New Tournament Format!
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the format of tournaments has been changed. Rather than going to the tournament, you can come to the school and record your form or breaking and send it in to the judges. This is a perfect time for students who have wanted to compete but could not. It also allows you to practice as much as you need before submitting the video! If you are interested in joining a tournament, contact Master Will.
New Assistant Instructors!
We are happy to announce that we will be promoting four new students to assistant instructors. Normally we choose the candidates beforehand, but we are changing it this time. Throughout the next few months of class, we will allow you, the student to earn your spot. The more you show up to class (both on Zoom and in person) and demonstrate your skills, the more likely a candidate you are. Here are the following requirements to be considered:
Must be at least 10 years old
Must be an advanced belt
Must come to Zoom class at least 3 days a week
Must have straight A's in school
Sparring and Jiu Jitsu are back!
As of October 13th, Governer Murphy has allowed for contact sports to reopen, meaning that both Sparring and Jiu Jitsu are back. Sparring will still be on Mondays and Fridays for any student please follow our school schedule. Jiu Jitsu will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and now Fridays at 7:00pm at the do-chang and on Zoom for any rank. We will still have Zoom classes 6 days a week as well.
Increase in Class Size
Due to the changing rules and regulations from the state, we can now have 15 students in the dochang per class now!
We are pleased to announce that we are starting a new program called the Student Spotlight. Student Spotlight allows us to show off our talented to students to the world. Every other week, we will be picking a student who we felt had a standout performance (on Zoom or in person) and we will record them and post there video to the school website and the Walter Martial Arts Youtube Channel.
