Tenet of the Week:
“Never giving up.”
I pick myself up each time I fall. I can do hard things.
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!
(Parents of Ninjas Association)
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!
This week is Kicking! Watch the youtube videos to preview your kicks and come to class with questions!
Board Breaking Class: Remember to bring your bag of beans this Wednesday and trim your nails so we can work on our spear hand strikes and chicken beaks!
For your Black Tape: Remember that you need to do a Performance 25 for each of your required forms in order to get your black tape! Watch the youtube videos to review & practice!
For your Green Tape: to pass off your green tape you need your free-sparring gear! For Green Belts and higher this means head gear & free-sparring boots as well as the gloves!
We are doing sparring hours this testing cycle! Each student who is green belt or higher needs 6 sparring hours in order to test. While sparring is not required until green belt, it is a great skill to have and can be started at white belt, so if you’re interested in getting ahead, talk to the front desk to get started today!
Updated Calendar is Live! We added the online Leadership Class and moved the online Black Belt Class, so please check to make sure you have the right times!

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.
