TIME: 10:30-10:55 AM

CONTENT: Students will be offered up fun active games, drills, and challenges that will serve to introduce them to basic warm-ups/mobility exercises and very basic calithetics that help develop speed, strength, coordination and timing.

Obstacle courses and exposure to traditional Martial Arts, Parkour, Gymnastics, and Fitness calisthenics and equipment will be incorporated into each class as well. The instructor will work Martial Arts skill-work in as developmentally possible, with an emphasis on blocks to protect the head, kicks and punches with proper alignment, and rolling – all with an emphasis on safety. Students will also learn grab counters, beginning Jiu-Jistu positions, and beginning sparring skills (the sport of ring sparring involves controlled partner work, and “kiss-touch” contact to the body).

COST: The cost is $110 for 6 weeks of instruction with a $25 family or gym member discount for additional siblings, or if someone else in the family already is a SWPMA/CFH member. Registration fees are non-refundable.

PREPARATION AND PARTICIPATION: Families will be highly encouraged to take care of bathroom and water needs prior to arrival. Students may wear whatever they are comfortable moving in, and bare feet. We do not require uniforms or charge any additional fees beyond the series fee. Students are welcome to salute on the floor at 10:30 AM, and will attend class until 10:55AM, with group clean-up taking place from 10:50-10:55AM (prior to debriefing & saluting out).

This series will take place at our new campus, at 6315 SW Capitol Highway. For safety, please park in the upper lot across from Hillsdale Liquor and Jade Dragon. The lower lot closer to Bank of America can be extremely aggressive.

Registration + payment functions to secure your spot at this event. Each year we have enjoyed an increasingly great turnout; start helping promote “early and often,” and we should knock it out of the park again this year! Do not wait to register…there are more schools in the area than slots, and this event has only grown over time.

The spirit of this event is intended to be one of inclusivity/unity and helpfulness. While we will be sandwiching 20 amazing preschools into one open-plan gym space, there certainly is room enough for everyone’s program to shine! We celebrate the diversity of our schools,
and are pleased to offer you all a space to offer up information and help families determine a “best-fit” program for their children!

Vendors may set up as early as noon. Please only bring tables that are 5′ in length max. We will not be able to provide vendors with electrical outlets. Families don’t much care about slideshows…they mainly just want to meet school reps and talk, face-to-face. ***NO PRODUCT SALES, OR SCHOOL SERVICE SALES allowed at this event. It’s all about you and your amazing schools! In other words, nobody should be tabling or walking around hustling/interrupting you, to sell you stuff;)

We are hosting a short “point sparring only” tournament at our new space on Saturday, July 20th from 10am-11am.

The goal is to give students from the three MDP schools (and hopefully a few kids from outside schools) an event that motivates them to continue progressing in their martial arts skills, even during the lazy days of summer. And of course, to acknowledge the awesomeness of summer, after the event, we will walk over to the park, eat popsicles (that we provide) and hang out for a half hour.

Divisions will be created the day of the event. We will do our best to sort students in groups that are of similar age, size, and skill level. We will use a double elimination format to ensure that each student gets a minimum of 2 matches. Medals will be handed out for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in all divisions.

Sliding scale admission means parents are welcome to pay what they feel they can afford: 10 or 15 dollars.
