Our 30 Day Challenge came to an end in February. We had a great 30 days of awesome workouts and support. Our Facebook group provided for some great accountability. We learned about the importance of meal prep, healthy eating, portion sizes, HIIT training and weight training. Our ladies put in the work and saw results! What more could we ask for? Are we ready for Round 2 yet?
This month we launched the Summit Martial Arts app! The goal was to make the sign in process easy and convenient for all our students. We are still working out all the bugs and hope to have everything running smoothly in the next few weeks. The SMA app is a FREE download in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. If you need help getting set up, please see Mrs. Morris and she will assist you. Click below to see the app in action.

Our SMA Belt Test was held on Saturday, February 27. We started our day with our Little Monkeys and Little Dragons test – it was a full house! Standing room only for friends and family. Our SMA kids did an excellent job showcasing their skills. Congratulations Isabella, Micah, Hunter, Rylan, Xander, Sebastien, Cassidy, Hayden, and Calin. All your hard work paid off! We are proud of each and every one of you.
Next up was our Orange and Yellow Belt Test. Our students went up and down the floor showing their kicks, punches, and blocks. We finished the day with 2 rounds of continuous sparring. Our belt tests are not easy, we have always maintained our high standards at each and every test. At SMA, you know without a doubt you have EARNED the belt around your waist. Congratulations to Dan, Omar, Xander, Matias, Brock, and Sam. Great job everyone!
We finished the day with our Green and Red Belt tests. These tests are not for the faint of heart. This is where you show what you are made of. The physical requirements will test both your mind and your body. We are so proud of Max and Levi for their amazing efforts. Congratulations! You EARNED those belts!
Summer Camp registration opens for current SMA students. Summit Martial Arts is proud to offer full day and half day – week long summer camps for ages 6-12. Week 1 – July 18 to 22 and Week 2 – August 8 to 13. Our camps are open to everyone. There is no experience necessary. Full day students will have 2 – 1 hour lessons per day. Our days feature a balanced mix of tae kwon do fundamentals, sparring (light contract/flag sparring), self-defence, kicking exercises, punching drills, and board breaking. Students will work on strength training, agility and co-ordination through a series of fun and challenging circuits. Children will be divided in to smaller groups of 4-5 based on their age and skill level and will be paired with a junior camp instructors. There will also be a mini-tournament held on Friday where students will showcase all their newly developed skills.
Our goal is to provide a high energy, active and fun day for our kids. This is a great opportunity for kids to learn a new skill, make new friends, and boost their self-confidence when faced with challenging situations.
Please see our website for more details.
We can’t wait to see what March will bring! Train hard! We will see you all on the mats.
