May Homework and stuff

It's getting close to that time again already.... Belt testing and graduation is coming up at the end of June!  Intent to Test forms will go out in class the first week of June.  Students, make sure you've got all your homework handed in, if you need another copy of April or May homework, it's here on the BOOMBlog:

April Homework, May Stuff

Well, the weather's heating up, and summer is right around the corner!  BOOM! has got some exciting stuff going down over the next little bit, so be sure not to miss out!

Coming up on Saturday, May 11th is Parent's Night Out!  From 6:30 to 11pm at the Bellingham BOOM!  We'll be doing some awesome Jedi Training; Vadering, using the Force, and of course, lightsaber training!  Everybody who attends Parent's Night Out will also be able to construct their own lightsaber!

Homeworks!

Hey, BOOM!  just started posting all the homeworks on the website.  For this quarter, that includes the homework for MODESTY, ASSERTIVENESS, and HEALTH & HYGIENE.  Click the links below to download them as a .pdf file; so it should work with whatever!

Bellingham G.O. & Belt Testing

It's about that time again!  Belt testing will be held on Friday, September 28th @ 5:30 for KIDS AND TEENS ONLY!! LI'l Dragons will belt test IN CLASS the week of September 24th, then attend the graduation ceremony, which will begin as soon as the Kids and Teens testing ends on Friday (which should be around 7:00pm or so).  

The Notice of Intent to Test will be handed out in class the first week of September.  They are due back to BOOM! by Friday, September 21st.  These forms need to be filled out by your parents AND teachers (hey, first impressions are important!

Bellingham BOOM

Well, now it's official!! Got the place, wrote the checks, got the keys, and the mats and gear (and mirrors!) are on their way!  Bellingham, here comes the BOOM!  Check out theschedulefor the class times.  To all current BOOM! students in Sudden Valley:  yes, the schedule will change.  And, no, nobody likes that.  If I could only clone myself...the thought is...terrifying. 

Classes for the Bellingham location will start up on Tuesday, September 4th.  I know, it's not that far off.

Moving Forward...

Hello everyone

As I'm sure you've heard by now, Mr Rice is longer with BOOM!  I wish him and Mr Schultsmeier all the best as they continue their martial arts instruction in Bellingham.  

As BOOM! moves forward, I just wanted to let those people who were waiting on the Bellingham school to know that it has not been scrapped.  It's just gonna be a little longer.  I'd appreciate any feedback from parents or students about either location.  As things stand now, I am considering a school in Bellingham for classes on Monday, Wednesday, Friday; with the Sudden Valley location holding classes Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

June Belt Testing

BOOM

In the interest of not using the Sudden Valley facilities longer than we're supposed to, we're gonna make a few changes for belt testing this time around.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.  All students will receive a handout in class today with this information, so here we go:

All belt testing for Kids and Teens will be held Friday, June 29th @ 5:30 in the Dance Barn.  This will be followed immediately by graduation at 7:15.  Belt testing for Li'l Dragons will be done IN CLASS that week  (however, Li'l Dragons classes will be 60 minutes, instead of 40, that week).

Getting warmer...

Well, I guess mid-60's is warm for Sudden Valley.  So, BOOM!'s coming to Bellingham soon, and we'll be seen in town a bit more-don't worry, Sudden Valley, we'll still be here for you....

Buuuuuuut, join at the Junior Ski 2 Sea Parade on May 18th @ 6:00pm!  Checkherefor the official Junior Ski 2 Sea Parade page.  Basically, we'll get together at the parade route, then march down it together!  It should be a blast!  Come on down, wear your uniform or your BOOMShirt and get in on some of this parade!

Early April Stuff

As Spring starts to poke its head out (a little), we've got a lot of exciting things coming up as the weather warms!

First off, Spring Break Camp is this week (April 2nd-6th).  Padded weapons fighting is the theme, and it will be AWESOME!  Parents:  The Camp runs from 9am-3pm.  Campers will need their uniform and belt, as well as some comfortable clothes they can move around in.  They'll also need a lunch, snack, and a water bottle.  The drop off schedule for Spring Break Camp is as follows:

Tutorial Videos

First of all, big ups to all of those who survived TIP Testing in January.  And when I say survived, I mean it!  It was tough training, especially right after that week off!  I think what impressed me the most was how much everybody stepped up!  People sweated, people cried, people had to try it three or four times, but people DIDN'T GIVE UP.  That's what it's all about, folks.  Persistence.  Sometimes I think that's the only reason I got that black belt: I was just too stubborn to stop.
