Dear Dragon Gate Families,
We hope this message finds you in great spirits and filled with enthusiasm for what lies ahead. At Dragon Gate, we are dedicated to continually enhancing your martial arts journey, and we have some exciting news to share! Be sure to review the attached files.
Expanding Our Class Schedule: More Classes, More Opportunities
Starting on OCTOBER 1st, we are thrilled to introduce an expanded class schedule that will provide even more benefits for our Dragon Gate family. In addition to our existing Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday classes, we will now offer classes for Little Dragons, Kids beginners, and intermediates on Mondays and Fridays.
We understand the challenges that come with juggling work, transporting kids to various activities, and managing everyday responsibilities. This expansion is a direct response to your needs and requests. Attached to this email, you will find our brand-new 2024 schedule.
Why These Changes Are So Beneficial:
- Greater Accessibility: Our goal is to make our martial arts programs more accessible to both new students and our beloved existing members. With more class options, you’ll find it easier to fit martial arts into your busy schedules.
- Enhanced Learning: These changes are particularly aimed at parents. We have noticed that students who attend class only once a week face more significant challenges in their progress and become discouraged when their goals seem unattainable. We want to help avoid setting a precedent that quitting is the answer to avoiding failure. We care deeply about your child’s success; we want to see them thrive, develop powerful focus and build the confidence to take on life’s challenges. By offering classes on five days a week, we aim to provide ample opportunities for consistent practice and advancement toward achieving that coveted Black Sash.
Empowering Young Minds
At Dragon Gate, we’ve witnessed incredible transformations in our young students. Many of them have significantly improved their focus, self-confidence, and coordination through consistent training. We firmly believe that these changes are crucial for their personal growth and success, both inside and outside the academy.
Tuition Changes: Affordable Excellence
To support these exciting enhancements, there will be a slight tuition adjustment starting on November 1st, 2023. This increase aligns with our standard annual adjustment to maintain the high-quality services and ensure we have a dedicated team of instructors and student coaches to guide you through our improved schedule.
We’ve taken great care to keep the increase as modest as possible, considering the exceptional value you’ll receive. When you look at the additional training time and opportunities now available, you’ll find that this change represents a fantastic value proposition for your martial arts journey.
At Dragon Gate, our mission has always been to help every student thrive, meet their goals, and find success on their martial arts path. We believe that these changes will empower you, our cherished Dragon Gate family, to achieve even greater heights in your martial arts journey.
Thank you for being part of our incredible community. We look forward to seeing you on the mats and embracing this exciting new chapter together. If you have any questions or need further information, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
