Word of the Week:

Focus

“Focus means eliminating distractions, not just from other people, but the things we do to distract ourselves.” – Catherine Pulsifer

Focus is when you ignore one thing so that you can give more attention to something else. This can take a lot of self control, especially with how busy the world around us is. It’s easy to let ourselves get distracted, but this doesn’t help us reach our goals. Instead, we need to take responsibility and consciously decide what we want to focus on, because only then will we be on a straight course to where we actually want to go.

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.


PONA’s Facebook Group: We have a Facebook group called PONA (Parents of Ninjas Association). The following link is where BST parents can request access to the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BSTPONA/

Safety First - Look both ways before going out into parking lot!

There are lots of cars in the parking lot and lots of parents dropping off and picking up kids. Remember this when you are running out to your car and make sure it is safe before you step into the parking lot!

Bring a water bottle to classes!

We want to stay hydrated for peak performance, but waiting around to get drinks can use up a lot of 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!

Students who ride their bikes have a place to lock them up! Please make sure you do bring a bike lock, and remember to take bikes home each night. We don’t want bikes to go missing!

Parent Association – PONA (Parents of Ninjas Association)

Some parents have expressed an interest in creating a parent association here at BST. There is a letter explaining areas where parents can volunteer at the front desk, as well as sign ups posted in the hall. If you have any questions please contact Mr. Waterlyn. You can get his contact info at the front desk, or email us at Beyondsportsutah@gmail.com and we can forward it to you.

No wearing shoes or eating on the mat please!

The mat is a special place reserved for practicing Taekwondo, and we need to remember to respect that space by taking care of it. Both wearing shoes and eating food 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 and shoes need to stay off the mat!

Remember to bow when you go on and off the mat.

This is a way we show respect to our environment. We are so blessed to have such a clean, big training area, and we need to make sure we are showing our gratitude.  

Remember to show respect by saying "Yes Ma'am/Sir"

A huge part of showing respect is simply acknowledging when someone has spoken to you. Please remember to use this skill when you’re here at BST, and you can even surprise your teachers and parents by using it outside the studio as well!”

Pushups are a consequence, not a punishment!

When students are late they miss part of the warm up, so they get to do pushups to make that up! Be on time so that you can warm up properly and avoid injury!

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.
