The class schedule for the remainder of the week will remain as previously announced: Wednesdays 5:30pm – 7pm and Saturdays noon – 2pm.

Congrats for new yellow & green belts
Also, please help me in congratulating our newest yellow belts: Aditya Sharma, Katie Ferrari, Harry Rocha and newest green belt: Kevin Dinh. You can check out some of their board breaking on the TKD @ UIUC facebook page.

Upcoming White Belt Tests
During the week of September 24th I will be conducting white belt tests for new students: This is a brief physical test that will take 10 minutes and be followed with questions. If you feel you comfortably know Chun Gi (first form), the school rules and the Korean counting/terminology I will conduct a white belt test for you at the end of class on Monday, Wednesday or Saturday. You can find the school rules, definition of TKD, aims to achieve, Korean counting and terminology on our website:

Again, if you do not feel like you comfortably know the terminology or school rules then you can take the white belt test at a later date in October.

Finally, thanks everyone again for terrific birthday free-sparring on Saturday’s class.
