Private Lessons - Private lessons are a great way to make up for missed classes. Lessons are $20.00 per ½ hour or pre-paid $60.00 for four ½ hour lessons. See Sensei for dates and times. Please give 24 hours advance notice when cancelling a private lesson to avoid being charged for the lesson.
School Creeds - Our school creeds are posted on the back wall of our Dojo. Please learn the creeds, give thought to their meaning, and apply them! Developing a code of conduct: how we act on a daily basis, is a large part of what our martial arts training is all about!
Creed #1 - I intend to develop myself in a positive manner and to avoid anything that would reduce my mental growth or my physical health.
Creed #2 - I intend to develop my self discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others.
Creed #3 - I intend to use what I learn in class constructively and defensively to help myself and others, and to never be abusive or offensive.
CMA DEMO TEAM
CMA's Demo Team showcases the benefits, discipline, and hard work associated with martial arts. Our team's training is above and beyond the standard class curriculum. We have special training practices and perform at schools, public events, parades, and more. The demo team is not an opportunity to be instructed or corrected on your requirement material. The demos are designed to educate, entertain, serve the community, and display what we do at CMA while introducing us to the public!
Team Director: Sensei Frank Shekosky
Becoming a demo team member is by invitation. Students must be able to demonstrate their requirement material as well as demo team material proficiently, be able and willing to attend the mandatory demo team practices, and most of all, show school SPIRIT and enthusiasm! See our demo team page for more details!
Contact Sensei Shekosky to book a CMA demo at your activity or special event!
