We have an Open House the week of Sep 28-Oct 1 during the regular hours. You can bring a friend or family member to class during this week at no cost.
Share the benefits of martial arts training with others. Get involved.
OCPE – Off Campus Physical Education
We are certified to offer OCPE for AISD, which is middle school and high school credit for physical education. There is no additional cost for this program. Ask for details.
Notes from Mrs. K.
You have probably heard Mr. K saying “lose your belt in class, lose a stripe!” It is less about the belt itself and more about properly taking care of your appearance, etc. It provides a better learning environment: Wearing clothing properly is for emphasis in supporting your team and your Journey. It is intended to provide safety and consistency for everyone.
Wear uniform and belt properly: Tuck in your T-shirt under the jacket.
You have options: Too hot in uniform? You can train in Journey T-shirts.
Cycle tenet is Self-control. Self-control is the ability of a martial artist to both mentally and physically control own actions in all circumstances
