A huge welcome back to all the parents and children this week. We are primed and ready to carry on with your martial arts tuition and look forward to sharing the journey with you. We will be starting the school term off by talking about ?respect? in class this week. A good place to begin I think, respect for each other brings about patience and tolerance, a biggie with children starting new classes and new schools. The trainers have been teaching and training in preparation for taking your children to the next level. Classes have been on for all of January and many children were making the most of ?unlimited? classes to get ready for grading on 11th Feb at Balmain (Details below). You may see some changes in the trainers this year, but you will also see myself and other senior trainers on the floor a lot more this year.
If you re interested in creating lasting positive change in your life, have a quick read: The 3 secrets that I use for success. I used these when I was working with The Biggest Loser Contestants. For years a worked as a flight attendant. If you want a laugh check out : A flight attendant?s revenge; Fat Pizza. go to http://www.northstarmartialarts.com.au and click on weekly news.
Though our venue hire has been raised by 10%, we will not be raising the fees. In fact we will also NOT be charging the Northstar annual membership of $30 (though you will still need to be a PCYC member). We have worked hard to keep our costs down and to do that we need your help. Please see the changes to Fee Structure below.
I thank you for continuing to choose Northstar Martial Arts.

See you in class. If you have any questions please contact me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
The 3 words that I use when planning out a new year are:
DETERMINATION: Is a quiet but firm resolve that no matter what gets in your way you will be there at the end. You are willing to go to your edge, and then explore your limitations with a clarity that few have the courage to face.
DISCIPLINE: The ability to remain ?at your post? when you are being screamed at by yourself or others to take the easy path.
RESILIENCE: No matter what is thrown at you, no matter how many times you get knocked down, you keep standing up. Discipline, Determination and Resilience are the backbone of the Northstar Black Belt.
All 3 are qualities of a champion. They over lap and support eachother. I hope you can apply them to your own champion list and motivate yourself to follow the path of peace, contentment and present awareness in 2011.
