WHAT'S NEW...We won't be holding in-person classes until it's lifted, hopefully within the next two weeks. Any individual changes will be scheduled with one-on-one, E-mail communication.
With the expectation of an imminent second wave of the virus, we did not return to June's post-lockdown schedule for this Fall, and are prepared for any possible isolating measures. As you know, for individual, in-person classes, we're taking all possible precautions, including masks, 2 mat squares apart for safe distancing, hand-sanitizing stations, scheduled in-between class sanitizing, temperature monitoring, and upgraded HVAC filters.
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

1/2 cup Bleach added to 1 gallon of water.

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.
