New uniform/shirt policy:
Please wear your Phoenix Krav Maga Level shirt (other Phoenix Krav Maga shirts are acceptable as well) to each and every class. If you come to class without your shirt, you may buy one for $30. We take cash, check or can run credit card.
Why is wearing your Level Phoenix Krav Maga and Fitness t-shirt (UNIFORM) to class so important:
For many years, a wide array of industries have used uniforms, including schools, the military, sports teams, and workplaces. Uniforms help people distinguish one group or organization from another.
No matter what type, uniforms give people a sense of unity and help promote pride in being a part of a larger organization. Loyalty in a group also increases, and a feeling of team boosts the morale among everyone involved. Members also feel more confident and enthusiastic because they belong to a group that has the same interests and goals.
Your Krav Maga T-shirt is not just a piece of clothing. It is also a mental and physical preparation tool. Putting on your T-shirt serves as a signal that you need to get ready for class and give 100% of yourself to it. By leaving everything else behind before you step onto the mats, you will ensure you are both physically and mentally present during the class, so that you can experience all the benefits of the training session at hand.
The uniform/t-shirt demonstrates a student’s commitment to the self-defense journey. People who learn commitment at an early age are better able to persevere when life gets difficult. High school, college, graduate school, and a career all require commitment. So do relationships, friendships, and parenthood. Those who remain committed to their values, to the people in their lives, and to a career path, tend to live longer, happier, healthier lives. Teaching your child about commitment sets the foundation for success. When a student wears their t-shirt, they see, hear, and feel that this space is different. The student gets the message, “I am here for a special reason. This isn’t like my other activities.”. It builds a foundation for a student to accomplish things they can’t accomplish anywhere else.
The T-shirt also plays one more important role – it helps you come to an understanding that everyone here at Phoenix Krav Mag and Fitness is a part of a big and great team and family. Our t-shirts help us build that family closeness and help everyone understand that they are welcome. It shows people that they are part of the martial art community — the select few willing to train, learn and advance.
Here at Phoenix Krav Maga and Fitness, our martial arts instructors and assistants always wear a different colored t-shrit so that it is easy for anyone in the class to recognize them and approach them whenever it is necessary. For the students, different colored shirts help our instructors/assistants to differentiate who is attending what class and at which level of progress they are at the moment.
