We will continue to have TKD practice during the normal times during Finals week and look forward to seeing several of you tonight at Flat Top Grill for the graduation dinner.

Also, as announced during class, our TKD club trains year round. So if you are in the Champaign-Urbana area over the summer I look forward to training with you. Below are the tentative dates and times that we will train over the summer (subject to change due to weather).

    Summer Session I – May 17th – June 14th: Mon. 5:30-7pm, Wed. 5:30-7pm and Saturdays noon-2pm in the ARC, Combat Room

    Summer Session II – June 16th – August 7th: Mon. 6-7:30pm, Wed. 6-7:30pm (M/W class outside, grassy lawn outside of Law Building) and Saturdays noon-2pm in the ARC Combat Room

    Post Summer – August 8th – fall term begins: Mon. TBD Wed. TBD and Saturdays noon-2pm in the ARC Combat Room
    As there are no formal reservations accepted over the summer session if the Combat Room is too crowded then we may relocate to a nearby gym, etc.

Finally, if you are NOT taking classes over the summer but still in town, your iCard will grant you access to the ARC during summer session 1. However once summer session II begins you will need a campus rec membership or to pay the student service fee. Below is information regarding membership rates. If a significant number of students are not taking classes during summer II session we can move all classes outside but again some cancellations may occur depending on the weather.

ALL Summer 2014 Cost: $129
Summer Session II 2014 Cost: $85

Hi Everybody,

I wanted to email out huge thank you and congratulations to those that participated in the Spring 2014 belt tests. I appreciate all the higher belts and newer students that stayed to provide assistance, feedback and support. The majority of promotion sheets and results were presented in class this week and the remaining will be emailed and distributed in upcoming classes.

Graduation Dinner at Flat Top Grill on Reading Day: To celebrate a few of our graduating seniors please join us for dinner at FlatTop Grill on campus on Thursday, May 8th (Reading Day) at 7pm to wish them well in their endeavors. If you will be able to make it just send me an email and I’ll make a reservation prior to the event or RSVP on the facebook group page.

TKD Summer Training:
One of the perks of our Tae Kwon Do club is that it trains year round. We will have class during Finals week and if you will be around the Champaign-Urbana area over the summer join us and invite your friends.

Note: During the summer session we will train on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays in the Combat Room in the ARC as well as a several classes outdoors around campus. The specific starting times have not been confirmed however Monday and Wednesdays will still be in the evening and Saturdays noon – 2pm. An email with the official summer training schedule will be sent out after Finals week.
