Discipline – To Obey What Is Right!


Discipline, according to Dictionary.com…

1. training to act in accordance with rules; drill: military discipline.
2. activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill;training: “A daily stint at the typewriter is excellent discipline for a writer.”
3. punishment inflicted by way of correction and training.
4. the rigor or training effect of experience, adversity, etc.: “the harsh discipline of poverty.”
5. behavior in accord with rules of conduct; behavior and order maintained by training and control: “good discipline in an army.”
6. a set or system of rules and regulations.

This semester is all about DISCIPLINE and SELF-DISCIPLINE.
Part of developing good self-discipline is to make sure you attend class regularly.
Another part is doing your best when you are there.
And, still another is paying close attention to your instructor and following directions.
And, maybe the most important aspect of self-discipline is keeping your commitments and promises.
Sounds simple, but like many other things, it is much harder in practice.
Let’s all make a commitment to ourselves, inside and outside our academy, to focus on these 3 principles of self-discipline:
1. Commit to showing up for everything 15 minutes early – classes, work, appointments, etc.
2. Commit to working at a level 10 in everything you do – work, school, chores, your relationships, parenting, being a good kid, etc.
3. Commit to giving people your full attention – eye contact, facial expression, good listening skills, practice opening your ears more and closing your mouth more, etc.
Just imagine a world where people are more punctual, hard working, and listen to others with greater interest and intensity.  It starts with us, as future black belt leaders, setting the example.  You can change the world with your example, if you make it infectious.

2015 Jan/Feb Semester


Dear Students,

I hope your holidays were fun and full of family festivities.  2014 was a fantastic year and we look forward to an even better 2015.

We do have class this Tuesday, 12/30/14, and our staff is cooking up some extra special fun holiday workouts for you to celebrate the last class of 2014.  Read below for details about the weekend.  This would be a great time to work off all those holiday calories!

The 2015 Jan/Feb Semester curriculum is ready for you to download and post on your fridge.

Class Schedule 2015-Semester 1

This semester we feature the life skill of HONESTY – “The first key to an abundant life“.  More about this important topic will be announced in classes.

In the attached semester curriculum, you will find notes about…

  • Important dates, closings, and holidays
  • Required equipment for classes
  • Testing requirements and graduation date

VERY IMPORTANT!  Test registration is absolutely due by Sunday, February 9th so that we can order belts properly.  Use this link to get to the test registration or go to the calendar in our student portal and search for the ‘event’ TEST REGISTRATION on 2/19/15.

ALSO VERY IMPORTANT! Our staff is always ready and eager to teach, but whether we have a class on Saturday, January 3rd (given that it is a holiday weekend) is all up to you.  How will we know?  Go to the calendar on our student portal and register for the correct class if you plan to attend before Friday, January 2nd at 6pm.  It’s very easy and free, but if we don’t have enough students to host the classes that day, then our staff will get the day off (Boo!).  We will call those who have registered if anything changes, but if you aren’t, then don’t blame us if you show up at the last minute to find the door locked.  Future black belt leaders exercise discipline by planning ahead and following directions.

Happy New Year to All!
