We have missed you guys and can’t wait to get back to class and see everyone!! Is everyone excited about the school year? Yes?? No?? We are sure you will all have a fun and successful year!
This post is to keep everyone informed on upcoming events and schedule changes.
First, we just realized there is a schedule conflict with our testing date and the next WTA sanctioned regional tournament. Due to this we will be changing the testing date to the next Saturday, September 23rd. This will allow those who want to attend this tournament to do so and we won’t begin teaching the new material prior to the tournament. Mr. Gary Jones is hosting this tournament in Hooks, Tx (Texarkana) and it is always a great, affordable event that doesn’t require an overnight stay if you do not wish to. We hope to have many students there to represent BMAA!
Next, our annual class pictures are scheduled for Wednesday, August 9th. Please sign up in the lobby for a time that is convenient for your family. If you do not want to purchase picture’s we understand but would still like you to have your photo taken to appear on our class poster for 2017.
Also, we are going to be holding a student drive the months of August and September. We will have send home cards with all the students that they can share with friends and classmates. Simply write your child’s name on the card and hand out to people you think may be interested. If anyone signs up for classes because you told them about us you will receive a free set of sparring gear!
We will be hosting a Back to School Buddy Night Friday, August 25th. Bring a friend and hangout with us at BMAA from 6-9 pm. Cost is $15 or if you bring a friend it is $10 for each of you. Cost includes pizza, drinks, tkd fun and games. Mom and Dad, you can drop the kids off and enjoy dinner out (or grocery shopping in peace?) then come back and get them at the end of the event! We will send home contact information/waiver sheets for the parents of guest the week before the event. This will be fun and an excellent opportunity to show your friends the skills you are learning at BMAA!
Please NOTE These Dates:
Class Pictures August 9th (sign-up sheet in lobby)
Back to School Buddy Night August 25th 6-9PM
No Classes Labor Day September 4th
East Texas Shoot Out (tournament) September 16th
Testing Moved to September 23rd
Any changes or additions to this schedule will be emailed and addressed at the academy.
We have a company working on new BMAA t-shirt designs and those order forms will be coming home soon. We know many of the students have grown or weren’t here when we last printed shirts. T-shirts can be worn to class during the summer months and on Saturdays throughout the year.
Thank you and please let us know if we can be of any help as you guys adjust to the new school year!
Thanks for your time,
