Summer II TKD Schedule, Turkey Run Trip and No Class Sat. 6/2/18

Thank you, everyone, for spreading the word to friends it has been a nice summer of training so far with both new and returning students. Also, as mentioned in class we will train this evening (Memorial Day holiday) at the same time and location (ARC Combat Room at 6 PM).

No TKD Class Saturday, June 2nd
I will be traveling this upcoming weekend with family so TKD class on Saturday, June 2nd is cancelled. 

TKD Summer II Training Schedule
Summer II Session instruction starts Monday, June 11th. Our training location on Monday/Wednesday evenings will change during that time to outside (grassy lawn outside of Law Building – corner of 4th & Peabody). The time will remain at 6 PM. We will NOT train in formal uniforms for outdoor classes. Remember to bring water and sunscreen. In case of rain, the weekday class will move to the ARC Combat Room.

As of now, Saturday classes will remain in the ARC Combat Room from 12 pm – 2 pm unless a majority of class attendees are unable to access the ARC facility during Summer II. Either comment on the Facebook group or email me if you will be on campus during Summer II and will not have access to the ARC and or unable to pay for a summer campus rec membership/student service fee that also grants access.

Turkey Run State Park Trip – Saturday, July 7th
Finally, if you are interested in a summer TKD trip to Turkey Run State Park sign up on the Interest List. Turkey Run has plenty of recreation available such as hiking, canoeing, kayaking, inner tubing, etc. and we could picnic afterward.
