Happy holiday season from CMAA! Having just hosted our weekend mini-tournament, we’re in the final week of training for 2015. Keep in mind that we’re closed to martial arts students from Dec. 21 to Jan. 4 (although Fitness and Kickboxing classes will continue).
Plus, there’s the ever-popular New Year’s Eve lock-in. That’s right, students can join us for an overnight on the mats starting at 6 p.m. Pick-up is at 9 a.m. January 1. The individual rate is $79, with families charged $158.
Students will enjoy supervised fun, movies, and counting down the midnight descent of a stuffed animal. Anyone there last year will remember the fun of the disco badger. Plus, you can keep an eye on everything with our webcam — in case Ryan Seacrest or Anderson Cooper are too dull.

- Make your own cranberry sauce instead of cracking open a can.
- Dr. Oz suggests homemade wine spritzers instead of champagne.
