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!

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.

Check your rank when you sign in for classes!

Make sure your attendances are counting for your current rank.

Drop-Off & Pick-Up:

  • Please follow the arrows for flow of traffic!
  • Do not leave your vehicle in the Loading Zone. 
  • Do not block the Drive-Thru Lane.

    Ian Evans: They had a great Christmas spent with family. He still has some nerve damage that causes his eyes to be crossed. The doctors are hoping it will fix by itself, but there is no guarantee. He has a couple of doctors appointments this month to see how everything is healing. They could use some help getting Clayton (his older brother) to and from Black Belt Class on Tue. & Thurs. For anyone that would like to help or donate, talk to Master Sorenson.

    Color Belt Ho-Sin-Sul (street self defense) Class on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm! Excited about self defense but don’t feel like you have enough time to practice? This class is for you! We will practice and polish all color belt self defense to achieve a higher level of Taekwondo performance by playing a lot of self defense games that will improve your understanding of self defense at every level! (Must be in BBC program minimum to attend).

    We’re Hiring! We are looking for Preschool Teachers, After School Program Teachers, and a front desk manager. If you’re interested in making a difference in the lives of families and children, please give us a call at 801-796-0412.

    Sign up to get reminder texts from us! Just text “@bstann” to the number “81010” to be added to the list. We send out quick last minute reminders for BST events, close dates, and due dates so you never miss out on important info!   

    Parents, please check your child’s attendance regularly. As a general rule, if a student is at the studio during a class they are eligible to attend, they should be on the mat, but that is not always the case, nor are we able to know every child that is supposed to be in class. Thus, if your child is missing hours when they should have been at the studio then please have a discussion about (1) signing in to class, or (2) being in class when they should be. If this necessitates you coming into the studio and making sure your child signs in and enters the class, then please make arrangements for that to happen until they are able to do it on their own. We know that building habits and being disciplined are key, and we hope you will help us as we strive to teach our youth responsibility, consequences, and many other tools for success!

    Preschool  for the 2021/2022 school year is in session! We are certified to accept state subsidies for child care for those who are eligible. We have AM, PM, and full day schedules available. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today! Call to schedule a free, no pressure tour, or Register for Preschool here!

    Tired of hauling your gear to and from the studio, or worse, leaving it at home and getting to do pushups? If this sounds like you, then we have a solution! Big enough to hold your uniform, gloves, and sparring gear,  our on-site lockers can be rented for just $7.50/month or $60/year! Availability is limited, so if you want one, talk to the front desk today!
