FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Entire Family of Black Belts in Bryant Prove Kicking Together Means Sticking Together

Seattle, WA June 6, 2008 – For the first time in Bryant history an entire family is earning their black belts tonight.

Dr. Marcio Sotero De Menezes, wife Rosario and their 15-year-old daughter, Gabriela, and their 12-year-old son, Paulo, will celebrate earning their black belts this evening. The Sotero’s, along with 6 other local black belt students, ages 10 and up, will be featured at a ceremony tonight at 7:00pm in the Eckstein Middle School Auditorium (3003 NE 75th Street, 98115).

Program Director and Instructor, Astre Kay, said, “The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the progress and growth in students and the amount of support they get from their families. After working here for 3 years I’ve found that the families that kick together stick together.”

Interspersed between performances by students as young as four years old, our newest black belts will be demonstrating some of the skills that they have developed over the last several years as students at Alpha Martial Arts. Black belt mother and wife Rosario Sotero de Menezes said, “Confidence and positive self-esteem are benefits of martial arts for individuals of all ages. In my experience there is nothing more confidence building than mastering a self-defense technique to the point that you feel you could use it in a confrontation or perfecting a form so that your body flows effortlessly through the movements.”

Chris Herrman, Executive Director and Master Instructor of Alpha Martial Arts, believes earning a black belt is a process of physical and personal growth…far more than most would suspect. “Alpha Martial Arts curriculum and the Powerful Words Character Development system provide our students with the opportunity to learn about, practice and experience first hand, the skills that will help our students to become grateful, helpful, leaders in our community. Our school stresses the importance of developing an Attitude of Gratitude. This is one of the many ways we build black belt leaders from the inside out.” says Herrman.

Chris Herrman is the Executive Director and Master Instructor of Alpha Martial Arts and has helped thousands of kids, teens, and adults to embrace a positive and healthy lifestyle.

A Quick Gratitude Post…

Greetings All,

I’d like to share a fabulous e-mail that we received about Gratitude Month and it’s effect on an instructor and school owner…Please forward us your best gratitude story for the month!

Hi Jason and Dr. Robyn,

I have a story for you! We did not actually celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week this year, but I did mention it to my classes on Monday and Tuesday. I recommended to the kids that this was a great time to show their gratitude to their favorite teachers with more than saying “Thank You.”

On Thursday, I received a small rose plant and a hand-made card (by an almost 5 year-old) that said “Dear Ma’am, Thank you for teaching us.” It was signed by all four members of the family that trains with us. Dad and older brother are advanced students, and mom and little brother are beginners. After the beginner class (while Dad and Big Bro were training) I noticed Mom and Little Bro working on an art project while they waited for the other two. Mom was telling the little guy how to spell “Dear Mr. Pete.” Then I heard her say “well… what do you like to do with him?” When I walked over on a break, he had written on another home-made card “Dear Mr. Pete. Thank you for playing with me.”

Thank you so much. I know what it meant to me to receive that hand-made card, and it’s so amazing that because of our program, at least two other teachers got the same smile. It never ceases to amaze me how much *I* learn from the Word of the Month program.

Cheers!

Cool Tool to Build Traffic and Google Rankings!

I am always on the hunt for marketing systems that will make my life easier and our business stronger. Over the years I’ve invested a nice chunk of change to test drive a host of different tools and today, I’d like to share one with you that absolutely LOVE!

About 6 months ago while at one of my Master Mind Meetings, one of my friends told me about a service called “SubmitYourArticle.com” He told me that he had been using it to help build traffic to his site as well as increase his online presence in Google. Like most other things I hear, I was pretty skeptical – most things, I’ve learned, are usually NOT what they claim to be. So…I did nothing…except file the information away in the back of my mind.

Now, fast-forward 5 months…Dr. Robyn and I are having a conversation about our plans for growth and one of the points on the agenda is to start using Article Marketing as a tool for Powerful Words as well as some of our other interests. For those of you who don’t yet know about article marketing – it’s pretty straight forward – there are a zillion different “article banks” on the internet that provide Free articles to anybody that want them (folks with websites, newsletters, ezines, etc.).

Now, you might be wondering why giving away articles would help grow a business or an internet presence…well – the beauty of all of the articles you provide is the little resource box at the end. You know…the one that says;

“Dr. Robyn Silverman is a child development specialist, success coach, and parenting expert. Known as “The Character Queen,” she’s the creator of the Powerful Words Character Toolkit, a character-building program for children’s activity centers and families. For more information, or to contact Dr. Robyn, please visit http://www.DrRobynSilverman.com or to take part in her Powerful Parenting Blog, visit http://www.DrRobynsBlog.com

This little box provides links back to your site which generates traffic…and hopefully interested prospects!!!

I started to research all of the different article banks on the internet and my mind started to swim – there are a gazillion of ’em. The time I’d spend submitting to all of them would prohibit me from doing anything else…so…I took a good look at submityourarticle.com and fell in love with it. I won’t bore ya with all of the details about how it works…if ya wanna learn about that – simply click on the link and check it out (I strongly urge anybody that wants more webtraffic, more google rankings, more clients, and more profit to do so IMMEDIATELY!), however, I will share some interesting statistics with you:

sumbityourarticle

We started using the service on March 1st 2008. So far, we’ve submitted 5 articles (you’re permitted to submit 8 per month). These are our results:

The 5 articles have been re-published 90 times. The 5 articles have been viewed (only on the one site we submitted them) 200 times. 64 people have subscribed to Dr. Robyn’s Free Article Feed!

If you want to see the results for yourself – simply go to google and enter “dr robyn silverman” and see how many pages pop up!

How would something like this help you? Well…imagine a parent searching for an activity for their child – they google something like “your town gymnastics” or “your town martial arts” or “your town dance”, etc. Now imagine that when they googled, they saw 10-15 pages of listings of different articles you’ve written…makes you an expert, doesn’t it? Odds are, they’ll click over to your school’s website…hopefully it’s a prospecting site that captures their information, and immediately and automatically starts the marketing process! (wow..this is a whole different post for another day)

In any case, we are firm believers that this service is helpful – make your own decision – I’m sure you’ll find it insightful!

best regards,

Jason M. Silverman
