We have a new promotion at Tai Kai Jiu Jitsu. It has the ability to pay you for referring friends to the school and train for free for ever. Here is how it works. You can refer friends to the school or see Jackie at the front desk and she can give you some free pass cards that you put your name on it to give to people. If anyone comes in and says they referred you or with one of your cards and signs up, you get to spin the prize wheel for a prize. There are prizes ranging from private lessons to $100 Cash, to Free Tai Kai sweat shirts
Every time a friend signs up you get a credit. Here are the bonus prizes
5 Credits= A free year at Tai Kai
10 Credits= $1,000 Cash
15 Credits= A lifetime Membership to Tai Kai
So help us grow the school and get paid and train for free
On Saturday, October 23rd at 11:30 AM we are having our belt ceremony. Candidates were announced earlier. There has been a slight change. It is still starting at 11:30 AM. but for the First hour and half, there will be a BJJ seminar from Phil Migliarese, Owner of Balance Studios. These seminars usually cost at least $75 per head. I want to give something back to all of the students who have made Tai Kai Jiu Jitsu such a great facility(and one big family), so Tai Kai is taking care of the bill. So not only do you get to be there for the ceremony, but you get a free seminar from Relson Gracie Black Belt, Phil Migliarese. All Belt Candidates are required to attend the seminar. This is a gift to all of the students, and I just wanted to say thanks for making Tai Kai such a great place.
This week four more students were promoted to Blue Belt. Robert Matrone, Don Patti, Jeremy Logan Walker, and SIFU Kevin Seaman. All overdue and well deserved. Congrats guys.
TUF 12: ELIMINATION
Marc Stevens vs. TJ O’Brien
Congrats on the fastest KO in TUF History
Phil Migliarese did an awesome seminar in Watertown at Jiu Jitsu Nation/Tai Kai North. At the end of the seminar Ken Kronenberg and Phil Migliarese promoted Marc Stevens to Brown Belt and Jordan Damon to Blackbelt. Ken Kronenberg also received his first stripe on his Black Belt. Jordan and Marc will also be coming October 23 to Tai Kai for the Belt Ceremony to fully certify their new belts and run the gauntlet of grappling.
The Belt Ceremony has been scheduled for Saturday, October 23 at 11:30 AM. Adult classes are cancelled for that day. The ceremony will start at 11:30 AM and everyone that attends must be in their GI. The candidate list will be posted by the end of the week. The class is open to anyone from white belt to black belt. We want as many bodies in there as possible so these guys that are going through the ceremony have as many sparring partners as possible. If you are a Blue Belt or above you should 100 % be there to show support. So lets have as many people there as possible.
These are the new Tai Kai fight shorts by Revgear. We also have black shorts with white trim and a white logo coming too. The white ones above are available now.
These T shirts will be available soon. They will be in different colors then showed above.. We also have the traditional Tai Kai Martial Arts T shirt coming back in Black and Army Green.
I will let people know when they are in.
It should be arriving this week. It is very similar to the above pic except the whole thing is black. It will be installed into the second room. The entire second room will be matted. It is an 18 foot octagon. It will provide another great training aid at Tai Kai Jiu JItsu.
