Will the classes be recorded?

What should I wear for virtual classes?
Wear your Karate Uniform! This can be your full Gi or your Burch’s Karate Shirt, Gi Pants and Belt.
Why is this important? Because, when you put on your uniform and tie that belt around your waist, it puts you in a different mindset. We call this the "Martial Arts Mindset". This will also help to make it a more unique experience for your students. Your instructors will be leading by example and rocking their uniform and belt as well.
How do I continue to progress towards my next belt when training online?
Each virtual class that you participate in will count towards your class attendance. Our instructors will take attendance during each class to ensure you are still moving towards your next belt.
You are still eligible to earn stripes when attending Virtual Training Classes. Instructors will keep note of your stripes earned and will present you with them when classes resume at the school.
Any PRO TIPS to help me or my child succeed with online training?
Yes! Look at the schedule as a family and pick the class times that are your "NO MATTER WHAT" class times. These are the times that you are going to commit to NO MATTER WHAT.
Structure is essential for reaching your goals, without it, it will become easy to find excuses. This also will help kids to ensure that they know when they need to get into their martial arts mindset.
Mr. Burch, Sensei Matt and others will be in your living room doing Karate with you!! Remember things happen in life and we must be able to adapt and adjust. Let’s make this a time to thrive not just survive :-)
