UFAF BLACK BELT TEST SATURDAY OCTOBER 26, 10am
No Classes that day--all Students are encouraged to attend!
WE ARE A BLACK BELT SCHOOL!
Focus, Goals, Commitment
Our LMA family Rocks! So many friendly faces and beautiful families we are privileged to serve.
LMA believes the martial arts is more than just a "skill" that we "do" but a "life skill" that we "live".
TIME TO SET GOALS - NO EXCUSES!!
Our LMA theme for 2013 is NO EXCUSES! This theme can apply to all areas of our lives, adults, teens and children alike. (Look for new "LMA No Excuses" T-shirts later in the month) What are your goals going to be this year? For all our martial arts students, what belt and curriculum level do you want to reach by the end of 2013?
To our Leadership students now and coming up, how are you going to prioritize Leadership classes and fulfilling the martial arts spirit through the circle of passing on your art to others? Begin mentoring in the Leadership Mentor/Buddy class, start assisting lower rank classes, bring in new students to learn martial arts.....?
More martial arts goals for all our students to think about for the year:
1) I will compete in at least one LMA tournament and one LMA recommended tournament off site.
2) I will participate in 2 LMA special seminar events to broaden my knowledge and skills and meet another high ranking experienced black belt that want to share his art.
3) I will support as many fun LMA events as I can this year, because we have fun with our LMA family and friends!
4) I will be faithful in helping lower ranking students and lead by example in and out of our studio.
5) I will show courtesy and respect at LMA and at home by keeping our studio and my room neat.
6) I will share my martial arts spirit by referring in a friend.
COME TO KARATE THIS MONTH AND TELL US YOUR MARTIAL ARTS GOALS.
The 9 Characteristics of a
Lacombe Martial Arts Black Belt
COURTESY, COURAGE, COMPASSION, RESPECT
LOYALTY, HONOR, HUMILITY, HONESTY, DISCIPLINE
All our students no matter the rank should learn and strive to achieve these characteristics. To us at LMA, these traits represent the heart of a True Black Belt. Although we are all human and not perfect, these characteristics should remain front in center in our lives.
When we mess up, NO EXCUSES, face our error or mistake with humility and have the courage to rectify or change what needs to be done. Sometimes it is an act, sometimes something in ourselves needs to change or evolve. Our goal should always be to become a better person. Then pass it on.........our studio is a perfect place to take what we have learned and apply it on the mat and by giving back through helping others.
Throughout the months of this year, we will take time to highlight each one of the LMA Black Belt Characteristics.
Start thinking of examples of how you live out these words in your everyday life and in your martial arts life.
This month we will focus on LOYALTY.

The UFAF International Training Conference that was in Las Vegas, NV this past week and weekend was once again a fun and exciting time! The Saturday evening Dinner and Ceremonies was attended by almost 600 UFAF members and their families!
The weekend was filled with great workshops for all ages and ranks in addition to the International Tournament throughout the event the second half of each day.
Our LMA school would have a blast bringing a bunch of our students and families to this event to learn, have fun, and watch. This year LMA attendees were Master Steve Smith,Mr. Aaron Alston-Roth, Mr. John Feldman, Chip Lightfoot (adult Red/Black), Ariana Vujicic (adult Green).
So with that said, plans are in motion to plan for next year's UFAF ITC!
