Congratulations to our newest white belts Jonathan and Samantha!
Thank you to those that completed the February social interest poll. The majority of individuals had more availability the following week. So please vote in an updated poll by Monday, February 28th. The options still include Public Skate at the Ice Arena, Indoor Rock Climbing at Urbana Boulders, and Bowling at the Illini Union Rec Room.
White Belt Testing Information
Starting the week of February 21st the last 10 minutes of class will be reserved for any new student that wishes to take a white belt test. The white belt test is a brief physical test followed by questions. If you are a new student and feel you can comfortable demonstrate the first form Chun Gi and know the school rules and Korean exercise counting then you are ready to take the white belt test.
Arriving Late – Perform the Late Warm-up Sequence
If you do arrive late to TKD class (after the class has finished the initial jumping jacks) please perform the late warm-up sequence, bow in, and join the class. The late warm-up sequence is 50 jumping jacks, 50 push-ups, 50 sit-ups, and 50 leg lifts. It is extremely important to warm up the body before beginning kicking drills and martial arts training.
Spring 2022 TKD Training Schedule
Mondays 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Wednesdays 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Saturdays 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Help Us Decide on a February Social
So as the first round of exams is wrapping up let us know if you are interested in a February social event. Please vote for what you would be interested in attending by Wednesday, February 23rd.
It was nice to see new students join us this past Monday!
As stated in the mass email that went out yesterday “With potentially dangerous levels of snow, wind, and ice in the forecast and expected K-12 school and daycare closures, the university will move to online classes and essential operations for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.”
Further, the ARC will operate under abbreviated hours on Wednesday and Thursday (2/2-2/3), open 11 am-5 pm.
Then we will resume to in-person class on Saturday at 12 PM in the ARC Combat Room
