Kamikaze News


It’s an exciting New Year!  The Sensei anticipate that we will have a plenty of excellent training and fun events to come. We will be organizing some new planning committees as well as a competition club and hopefully adding some new classes. We are looking forward to working with everyone and helping each student achieve their goals! ~Sensei

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SETTING GOALS

This is the time of year that people look at their goals for the coming year. Usually we apply these goals to health, school, work, home etc. With the great intention of Improving ourselves and our world.  There is an old saying, “ The road to despair is paved with good intentions” Our New Years Resolutions are usually derailed by self doubt and the simple act of giving up on our intentions and dreams.

Believing in negative thoughts is the single greatest obstruction to success.

Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass - to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.

A+ Karate After School

After School Program
A.S.K.  – AFTER SCHOOL KARATE AND TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM
A.S.K.  – AFTER SCHOOL KARATE AND TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM 

The Prescott Valley area, as with all areas of the U.S. has a number of children that go home alone after school. Although being home alone for some kids can build confidence and self-reliance, unfortunately not all kids will gain those results.

Many kids need supervision and attention, many kids need exercise and social interaction as well as help with their academic studies, and many kids would love to learn Karate but are unable to get to a class because of parents work schedules.

ShinPu-Ren Family Karate offers an After School Karate and Transportation Program. This is a terrific alternative to day care or babysitters and especially to simply being left alone. This program provides transportation for your child from their educational facility after dismissal to our Dojo up to five days per week. This includes early dismissal days.

Our unique after school program channels after school energy into a positive, productive afternoon of supervised homework, fun activities and quality martial arts training. A.S.K. students are able to stay at the Dojo up until 7:30 pm, which makes it very convenient for working parents.

We will accommodate students in grades 1-8 from the Prescott Valley School district area including charter schools.

We can pick students up as few as 1 day per week or as many as 5 day’s per week. The cost is simply our normal tuition price and a $5.00 per day pick up charge for each day we pick your child up from their academic facility.

On teacher in service days and Federal Monday holidays we offer our Dojo Day camp for a $20.00 charge to keep the kids busy and safe all day from 7am- 7:30 pm

 to see all of the rules and guidelines for this program, then contact us by e-mail or phone for more information and to get your child registered for the A.S.K. program
