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!

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!
Hello BST Friends & Family!
We have limited on-site classes right now due to the Coronavirus. We appreciate your patience at this time. The schedule is online and has been emailed to current students. Please check your email for your class ID # and passcode!
This is the first week of Kick Combos! We are working on getting the YouTube videos filmed for all the ranks, so please keep checking back. You will learn your combo in classes regardless, so please make sure you’re practicing it for at least 5 minutes a day at home!
Remember, in order to pass off your black tape you will need a Performance 25 for EACH of your required Poomsae. Your required poomsae are listed on Kicksite. To get your eval, please video yourself doing your form and email it to us. Please video from the front and make sure we can see all your extremities at all times.
We are continuing our Zoom classes, but there is a new schedule to accommodate more classes in the gym, so please check it and adjust your calendars! Please make sure you know when your classes are and set alarms in your phone/calendar so that we can remember and get as many people in class as possible!
Black Belt Testing Manuals are in (for all current Black Belts and Advanced Ranks)! All current Black Belts are highly encouraged to get one, regardless of whether they are testing in 2021 so they can start tracking those items that can be passed off now, including reports, meditation journals, and 100 Challenges. Advanced ranks may also purchase a book if they want to know where they are headed, and they also can start working on the items listed above. Books are limited, and we don’t know when we’ll be able to print more due to the quarantine, so it will be first come first serve. Books are $50 each, and an amazing resource. respond to this email to reserve yours and we’ll contact you if we have any available.
Please log in to Kicksite and enable Texting! With email being slow or spotty, text is one of the most reliable forms of communication we have right now. We will try to send any pertinent info via text if we see an email has not arrived. Also, you may text the studio at any time with questions or concerns and we’ll reply as soon as we can.
If you call during the day we will answer if we can. Master Sorenson is constantly filming right now, so if it goes to voicemail please leave a message and she will call you back between videos.

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.
