In order for our precious time together to be intentional, efficient, and fruitful, all participants must have a goal or reason for being on the mat. This goal or reason must be personal (“I statements”) and well-defined/measurable (e.g. I want to medal at States; I want to be strong enough to be able to do 25 push-ups, etc.)


In order to join the class, before stepping onto the mat, this goal will be written on a notecard, presented to our group, and posted on the goal board.  By leaving our personal goals on display, we can hold ourselves and each other accountable, share in each other’s struggles and successes, and encourage each other along the way.

A person without a plan is a person who plans to fail.

Plan your work; work your plan.

Without a goal, the path forward is unclear.

Without a destination, you will never arrive.
