MARTIAL ARTS FOR BOTH CHILDREN AND ADULTS!

Martial Arts in Bradenton

What’s Up This Week, March 25th, 2024 at Ancient Ways Martial Arts Academy

Hey folks, no video this week, I’m busy running a GREAT Spiring Break Camp with some amazing kiddos. We love running camps, but they make for long days for us. I’m here from 7 am until 9:30 PM. Martial arts gives me energy and keeps me excited throughout long days like this. Master Brennon is on vacation, Mr. Noah is out today, Mr. Edward is recovering from an injury, so we are thankful to have the help of our Black Belts like Miss Zoey Dufour.

Zoey started with us in 2018 and grew up doing martial arts. She earned her Black Belt in 2022

Her favorite hobbies are Martial arts, (of course) and reading. She is super smart and sets a perfect example for our younger students in her hard work and great attitude, not to mention her high level of skill. Zoey is instrumental in helping her parents (grandparents) and being there for them. Make sure to say “Hi” to her and feel free to ask her to help you if you need some extra practice.  

We are about to finish up our Shamrock Fundraiser for March and hope you can dig deep and donate big. In my 42 years of teaching, I’ve had several Black Belts pass on and we honor them by offering this fund to help students who need some assistance. Remember, it isn’t just a donation, we are giving you something of equal value to your donation. Purchase a shamrock and you get whatever is on the other side and we donate the money to the fund. It’s a good way to get a renewal or upgrade. We will match what you paid and put that money into the scholarship fund to help those less fortunate.

This week is Spring Break for Manatee County Public schools, but that only affects us as we have a camp going during the day. It will not interfere with any of our classes and our schedule will run like normal. Many of our students are adults, they don’t get a spring break, so we will not change our schedule. Our Morning adult classes on Tuesday and Thursday will still happen along with the Zoom Hybrid classes.

Classes this week will focus on Kaizen. Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning ongoing and constant improvement. Setting goals is one thing, achieving them is another, but the next step is resetting the goal, so we continue to get better. It’s why we earn Black Belts and embrace the martial arts as a lifestyle focused on self improvement and self awareness.

This is week 2 of our semester and we will be testing for our Orange Stripes on week 4, so practice those kicks and punches at home. IF you are out of town on Spring Break, make sure you practice and attend extra classes when you get back to make up for missed time, and to prepare for your next belt.

This Saturday from Noon until 2 PM I a offering a special bootcamp just for our Red Seniors (Black Belt are welcome to come too, their help is appreciated). This bootcamp is a “burn in” event where we will take a small series of techniques and repeat them hundreds of times, to burn them into our muscle memory. We will offer these each month ongoing with a different theme each month.  This month is Grab Defenses and next month will be Forms 6-9. We expect to do every technique 100 times each. Red Seniors, don’t miss it. It’s only $20 and you will gain so much from it. It is FREE for Black Belts!

That’s all I had to go over this week. I’m looking forward to being on the training floor with you this week, Grandmaster, out!
