Congratulations to our newest white belt Michaela!

Increased traffic at ARC Today 2/15/2020
Further, there is a wheelchair basketball tournament this weekend (2/15 & 2/16). So there will be increased traffic within the ARC and limited availability in parking. I hope to still see several students in class this afternoon.

White Belt Testing Opportunities in February

White Belt Testing Opportunities
Starting the week of February 10th the last 10 minutes of class for any new student that wishes to take a white belt test. The white belt test is a brief physical test that will take place at the end of a regularly scheduled class and be followed with questions. If you feel you comfortably know Chun Gi (first form), the school rules, and the Korean counting/terminology then you are ready to take the white belt test. You can find the school rules, the definition of Taekwondo, aims to achieve, Korean exercise counting and terminology on our website http://publish.illinois.edu/tkd-illinois/. After new students pass the white belt test they have the opportunity to purchase a uniform for $18.

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.
