New White Belts
Congrats to our newest white belts: Sydney Arnold, Joshua Johnson & Tyler Cunningham. New uniform orders were placed but due to Hurricane Sandy the shipping was delayed a few days. I will send the newest white belts an email when the uniforms arrive.
Upcoming Instructor Solomon-Strutz Vacation
As mentioned in previous class sessions I will be in the Bahamas from Nov 1st – Nov 5th and then in Cancun from Nov 10th – Nov 14th. During my absences there are multiple higher belts and Instructors that have volunteered to lead Tae Kwon Do classes in my stead. There will not be any white belt tests conducted during my absence. As always I know that the club will be in good hands 😉
