Don’t forget that Master Shirley will be teaching two seminars tomorrow afternoon. Master David Shirley is a 9th degree black belt, visiting us from Connecticut. The Kids Seminar begins at noon. The Teen and Adult Seminar begins at 1:30. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn from one of the best in our system. We are very happy to host this event.
I just wanted to give a shout out to the Heuk Choo Kwan Hapkido group at EKU. They invited me to teach a segment of their class last night. I had a blast. All of the students did an excellent job and represented their instructor Tim Roberts very well. I hope I’ll be able to join you again at some point in the future.

St. Matthews Martial Arts is very excited to announce that Master Joan Richert has been promoted to the rank of Tenth Degree Black Belt.
You have always been an excellent teacher, mentor, and friend. We are so proud that you have received this recognition. It is an exciting time to be at St. Matthews Martial Arts and you have helped inspire it all. You have meant so much to so many students over the years and all of us thank you.

St. Matthews Martial Arts will be hosting Master David Shirley. He is a Ninth Degree Black Belt and one of the Villari Dragons (the group identified as being the most knowledgeable and experienced in the organization). There is a Kids Seminar and a Teen/Adult Seminar. People that realize just how awesome this event will be, who decide to sign up early, will receive a price break (along with knowing a guaranteed space for the seminar). People that take longer to realize this is the most awesome event of 2013 (so far anyway) will have to pay extra (so sign up early). Share this on Facebook and we’ll give you a high five at the beginning or end of your class.
St. Matthews Martial Arts was on WHAS 11 this morning to help promote KidFest. We had a blast. They were so nice to us and we had so much fun. Hopefully we’ll see all of you for KidFest.
This weekend St. Matthews Martial Arts is traveling to Antioch Illinois to participate in a Villari’s Midwest Tournament. We’re excited to be invited. We’re excited to compete. It’s going to be an excellent weekend of different dojos sharing and smiling. To all students competing, Good Luck! To all students staying home, make sure to wish your instructors luck if they’re going up to compete. And to all the other schools we’re going to meet in Antioch, ready or not, here we come.
Thank you everyone that participated in the September Fun Day. We had a blast! The Birthday Bowl for November has been drawn. Any students or family who have a Birthday in December make sure to put your name, birthday and phone number on a slip so you can be drawn after the October Fun Day. Speaking of October and Fun Day, the Halloween Fun Day is coming. It’s our most popular Fun Day of the year. Kids can wear their costumes and participate in the awesomeness of Fun Day that we deliver every month. Don’t forget that you have the whole Month of October to donate towards Beards for Breast Cancer and cast your vote as to whether Master Alan gets to keep his beard. Also, to all the students attending the seminar and tournament in Antioch, polish up those forms you’re going to do Awesome. October will be a busy month for St. Matthews Martial Arts, we’re looking forward to everything!
Don’t forget to sign up for Kids Fun Day this Saturday. The Fun Day is always a blast, this month will be no exception. There are still spaces available for friends, relatives, students, and anyone else that likes to have fun. Three hours of awesomeness for all that attend: karate class, games, pizza, a karate movie, and fun (always fun).
St. Matthews Martial Arts is proud to announce a new monthly event, Power Card Fridays. It will be held every month, usually on the third Friday of the month.

This month Power Card Friday will be held on May 25, the Friday before the Fun Day. The Power Card Friday for June will be announced later this week, along with the new summer schedule.
