Taste of the Seaport Sat. Oct. 20 – Square Circle New York Joins this Event!

Oct. 18, 2018 – The 9th annual food, music and entertainment event Taste of the Seaport will be hosted on Piers 16 and 17 in the South Street Seaport area in our FiDi neighborhood. The main feature will be the food offerings from many of the local restaurants along with additional local businesses featured from the community.

This community event will benefit the local public schools Peck Slip PS 343 and Spruce Street PS 397.

Our booth will be located at Pier 16, Booth #47. A map of the event layout is attached.

For all visitors, we will have a Prize Wheel with items to win such as free t-shirts, free exercises, free week of training and more! Only non-SCNY members that have never trained with us are eligible to spin and win prizes!

We will have live demos/padwork in Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in both adult and youth settings. Each demo session will informally last around 15 minutes before transitioning into the next one. A few of our coaches will be in attendance at different points during the event training and holding pads for Muay Thai, or demonstrating basic guard positions or basic submissions for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Youth Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class will take place from 12:00pm – 12:30pm, and Youth Muay Thai class will take place from 1:00pm – 1:30pm.

Parents, please note: the classes will be more of a demonstration of the core values and light technical work because we have very limited space. If you plan on attending, please have your child show up with their appropriate uniforms. Both classes can end early or go over a few minutes. In addition, please have their change of clothes ready in case they need to change to regular casual street clothes.

We encourage all our students to contact us with times and availability that want to participate in the demos or volunteer to assist us at our table with basic Q&A from inquiring individuals or with the Prize Wheel. We are planning to have a 10’ x 10’ mat area in front of our booth to accommodate the demos.

If you wish to help us set up, you can meet us at SCNY at 10:00am and help us bring the materials over to our booth, or you can meet us at 10:30am at our booth. We are happy to have help from anyone that is interested! Call us at 212-964-9800 at the school for more information. Hope to see you all there!
