Welcome back everyone,
I hope everyone had an enjoyable break and it was nice to have a few students in town to train with this past week.
First, congratulations to our newest white belt Tyler Smiley!
TKD Class Schedule Remains the Same
- Mondays and Wednesdays 6pm – 7:30pm
- Saturdays 12pm – 2pm

High-Green Belts Leading Warm-Ups
This upcoming week and in early April there will be several higher belts leading warm-ups to prepare for the young instructor level (blue belt). Please remember school rule number two and give these students the utmost respect as they challenge us physically at the beginning of class.
IU Tournament Spring 2019 Cancelled
Indiana University notified me over spring break that their spring 2019 invitational tournament was cancelled. There is a local open adult taekwondo tournament on Saturday, August 24th in Urbana, IL. Note: this is the weekend prior to the fall term starts but I will collect additional information and share on social media for those interested.
Hope to see several of you tomorrow evening in class
Reminder: Daylight Saving Time is Sunday, March 10th and there will be high belt class at 11 am in a Multi-Purpose Room nearby the Combat Room. No uniform required for our high-belt classes.
Spring Break (3/16/19 – 3/24/19) TKD Training Schedule

- Monday, March 18th – Class 6 pm – 7:30 pm in the Combat Room
- Wednesday, March 20th – Class 6 pm – 7:30 pm in the Combat Room

Note: There will not be a Sunday high-belt class during Spring Break
Arriving Late – Perform the Late Warm-up Sequence
Please try to arrive on time for class. However, this is a reminder 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.
This is simply a reminder that there will not be Friday Free-Sparring tomorrow (March 1, 2019) as I will be traveling out of town for black belt evaluations.
During my absence, Instructor Landers will lead TaeKwonDo classes on the weekend (Saturday 3/2/19 at noon and Sunday 3/3/19 high-belt class at 11 am).
