November 2016 Announcements


First, congratulations to our newest white belts Mary and Yuhan

Belt Test Information:
As mentioned previously there will be two belt tests this term (lower belt ranks in Sunday and higher ranks on December 3rd). This Sunday, November 13th warm-ups will start promptly at 11:00AM! In turn, I recommend showing up 15-20 minutes early to ensure you are there on time. If you plan on testing you must be at the warm-ups.

Also, if you are not testing please still wear your uniform since you can definitely help out during the test by holding targets, free-sparring, taking pictures and encouraging your fellow club members. Afterward, there will be a traditional potluck at my place in Savoy, IL starting as early as 4:30pm. View the facebook event for the address and details.

Belt Test Schedule (slight changes from previous email since there are less participants)

      • 11:00am – 11:45am : warm-ups (lead by high belt) & basic kicks
      • 12:00pm – 1:00pm : white – yellow, yellow – green

The belt testing fee is $10 and this can be paid in cash or check on the day of the test. The fee covers boards, belts and other testing items. If you are re-attempting for the same belt level there is no fee required.

Other Items:
Please review the techniques for each belt rank that will be evaluated during the test on the club website: Also, everyone that is testing should review the rules sheet with the Korean terminology (click here for rules sheet) and have a favorite technique prepared. You should be able to demonstrate your favorite technique on both sides.

Potluck Gathering:
The potluck will take place at my house and begins at 4:30PM. The earlier start is to accommodate those that choose to support Instructor Martin’s Final Conducting Recital which starts at 7:30pm.
Things to bring to the potluck: A tasty dish, dessert or beverage to share with the club and feel free to bring a friend or significant other. Also, if you are attending sign-up to bring an item to share on the shared Google spreadsheet so that everyone doesn’t end up bringing brownies.
