Kids’ Belt Test – December 18, 2020
Our next Kids’ belt test is December 18, 2020 at 6:30 PM, online over Zoom. Consult the Student Portal for details for how to login for the test.
Once your child has earned all 6 colored stripes on their belt (Blue, Red, Green, Yellow, White & Black), they will be invited by their instructor to test. If you have questions regarding your child’s readiness to test, please speak with your child’s primary instructor or send us a message at: Info@DallasKenpo.com
Remember that the Student Portal has video instruction for most curriculum techniques & kata (forms), and more are being added weekly. This is a great resource for your kids to review their skills before the test. Also, don’t forget to schedule their weekly 15min Online Private lessons!
Blue Stripe = Kata (forms)
Red Stripe = Punch Defenses
Green Stripe = Grab Defenses
Yellow Stripe = Weapon Defenses
White Stripe = Book Reports & Vocabulary
Black Stripe = Grappling
Attention Bachman Lake Students!
We will be saying good-bye to our Hombu (Bachman Lake) Dojo at the end of this month.
The final classes at the Bachman Dojo will be Tuesday 12/22 for the kids classes and Wednesday 12/23 for the Adult Classes.
We are very sad to lose the building we’ve been in for so long, BUT we are happy to let our students know that you still have a place to train! Our long term plan is to move our Bachman classes to the Walnut Hill Recreation Center, however that building is still under construction due to the Tornado last Fall.
In the meantime, until the Rec Center is available, we are moving our Bachman Classes to the “My Martial Arts” studio just down the street at: 3641 W Northwest Hwy #150, Dallas, TX 75220. The owner, Tony Rios was kind enough to let us share his space!
The billing for current Bachman students will remain the same through the dojo until it is time to switch to the Rec Center. At that point students will need to register for classes through the Walnut Hill Rec Center directly (we will let you know when this needs to happen). For now, if you wish to cancel or pause your membership you will need to fill out & return the “Stop My Billing” form at least 2 weeks prior to the next billing date
(the 1st of each month).
Here are the class times for the Bachman classes moving to My Martial Arts January 2nd, 2021:
Tu & Thu
4:15p – 4:45p (Kids Age 4-6)
5:15p – 5:45p (Kids Age 7-11 Beginners/Int)
6:15p – 6:45p (Kids Age 7-11 Adv & Tweens)
7:30p – 8:30p (Adults)
2:30p- 3p (Kids Age 4-6)
3p – 3:30p (Kids Ages 7-11 all ranks)
3:30p – 4:30p (Adults)
Annual New Year’s Day Training 20201
This year we’re doing things a little different for our New Year’s Day workout. To stay socially distanced we’re going to be working on Shaolin Fighting Stick, a two-person kata which lets us stay 6 feet apart and still have some fun!
Bring your bo staff, shoes, mask, and water and let’s start 2021 off right!
