Yet another new graduation record

ATA Martial Arts & Kids Karate of Lakeville

We have 165 of our taekwondo students registered for spring color belt graduation this week.  This is the most ever, and is the latest "most ever" since the school has opened.  (The previous record was last winter.)  Students of all grades, from white belts to red (decided) belts will be showing off what they've learned in the past three months to advance to the next belt.  They will be demonstrating their forms, use of weapons, board breaking, and self defense to move to the next level.

If you'd like to see us, we'll be in one of the gyms in Boeckman Middle School in Farmington.  (Enter from the north parking lot.)  The event starts at 6:00 p.m., but get there early for a good seat and stay to cheer on all our improving martial artists!

Achievement unlocked: 2014 Sioux City Tournament

ATA Martial Arts & Kids Karate of Lakeville

This weekend, nearly a dozen of our martial arts students participated in the Sioux City Regional Tournament.  While not everyone got first place in their respective events, everyone had a good time competing with their respective bests, visiting friends, and watching the other competitors.  Congrats to everyone!

Before we left, we fell en masse to the nearest Perkins for a very late lunch or early dinner.  We have proof: (Facebook access required to see picture):

One Hundred Twenty-Seven Pounds

ATA Martial Arts & Kids Karate of Lakeville

During our holiday sale before Thanksgiving 2013, we asked shoppers (students of our academy) to bring in food to donate to the local food shelf.  Thanks to the generosity of our taekwondo families, we were able to give 127 pounds of nonperishable food to help those in need.  We're very proud of our families and their generosity during the holidays!

Goals for the New Year

ATA Martial Arts & Kids Karate of Lakeville

Students at ATA Leadership Martial Arts are setting our goals for the year. We are making two relevant goals each for

  • our personal life
  • our martial arts, and
  • our school or job.

These goals should be something that can be measured.  "Get better at martial arts" is nice, but how much better?  Earn your brown belt?  Have a perfect side kick?  Compete in a tournament?  Be specific, and make the goals a little beyond what you think you can easily do.

We're using this to write them down.  (You're more likely to remember them if you write them down.)  Our students will keep one copy for themselves to remind them,, and they'll give one copy to Mr. Raberge.  (You're more likely to acheive your goals if you tell someone else.)  We'll check back on our students later in the year to see how they're coming along.

Let's make 2014 the year when we really move ahead!
