2012 – Looking Ahead

As we look forward to the coming year I would like to first wish everyone a healthy and prosperous New Year.

2012 promises to be another exciting year for the Mountain Academy. Testings are scheduled for March 10th, June 9th, September 8th and December 8th. We look forward to testing a number of students for increased rank this year.

Our new branch of the Mountain Academy will be in full swing starting in January. It is located at 250 E Dry Creek Road, Littleton, Co. in the Inspirations Dance Studio. You can contact Mr. Colson at jcolson at mtnacademy dot net  or Master O’Hara at masterohara at mtnacademy dot net  for more information. Class times and prices can also be found here. Master Bishop will be moving his classes including weapons from the Link to this location.

Our classes at the Link will continue as they did in 2011.  2012 will mark our 12th year with Lakewood and the Link under the capable guidance of Mr. and Mrs. Barrow and given me a place to teach. It has been a pleasure to work with the City of Lakewood and the Link. They have helped us be a success. A Tournament is planned in October at the Link.

The Gilpin County and Idaho Springs schools continue to do well under the watchful eyes of Mrs. Rich and Mr. Beasley and are looking forward to a great year. A tournament is planned in Gilpin County in April.

Several Black Belts have made themselves available for private lessons. They are listed at the Mountain Academy website here. 

We are always trying to improve our school, if anyone has any suggestions please get them to us via the contact section on the website, they are much appreciated.

I am very proud of our Mountain Academy family and look forward to seeing each and every one of you in the coming year.

Happy New Year!
