March was a prep month here at SMA. We were getting set for our next belt test, getting ready for summer camps, cardio kick start, our KSL Pop Up Boutique and are gearing up for our next tournament on Saturday, April 23.
Our Summer Camp registration opened to SMA students and the public. We are offering 2 – 1 week full/half day session in July and August. If you are interested in joining us, please register online or in person. There are limited spaces available for each week. Don’t miss out!
On March 18 and 19, Mrs. Morris attended a training camp at Phase 1 Sports in Las Vegas, Nevada to learn some new conditioning techniques. The training was intense! After the 2 day training camp, she has come back with new strategies for training , fueling our bodies and new exercises to help us work on our cardio and functional strength. It was a great weekend – she can’t wait to share all she learned!
One of our BIG milestones was celebrating our 1 year Anniversary at the 40th Street location. This year has flown by! We would like to thank all our students and their families for making SMA what it is. We could not have done this without all your love and support. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
On Saturday, April 2, we had our monthly Belt Test. We started the day with Red with Black Band and Green Belts. What a show of strength and determination! Our Red Belts started the morning off with 300 push ups and 300 crunches – what a great way to shake off the nerves and get that blood flowing. Congratulations to Aidan, Mikko, Chaney and Coban on their promotions! You deserve those belts.
Next up, we had our Orange and Yellow Belts. We have always maintained that our tests are not easy. That statement was put to the test for orange and yellow belts. Our students learned that at home practice is a crucial component to ensuring you pass your test. We would like to congratulate Ty, Shawna, Carson, Taydon, Angelo, Evan, Spencer, and Isabelle on their belt test promotions! Great job – you should be proud of your accomplishment.
Our last test of the day was the Little Dragons and Little Monkeys. These kids did an amazing job showcasing their skills. You all showed your determination and listening skills – we are proud of each and every one of you. Congratulations to Nico, Tyler, Ethan, Rylan, Zurrin, Ignacio, Cayden, and Aiden on their belt promotions.
