As 2014 is wrapping up I thought I should share an update on the last couple months which have been an absolute whirlwind.
First I want to say welcome to the hundreds of new students that have joined K2 in the last few weeks – you are in for some exciting times in 2015!
I have been busy flying back and forth between east and west coasts learning, sharing and working on many exciting new developments for the K2 schools.
Renshi Alain is bouncing between Louisiana and Thailand as the filming of his big Hollywood role has just begun.
As I am writing this renshi Scott is still on his China tour where we have just contracted factories to produce some custom gear and apparel for K2.
Renshi Chris just returned from coaching a California competition series where Delphie won several tournaments including the BJJ World Championships at purple belt. (All of this is just the last few weeks…)
In 2014 we grew to 4 full time academies and a half dozen part time affiliate programs. There are nearly 50 K2 classes running every single day in the Ottawa area!
This weekend will be the largest black belt test we have ever had in our 15 year history with 20+ candidates and we are closing out 2014 with 2 amazing celebrity seminars – UFC star Tyron Woolley on November 29th, and BJJ grandmaster Carlos Machado on December 6th.
All of this to say – thank you. Thank you for your support and thank you for your patience with some inevitable growing pains. We appreciate all of the K2 students (including NX of course) and all of the K2 families and friends and we are very proud of all of your accomplishments.
2014 was by far the most successful year we have ever had by every possible measurement. The great news is that 2015 is on track to be our most exciting year yet.
More growth and opportunities, new killer programs, new events, several huge name celebrities already booked, an incredible new sponsorship program for athletes, a point system for students to earn wild rewards, a huge list of outrageous prizes including several full vacation packages, and so much more.
In fact our list of announcements is getting so big for the new year that we are actually putting together a release schedule to not overwhelm everyone.
There has never been a better time to be part of K2 and we can’t wait to show you what’s next.
