2018 Fall Belt Promotionals
2018 Fall Belt Promotionals



With Spring Break season upon us, we will be holding our present class schedules, with the exception of March 29th and 30th, for those whose schedules permit.

We are presently forming new, limited-capacity Beginner classes for students of similar ages and schedules, with masks and distancing.

As we transition in the coming months towards a more typical communal class schedule, we hope to have larger numbers of classes with smaller student counts of similar Belt levels for better individual instruction, as well as earlier times for later classes.

."There is no best student, only more serious ones."        --D.S. Kim

We've been focusing on fine-tuning technique, and will focus on partner drills when things get back to normal, hopefully by the Spring of the New Year. Virtual (zoom) classes count the same as regular classes. Belt testings are held individually and at any time a student is ready, along with a family volunteer holding any needed kicking targets, which doesn't require any particular skill or strength. Virtual testings can be held with enough space to perform strong stances in Forms, which is our main, physical requirement for advancement. Returning students will start where they left off.

Disinfecting Bleach Solution:
1/2 cup Bleach added to 1 gallon of water.

(And don't forget to sanitize your phones, which harbor all sorts of germs in your pocket.)

Homemade Hand Sanitizer Ingredients:

2/3 cup 99% rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or ethanol

1/3 cup aloe vera gel
8-10 drops essential oil, optional (such as lavender, vanilla, peppermint, grapefruit)

recycled liquid soap or hand sanitizer bottle

The best compliment you can give your instructors is to recommend your School to others. We are offering "VIP" passes, which are Good for 2 weeks of free classes plus a free uniform. These are special passes available to our students (located on the top of our Pro-Shop display cabinet) to hand out to their friends and family. With each VIP referral pass returned, the student will receive 6 Dojang dollars, worth $2.00 each towards the purchase of items in our Pro-Shop.

If you have a son or daughter is in the Advanced youth class, then he or she must include at least one Wednesday sparring (additional class) each month to be eligible for advancement.
While Wednesday sparring classes can't replace Self-defense classes as far as material, they do count towards the minimum number of classes required for you to test, and are open to anyone who is a Green belt or higher.

Anyone may begin attending the "Teen & Adult" class upon reaching the age of 13, which is also the oldest you can be to participate in the "9 & Up" classes. The oldest you can be to attend the "Color Belt" classes is eleven (11).
