Black Belt Club Members Join us for a Special Class Taught by our Teacher.

Black Belt Club members we wanted to give you a special chance to come take a class taught by our teacher Sensei Fariborz on Saturday April 23 from 1-2pm.  In this class you will meet Sensei Fariborz who taught all of your instructors here at Evolution.  He will give a brief background of himself and how he got started martial arts.  Then he will teach you all something new or different.  If you plan on attending please bring all your equipment and weapons.

The class is scheduled to go from 1pm-2pm (but may go over).  Please come a bit earlier at 12:30 for a light lunch before the class.  There will be a sign up at the front desk if you plan on attending.  This will give us a better idea of how much lunch we will need to bring.  We hope all the Black Belt Club members can make it.  This is a great opportunity to learn from someone who taught all of us for 15+ years.

Halloween Blog3 Halloween Blog2 Halloween Blog1

Original Post:
Every year on the day before Halloween we allow students to wear their costumes to class. We typically cancel classes on Halloween day if lands on a weeknight, since this year it falls on a Saturday we will be open in the morning and allow any students who can’t make it to Fridays class to wear their costume Saturday.

Children can bring any masks or accessories for their costume for our group photo but will have to leave those items off to the side during class.  Wearing a costume is not mandatory.  We look forward to seeing you all in your costumes.

Season 3 Top Team Auditions – August 23rd and 30th

It’s that time of the year, Top Team auditions.  We are assembling a new group of Top Team students for the 2015-2016 season.
Do you like performing in front of a crowd? Does that type of intensity get your adrenaline pumping? Evolution Martial Arts Academy is holding auditions to join Evo Top Team, our demonstration team. Evo Top Team will perform demonstrations at future belt graduations and other special events. A special class on Fridays will allow these team members to work together and prepare for the next performance and improve on special skills.

Whats New this year:
This year we will be selecting 10 students to join the Top Team.  The students will be split into 2 teams.  Each team will perform at alternating belt graduations.  This will give students 2 months off to rest before they start meeting for practices and finally perform at a graduation.  If some students would like to perform at all demonstrations they are more than welcome to as well.  Once the teams are formed, performance dates will be given.

Requirements:
The ONLY requirement needed to audition is the rank of at least Hapkido Jr. Green Belt. All students who fulfill this requirement are more than welcome to try out but NOT every student will make it. Only 10 spots are available on this roster as of right now. Five of the most important factors we are looking for are

  • Focus
  • Following directions
  • Technical ability
  • Intensity
  • Being able to handle pressure

How Auditions Work:

  • Auditions will be held on Sunday August 23rd and August 30th starting at 8:30am.
  • Students must make an appointment ahead of time (Sign Ups will be on the front counter). Students only audition one time on one of the days. (Previous Top Team members MUST audition again)
  • Students waiting must wait in lobby area until their turn.
  • Each student will demonstrate in 10 minutes a list of techniques in front of judges. (Students have done all these techniques before, list of techniques will not be known to student until they step on the mat)
  • Once students are done they are free to leave.
  • Judges will review all notes and students who made the team will be notified a couple days later.

Parents keep in mind there is a possibly only one sibling could make it while the other(s) do not. Students who make the team may be cut from the team at any time. Auditions will be held again in the future as we increase the number of spots on the team or have to fill available spots.

Good luck, bring your skills.
