SMA x Feed a Billion

Hi friends,

For the month of November, we are working with Feed A Billion and every check-in at Spectrum Martial Arts Academy will provide a meal to someone in need.

Feed A Billion raises funds to feed children and families in need in every corner of the globe. They partner with networks of food banks that have the most efficient methods of food distribution to minimize the cost of each meal. Their long term goal is to feed one billion people by 2020 - and we are going to help them do that! You can check them out at feedabillion.org

Customers can use this month’s hashtag, #givemeals.

Thanks for checking in to help feed a billion people!

Sincerely,
Coaches Ray and Seth Miller

SMA x Bright Pink

Hi friends,

This October, during breast cancer awareness month, we are proud to partner with the Bright Pink to provide women tools for detection and prevention of breast cancer. Every 3 check-ins will help provide 1 woman access to a breast cancer risk assessment.

Bright Pink is a national non-profit focused on saving young women’s lives through the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer. Bright Pink’s innovative programs educate and equip young women and their doctors to assess their risk for breast and ovarian cancer, reduce their risk, and detect these diseases at early, non-life-threatening stages.

Hi friends,

This August, we are partnering with buildOn to provide bricks to build schools in developing nations! Every 6 check-ins will provide one brick to build a school.

We have finished the designs of our squad t-shirts!

Starting on Memorial Day (May 29) through Labor Day, we will allow our students to train no-gi. This means they don't have to wear their gi! However, in an effort to promote team building, we ask that only SMA shirts or pre-approved rashguards be worn. Belts and gi pants or pre-approved shorts must be worn while training no-gi.

We have designed awesome new t-shirts for every squad at Spectrum! An order form will be going up this week in the academy so you can put down your information to order your squad shirt! Rashguards will be available soon as well!

THESE ARE LIMITED EDITION!... Because of that, we will ONLY order squad shirts for those who pre-order. We will be having a standard academy shirt for everyone who does not pre-order and for our adult students. There is a minimum number needed for each order so we encourage you to represent for you squad!

You can also respond to this or send us an email, message us on Facebook, or call to pre-order your shirt.

Pre-orders will close soon! Secure your shirt now!
