New Schedule?!

Well, it's been awhile since I've blogged, but here we go...

Lots of stuff coming up for the summer!  Don't forget summer camp is on for the last 2 weeks in July (the 20th-31st)!  Anyone who attends BOTH weeks of summer camp will be able to test for a new belt on Friday, July 31st (some exceptions may apply for some of the more advanced belts, but 2 weeks of straight training will get you a whole heckuva lot closer to testing!)

Also, Parent's Night Out is coming up soon:  this Saturday, April 25th from 6:30-11pm here at BOOM!

Spring is Spring-ing!

Well, March is coming to a close, and, as always, there's a lot of exciting stuff happening here at BOOM!

First off, belt testing and graduation is coming up on Saturday, March 29th.  Li'l Dragons will belt test in class this week, and everyone who passes will get their belts at the Li'l Dragons graduation on Saturday, March 29th @ 3:00 at the Bellingham BOOM!
Yellow thru Advanced Purple Belts will test @ 4:00
Beginning Blue through Advanced Green @ 5:30
Beginning Brown and Above:  7:00

Schedule Change for November

Well, snap, October's almost gone.  A lot of you guys have come pretty far in the one month since you belt tested.  Most impressive!  

Don't forget:  next week is Halloween, and all students can wear their costumes to class ALL WEEK LONG (sidebar:  BOOM! will be closed on Thursday October 31st.  Mr Moench has been volunteering at the Sudden Valley Halloween Carnival for a few years now.  If anyone cares to stop by, it's in the Dance Barn from 6-8.  There's lots of really fun games, lots and lots of candy, prizes, contests, and a general awesome party!

TEAMWORK Homework, end of summer stuff

Well, it's hard to believe, but summer's about ready to wrap up....  The back-to-school sales are starting, but at least the weather is still nice!

The BOOM! Homework Challenge is officially on!  Turn in your homework every month ON TIME for a year, and you get a trip to the waterslides!  That being said, here is the homework for July:  TEAMWORK.  If anyone missed it:








Mr Moench

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.

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:
