Word of the Week:
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right.” – Henry Ford
Your brain loves to be right, and will do whatever it can to make what you believe a reality. This is called the self-fulfilling prophesy. That is why it is so important to watch what you say and think. Saying, “I’m bad at forms (or kicking, or rolls, or whatever),” makes it hard to give your best effort, which sabotages your practice. Instead, tell yourself that you can do it, you just have to practice. This lets your brain know that it is okay to give a full effort. You will be surprised at how quickly you improve once your brain stops getting in the way.

Demo Team Fundraiser 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 July. 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. They will be holding fundraisers this summer, including the car wash this Saturday from 11-3, where they will happily wash your car if you are able to stop by. 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 11-3 window. Thank you for your support!

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.
