Go Beyond the Ordinary
Empower Your Family
Empower the World
Word of the Week:
“Exercise to stimulate, not to annihilate. The world wasn’t formed in a day, and neither were we. Set small goals and build upon them.”– Lee Haney
To grow, we need to push ourselves, but not overextend ourselves. You are the only one who knows where that line is for you, and it is your job to keep yourself safe. That said, you should be sweating in every class, and if you aren’t, you may need to look at how hard you’re really pushing yourself and see if you need to take it up a notch.

We are a NO PEANUTS Facility! We have a number of students who could go into anaphylactic shock if they even smell or touch peanuts, so we ask that you do not bring anything containing peanuts to the studio, and if you handle or eat nuts before you come, please wash your hands. Thank you for helping us keep each other safe!
The next PONA meeting is TBD
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.
Safety First - Look both ways before going out into 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!
Parent Association – PONA (Parents of Ninjas Association)
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.
Remember to show respect by saying "Yes Ma'am/Sir"
Pushups are a consequence, not a punishment!

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.
