It seems like it wasn’t that long ago that I wrote about our Salt Lake City Utah Martial Arts school’s sixth year anniversary. Now, a year later, I’m scratching my head wondering how quick things have passed by.
So, without any further ado, happy seven anniversary Arrowhead Martial Arts Studio!
The past year was a great year for our Kenpo studio. We had a lot of new students join us, so much so that we had to create a waiting list last June. To all those who have been patiently waiting to get in, I thank you for hanging in there. As you know, I did this to keep the instruction and attention levels high at my studio so my students never got lost in the shuffle. Know that once you make it in, you too will get the same level of care and consideration.
We also started our monthly martial arts newsletter to which we have received a lot of great feedback and comments. Each month there are tips, news, and info you can’t find on our website. If you haven’t signed up yet, I suggest you check it out.
I also became a more active martial arts blogger so that our students could get even more information and details outside of class. It’s been great to see all of the comments our students and other people have left. All I can say is keep it up as it helps motivate me to write! I have several more posts I’m wrapping up that I think you’ll enjoy.
Several of our assistant instructors are about to test for black belt. It’s an exciting time for these people and it has been great to see their progress as they move to higher levels in the art. I can’t wait to welcome them into the black belt ranks!
I’m also impressed with the dedication and passion our students have for the art and how focused they are in class. Several students have gone up in the ranks with more testing in the near future. All I can say is – treat every class like it’s a test night as it very well could be!
To all my students, assistant instructors, and instructors – Thank you for training at my Kenpo studio and for being so loyal, dedicated, and passionate. It is truly humbling for me to be your instructor.
Here’s to another great year!
