Chamberlain Studios is excited to announce that our new Member Portal on our DallasKenpo.com website is ready to launch!

Starting THIS Wednesday April 15th, 2020, all of our Live Streaming Classes, archived online classes, and curriculum information will be housed in the Student Portal for both security purposes as well as to provide our members more value to their memberships!  We’ve added curriculum videos that have not been available previously, and more content is being added weekly!

If you have already registered for the student portal on the website, you should be good to go.  If you have not yet registered, please do so by clicking on the “Student Portal” banner in the top menu of the website (or by clicking the link below) and then filling out the simple registration form.

Only existing members/parents will be given access to this area of our website after April 15th!

The member portal is still under construction, so we welcome any feedback you may have regarding making it easier for you, our students to navigate.

Adult Belt Test Information – April 6, 2020
The Chamberlain Studios Advisory Board have determined that the best course of action for the upcoming Adult Belt Test is to run it ONLINE via Zoom.
We understand that due to Covid-19 our normal training opportunities have been interrupted, and we hope that you are all well and safe at home!  We are striving to make as many ways as possible to help you in your training, and towards your goal of Black Belt through our online streaming classes, online archived curriculum, and private lessons.  However you do it, we hope that you are finding effective ways to train at home!
Our hope is that everyone is planning on testing, but because we are all separated at this time, and the instructors are not able to see everyone on a daily/weekly basis, we are requesting 2 things from those planning on testing on June 6th.

1) Send the dojo an email to: info@dallaskenpo.com and let us know you plan on testing on June 6th.  We need this email by the END OF APRIL.  We need to know our numbers ahead of time for planning purposes as we have not run this type of test before!

2) Please take advantage of the opportunity to schedule 1x 15-minute private lesson with an instructor of your choice as soon as possible, but before THE END OF APRIL (remember, you get 1x per week!).  This is your opportunity to go over your material with the instructor and for the instructor to help you prepare for the test.

What should you expect at this test? 
You know you won’t be tested on your skill as an Uke….so, be prepared to demonstrate each of your katas multiple times for different instructors, expect to demonstrate EVERYTHING required for your rank on the curriculum, and expect to explain what you are doing in such a way that shows you understand the techniques.  Instant recall is a must (you’re not going to be able to look over your shoulder to see what your neighbor is doing)!
As always if you have specific questions or concerns regarding your training or the test, please get in touch with the dojo!
We’re In this Together!

At Chamberlain Studios, we truly consider ALL of our member families to be a part of our “Ohana”.  Ohana means “family” and we therefore believe in treating each other as family.  This means that we believe in helping each other out in times of need.  Chamberlain Studios has always given back to the community where possible, such as provide free community self defense classes, karate classes for underprivileged youth, etc.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the shutdowns placed on the city because of it, more of our Ohana are finding themselves in need of help.  As a small business, we feel the crunch, but we are blessed to have the support of you, during this time.

Now we would like to ask this:  If you are a small business owner and would like to promote your business still open to the public, send your business name, services you offer, and business address to our email: Info@DallasKenpo.com

If you are a business owner or work for a company who is HIRING right now, please send us the pertinent contact information for job seekers!(Info@DallasKenpo.com) We will send out in the next Newsletter any information we receive from our dojo family.  Thank you all in advance for helping your community and your Ohana!
