Phoenix Academy Third Annual Board Breaking Championship Another Great Success!
The third installment of our annual board breaking tournament was an amazing experience for everyone that came out to show their skills. Students from our Little Tigers age 4-5 were fierce competitors! More advanced belt levels and age groups had increasingly difficult breaking techniques such as jumping and spinning kicks that demanded a combination of precise timing and power to earn a gold medal! Many thanks to our adult students that volunteered to judge, referee, and organize the event to give our students the valuable experience of performing under pressure. Go Phoenix!

Happy 10th Birthday Phoenix Academy!
It has been an amazing journey with many friends and families sharing with us along the way. We want to thank everyone that has supported our students, staff, and community over the years! From our humble beginnings at the American School of Dubai with a small class on February 23rd, 2011 to our growing classes at our modern facility in Al Quoz, and the COVID lockdown forcing us to switch to zoom classes. We have had many students earn their Black Belt over the years, our Competition and Demonstration Teams have won lots of trophies and medals, we sponsored First Aid and Leadership Seminars, Kids Night out and Halloween Parties too! We hope to continue for years to come and prove again that a Black Belt is just a White Belt that never gave up!
Congratulations to all New Black Belts!
Great job to all our newest Black Belt students that successfully earned your first Dan! Everyone worked very hard over the last few months with the COVID restrictions that made it even more challenging. We has most of the 3 hour test in our Dojang but held the board breaking portion of the test outdoors and on zoom so families and friends could cheer them on. It is an amazing accomplishment for students of all ages, so be proud of yourselves and thankful to your families that have supported you on this life journey. Well Done!!

Well done to our new Black Belts that successfully completed the Spring testing! It was a great example of hard work and dedication that all our students displayed to family and friends. We had Second Degree and Third Degree candidates as well showing the journey continues for life skills as well as martial arts and physical performance. Great job!
Well done to our students that took class this summer and tested for their next belt last month. Phoenix has regular classes all summer long if you are in Dubai during the school break. Our adult classes had lots of activity and the kids classes were busy as well. Keep up your skills and earn that next belt by continuing to train all year long!
