SMAP Fundraiser Needs Help

posted by JL Shaw

Hey Everyone,

SMAP (Stanford Martial Arts Program) needs our help. Especially with out low Stanford student head count, we really need to generate some goodwill.  Please consider helping.  If you are considering it, pls let me know!

Subject: SMAP Fundraiser: Help Needed

Hello SMAP Instructors and Officers:

There is an opportunity to raise money for the SMAP program and it only
requires *each member club to provide one volunteer on Friday 3/31 at
8:00AM and another on 4/1 at 6:00PM.* Volunteers will be setting up and
breaking down a Men's Gymnastics meet in Burnham Pavilion and will *only
work 3 hours maximum*. Working together with Athletics staff, the job will
be fairly quick and painless, especially if every club participates.

We may not move forward on this without a high percentage of participation
from all SMAP clubs and even though this is during Spring Break, I hope
most clubs can find two people to donate 3 hours each.

Here is the link to have your volunteers sign up:

Thanks for your help!

Get the word out on the Stanford "PE83: Introduction to Martial Arts"!

posted 15 Mar 2017, 17:35 by JL Shaw

The Stanford course PE83: Introduction to Martial Arts is a great class for any beginners looking to understand all the martial arts that Stanford offers.  It's also on the verge of being cancelled!  Please help get the word out, so that it won't be cancelled!

Below is the email I've been asked to forward....


Have you ever been interested in trying out martial arts?  Have no experience and no idea where to start?  Or maybe you've dabbled but are interested in exploring more?  

Consider taking PE83: Introduction to Martial Arts!  This class will cover the basics ot 3 different martials arts (specific martial arts TBD), each for 3 weeks.  No experience is required, and this may also be your last chance to take such a class!

And who knows, maybe by the end, you'll be able to do things like this:
water kid kick martial arts bottle

If you have any questions, feel free to email!

This Friday's Class (24 Feb) is Cancelled

posted 22 Feb 2017, 21:32 by JL Shaw

I'm fighting off a bug and I can't find anyone else to hold class, so this Friday's class (2/24) is cancelled.

Note that Sifu Ken will be back next Mon, so everyone should get back to class!  Classes have been very light lately.


Request: Pictures for the Stanford yearbook!

posted 20 Feb 2017, 15:43 by JL Shaw

The Stanford yearbook is soliciting pictures from our group.  If any of you would like to help take pictures for a couple of weeks, that would be GREAT!  We can then send them in!

Hope to catch you all in class (and wear your new T-shirts!)

While Ken is out of town, Friday classes are still going on.  However, I arrive around 6:45pm-7pm, so just start working out until i arrive.  Additionally, next Monday is Presidents' Day, and class will also be held.

URGENT! No Friday class (3 Feb)

posted 30 Jan 2017, 16:34 by JL Shaw

Ken will be out of town, and I am too sick to hold class, so Friday 2/3/17 class is cancelled.

Please let everyone else know as this is short notice.

Thanks, JL
