We will be having another round of testing on Saturday and Sunday May 23-24th. They are by invitation only, Master Yanqing has already begun to give out the invitations to those ready to test. Because we are in a different location, these sessions will, unfortunately, be closed to spectators. Students must be in proper uniform in order to test. We look forward to seeing you there.
First of all, we would like to take a minute and thank all of you for supporting us. We greatly appreciate all of your efforts. We are undergoing a bit of a transition period and have decided to change the name of our organization. Our new title is the Shaolin Temple Cultural Center Arizona (STCCA)! Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all in class :)
The center will be closed on Wednesdays for the summer. Thank you for your time and dedication to our school.
We are proud to have promoted a new class of students to the next rank this
Saturday, May 17th. Among them were 5 new blue belts, 3 new green belts, 10
new purple belts and 5 new brown belts. Brown is currently the highest rank held
at ASCC. Congratulations to all of those students.
Unfortunately not all of our students were able to attend this past session due to scheduling conflicts. We will planning a make-up session in the near future. Be sure to check your emails often for updates.
