US BUDOKAI KARTE TINY TIGERS MOVE AHEAD!

US BUDOKAI KARATE – Tiny Tiger Spring Testing saw 5 students advance!! CONGRATULATIONS!

Kids of all ages respond to reward systems and US Budokai Karate Tiny Tigers are no different.  In order to provide further positive reinforcement to Tiny Tiger students the next round of testing will include all current students who have a minimum of 10 classes since their last test!! This means that advancement opportunities will be given to all qualifying students every 3 months.  This aligns with the reward systems already in place at our JR, Teen, and Adult level programs.

Tiny Tiger Belt System

The new belt system will be white, orange stripe, double orange stripe, gold stripe, double gold stripe, green stripe, double green stripe, purple stripe, and double purple stripe! Students age out of Tiny Tigers by 7 years old.  Whatever rank achieved in Tiny Tigers is transferred to the JR level program and students then begin to advance to JR Black Belt!! It’s an exciting transition!

Looking for more ways to incorporate reward systems at home?  Check out this article from Very Well Family: HOW TO CREATE A REWARD SYSTEM FOR KIDS THAT WORKS!

A Tiny Tiger trial of 2 weeks can change a life forever!  Increased self-control, respect, and coordination are just a few of the benefits!! We teach kids to be good little people!

US BUDOKAI KARATE LIFE SKILL CHALLENGES

US BUDOKAI KARATE LIFE SKILL: DISCIPLINE!

LEADERSHIP PROGRAM LAUNCHES!

Leadership is a life skill all martial arts schools profess to teach but US Budokai is taking this even further with a personal development program for kids and teens!  Within a framework of martial art skills, our program is specifically designed to challenge kids to engage publicly and improve upon their ability to speak and present themselves with peers, adults, and in public settings.  Being able to confidently speak up for oneself and others is a key life skill!

LEADERSHIP BEGINS MONDAY MAY 9TH!!
US BUDOKAI SCHEDULE _ MAY 2022

Students may register for Leadership before OR after their regular karate class in the Member App/Portal.

Quarter Two: DISCIPLINE, the second life skill pillar! Home Challenges sheets can be found here: HOME CHALLENGES _ DISCIPLINE Students may also submit an Intent to Promote form to be considered for a Gold Stripe! Disciplined people have good habits, stay focused and help at home! (All forms are also available at the dojo.)

Leadership is: Emphasis on the “Yes I Can” mentality

The Life Skill Pillars
Honor = Honesty, the first key to an abundant life
Discipline = Obey what is right and follow the rules
Communication = The link between me and the world
Respect = It’s not what you know, or what you have, it’s what you do

Spring Kyu Graduation 2022

Spring Belt Advancements – US Budokai Karate!

SPRING GRADUATION!!

Congratulations to everyone who advanced in rank following the April 27, 2022 Kyu Belt Testing!!  The official results are here!

Physical skills are always part of the challenge when advancing in karate but this quarter drew greater attention to our pillars!!

HONOR = Honesty, the first key to a happy life!

What more did we accomplish this quarter? We learned to present ourselves with honor and dignity and the importance of not looking sloppy – belt tie challenge!!

It is our goal to help our families create a happier, less stressed, home life – how did we do this … We brushed our teeth without a fuss, got our homework done without complaint, put our devices away without being asked twice, improved our table manners and went to bed and stayed in bed & MORE!!! When we keep the promises we make, everyone is happier!!!

Here are some other strategies for teaching Honor/Honesty in the home with your child: Psychology Today – Teaching Your Kids to be Honest

GET READY for Pillar #2 – D I S C I P L I N E!!!!
