply acknowledging when someone has spoken to you. Please remember to use this skill when you’re here at BST, and you can even surprise your teachers and parents by using it outside the studio as well!”

Pushups are a consequence, not a punishment!

When students are late they miss part of the warm up, so they get to do pushups to make that up! Be on time so that you can warm up properly and avoid injury!

Note on Close Dates:

Many families go out of town for Holidays & 3 day weekends, which means that if we had class, many students would end up being behind when they got back. To mitigate this problem, we generally follow Alpine School District’s (ASD) Calendar and are closed when students don’t have school. We have worked these breaks into our curriculum schedule, so that students who attend our scheduled classes regularly will cover everything they need in order to test. We publish our close dates for the year in our Yearly Calendar. Please refer to it and plan as many vacations as possible during close dates to help keep interruptions on your path to Black Belt to a minimum.
