Going Away Dinner at Papa Del’s: Wednesday, September 28th at 8PM
Instructor Zach Duray has accepted a full-time job at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln! Come on out to Papa Del’s after Tae Kwon Do class to congratulate him and enjoy some pizza. I’ll order some pizzas in advance so it will be ready when we arrive. So RSVP on the facebook event and let me know if you will attend and what type of pizza you enjoy.

White Belt Tests
For those new students that are interested in taking the white belt test please either email or inform the instructor prior to class. The white belt test is a brief physical test that will take place at the end of a regularly scheduled class and be followed with questions. If you feel you comfortably know Chun Gi (first form), the school rules, and the Korean counting/terminology on our website then you are ready to take the white belt test. You can find the school rules, the definition of TKD, aims to achieve, Korean exercise counting and terminology on our website.

 
After new students pass the white belt test they have the opportunity to purchase a uniform for $18.

June 2016 Announcements: Summer II Training Schedule

[June 8, 2016]

All,

It has been a great Summer I session training with those still around Champaign-Urbana. Looking forward to class this Saturday at noon in the Combat Room.

Monday, June 13th marks the beginning of the summer II session meaning any student not taking summer classes would need to purchase a campus rec membership in order to use the ARC. As a result, Monday/Wednesday classes will be held outside so remember to bring water and sunscreen. Also, we will not train in formal uniforms for outdoor classes.

See below for more details:
Summer Session II – June 13th – August 5th:

  • Mondays 6-7:30pm (class outside, grassy lawn outside of Law Building – corner of 4th & Peabody)
  • Wednesdays 6-7:30pm (class outside, grassy lawn outside of Law Building – corner of 4th & Peabody)
  • Saturdays noon-2pm in the ARC Combat Room*

*If warranted we can move Saturdays classes outside as well, just send me an email message if you will be around but unable to access the ARC during summer II session. Then I’ll send out an email message if Saturdays classes are relocated.

Enjoy the weather and have an awesome weekend,
