Summertime Schedule Changes

We are gearing up for a bit of an overhaul to our schedule for the summer months and beyond.  The biggest changes are coming to the kids classes and age groups. We are altering our age divisions as follows: Mini’s (Kids ages 3 and 4) will have a class on Saturday mornings from 10:00 to 10:30, Kids Ages 5 to 9 will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00 to 6:00, and Kids ages 10 to 14 will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:00 to 6:30.  Along with these changes will be some necessary changes to the program itself, since we will no longer be offering a seperate Kids Jiu Jitsu program. Instead, all of our kids programs will cover the core skills and practical self defense techniques from both Kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu styles of martial art. 

On Mondays and Wednesdays, the Adult Kickboxing classes will be moved forward to 6:30 and 7:30.  Our Advanced Jiu Jitsu and Submission Wrestling classes, which meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays respectively, will also be moved forward to 7:00. Friday Adult classes will be moved an hour earlier as well, with Kickboxing at 5:00 and Jiu Jitsu at 6:00. Finally, Saturday Jiu Jitsu will be pushed back to 10:30 to make room for our new Mini’s pre-skills program!

We hope that the simplified kids program and changes in class times will make it easier for students to keep up with training through the busy summer months and beyond! If you have any questions about any of the changes and how they might effect you, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email, text, call or in person at the dojo! Changes take effect as of Monday July 9th.

Summer Demo Opportunities!

The Fox Lake Movie Theater has been kind enough to invite us back this summer for two demonstrations as part of the Wednesday Morning Movie series!  The first demo will be on June 20th, and the second will be on August 8th.  We ask that all students who are interested in participating in either or both demonstrations let Sensei Rob know.  We will meet at the theater on demo days at 8:45am, the demo will run from 9:00 to 10:00 and all students and parents will be treated to a free showing of that morning’s movie.  June 20th, they will be showing Despicable Me 3, and August 8th will be a surprise movie.  We hope to see you there!

Spring Apparel Pre-orders

We're getting ready to place an order for T-shirts and Spring apparel!  This is your chance to order any school apparel in the color and style of your choice! Once again we will be offering the basic school shirts at our pre-order rate of 2 for $30 (regular price is $20).  We will also discount any other apparel pre-order by 10%. Let us know what you want and we will get you a price.  Availability may vary, so keep a back up color option in mind.

 

The logo color will again be red and silver, so please choose shirt color options accordingly. For example, the silver in the logo doesn't show up very well against a lighter background so darker is better.  Similarly, redder tones might wash out the red of the logo.

Please email your orders to us at ScholarWarriorMMA@gmail.com. The deadline to pre-order is February 28th.

December Kickboxing Special

your first month of training! 

Our Kickboxing program covers all aspects of striking, beginning with basic self defense then Boxing, followed by Kickboxing.  From there we explore the wonderful world of outfighting, where we begin outside of striking range and find ways to quickly close distance including how to get opponents to do the work for us by drawing them in through the use of footwork and feints.  Our intermediate and advanced students go on to study the complex arts of infighting with a focus on the clinch striking of Muay Thai as well as the takedowns of wrestling.  Both the use of and defense against takedowns while out in the open is also covered.  We round out our program with the open hand strikes and advanced kicking of traditional martial arts systems.  From the traditional arts we also use the balance, stance work, weapons and flexibility training as active recovery and cool downs.

These classes build physical attributes such as power, flexibility, balance and agility while also building the long proven life skills of discipline, respect, determination and goal setting.
