The following students have been selected to attend belt graduation on Friday, September 29th at 6:00 p.m. to advance to their next martial arts belt.

Student Reminders……..

1.Please review the next belt rank immediately to insure it is the correct rank the student will be advancing too.  Please notify me immediately if there is a mistake by texting me at 803-361-2554.  I will do my best to get the correct belt in time for graduation.

2. Graduation will start promptly at 6:00 p.m.  Students who arrive late might have to wait before being allowed on the mat.

3. All students need to wear their full uniforms.  Please be sure they are clean and not dirty and wrinkled.

4. Summer reading and attendance winners will be announced at graduation.

Important Note:

Beginning this month, the $50 belt fee will be charged directly to your account.  The fee will be scheduled for draft on September 29th.

Most of you currently use this method and quite frankly, it is really difficult and time consuming for me to keep track of who has paid their fee, how they paid and when. Some pay early, some pay at graduation and I always seem to be following up with a few that have just forgot.  This way it is much more organized.

If this new process creates a problem for you, please be sure to see me at least 48 hours before graduation.

Hopefully this simplified process will save you time and effort as well as me.


Our new curriculum books have arrived.  Starting October 1st, students will be responsible for tracking their progress in their curriculum books and will need to be prepared to test for their next belt stripe.  More details will follow.  More details will follow.
