Good Morning Everyone

Here is some tips for the 2013 Black Belt Candidates to help them prepare for their June grading.

  1. Keep up to date with all your physical requirements on a daily basis. Don’t fall behind in anything.
  2. Start at a moderate training level and build up the intensity as grading gets closer so you don’t burn out early.
  3. Try to peak around the first of JUne so you are well prepared for your grading in mid June
  4. Remember there is Saturday morning classes for the candidates at 7:15am to 8:15am as well as Sunday mornings at 8:30am to 9:30am. These are great classes for working your conditioning and getting some of your physical requirements out of the way.
  5. Don’t forget we have fitness kickboxing available for any of you 12 years old or over. These are great classes for your cardio, push ups, squats, sit ups, and kicking requirements.
  6. Start and finish all your other projects early. Don’t let everything to the last minute.
  7. If you need any help or have questions ask your mentor. They are here to help you.
  8. Make sure all your techniques are super clean. Watch the black belts that have the super clean techniques and try to follow in their example.
  9. Nutrition is a key factor in conditioning. Clean up your eating habits. Need some help, please ask me.
  10. Take this grading very seriously. If you are not up to par there is a chance you may not pass.
  11. When you are in class take it seriously. No small chat. You do not have time to talk and get better at the same time.
  12. As Black Belts or future black belts you have to set a positive example for others to follow. Others should look to be more like you. Take that responsibility seriously.
  13. Focus on remembering everything you are suppose to know without thought. You need to know your stuff inside and out.

ALso I am currently working on a project that should be of great help and benefit to everyone. I strongly urge you to take part and utilize it when it becomes available shortly.

Once again your Black Belt Prep classes are every Saturday at 7:15am and Sunday at 8:30am for a hour or so each.

That’s it for today
