Our brand new Black Belt woke up to this awesome surprise sign in our front lawn this morning—thanks PBK for this proud smile. 😊
Personal Best Charity is committed to helping our local food pantries during this time of need. Norton's Cupboard of Kindness is having difficulty collecting certain items and would appreciate anything we can do. Please note the donation box locations around town and a list of items that are in short supply. If you can help, it would be wonderful.
It’s that time of year again! If you or someone you know is likely eligible for the June Run Test, it’s time to start training of you haven’t already. DO NOT WAIT FOR YOUR LETTER! It will be too late to prepare properly in the short amount of time between being notified of your eligibility for the run and the actual test day.
Our little club gladly welcomes volunteers for timing runners or coaching runners or pacing runners. Typically we meet at the Norton High track on the weekends. Day/time to be determined.
We are not an official PBK sanctioned group, but a collection of parents and students committed to helping each other reach our goals and maintain our fitness.
Please comment below if you wish to be invited to join our FB group page “PBK - 3 mile run team” and if you are interested in running or helping and what days/times you are available so we can put together a regular meet up ASAP.
Congrats to all our Norton family. You guys did awesome. We are in awe of you!
Due to the weather we won't be having our storm/swat meeting today or comp team practice. Please stay safe and have fun.
Huge shout out to all of the people who came out to support the runners this afternoon. Your cheers and applause make a tremendous difference in the mental game of running.
Jared takes his testing serious. He was practing today before class.
Hello PBK friends! Has a decision been made yet about today's karate classes?
Is PBK open for karate classes today?
LETS GO PATS!!! #personalbestkarate

Punishing a child by taking away their favorite activity or sport might not be the best punishment. 10/06/2021

Punishing a child by taking away their favorite activity or sport might not be the best punishment.

Master Rappold has some insight on why punishing a child by taking away their favorite activity or sport might not be the best punishment.
https://youtu.be/NodBed1NGsQ

Punishing a child by taking away their favorite activity or sport might not be the best punishment. Is withholding the potential benefits of an activity worth being able to withhold the activity as a punishment?

Celebrating 30 years of Personal Best Karate, Grand Opening September 14th, 1991.
Started two months after graduating college, I opened my first commercial location in South Easton Ma. Looking back how fortunate I was to have the timing on my side to start when I did. Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, The Karate Kid etc. all helped to fuel the interest for learning martial arts. I had a 1200 sq ft space, a 286 computer and a dot matrix printer and away I went. Who knew each of the 3 things I had would be insufficient within a year?
For all the people who have had my back for all or part of the journey, “thank you” your contribution has brought me to where I am.
For all the people who challenged my thinking, “thank you” for opening my mind to different perspectives.
For all my team members over the years who gave their heart to care and mentor the students of Personal Best, “thank you” your work is remembered and lives on in the people who you influenced.
And for all the people inside and outside of our schools who have set an example about the power of truly living at their Personal Best life, you continue to inspire my life’s work of helping others realize their potential through the work I do.
