We Hope You Enjoyed Our Mother’s Day Event!

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

We had more then 20 families come in to celebrate Mother’s Day with us yesterday! Parents were seated while their children colored pictures for them, afterwards everyone participated in passing techniques which are good for the muscles and spine…as well as fun! Afterwards we ended the hour with parents choosing techniques to break board with their kids names on them! We had many punches, hammer fists, jumping double front snap kick, and even one wanted to try eye poking! Of course, it would not be complete without Mrs. Chung’s dumpling goodness!

For all the volunteers who came to help hold and engage our USMA moms (Master Maria, Mr. Franck Chatayan, Mr. John Kirby, Mr. Jason Norberto, Garen Kalendar, Sebastian Kirby, Patricia) we thank you for your support!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Today is our Mother’s Day Event!

We will be having coloring, food, exercising, and board breaking!

See you there!

Attention USMA students and mothers! Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 11. We will be having our own celebration on May 9 during the 5:30pm class to honor Moms everywhere! If you have colored pencils or markers laying around, please bring them in so you can create a gift for your mother. Also if they are able to come in the class we have a special surprise involving board breaking!

We hope to see you there and enjoy this event!

Thank You to Those Who Came to the Seminar!

Sunday, May 4th, 2014

We would like to congratulate everyone who came to the seminar yesterday! They did an excellent job following the drills and techniques that were done by the Master and learned new moves as well! Granted, this is a preview…without repetition and practice the knowledge of what is learned will fade. Please make notes from seminars to review in your mind and continue to grow!

Congratulations to our students and Masters who received their certificates of participation in this seminar! A special congratulations to Master Maria! She received a Letter of Commendation in honor of her “outstanding contribution to the success and development of Ko Am Mu Do Federation through the earnest performance of his/her assigned duties” signed by all the Grandmasters. Only a few Masters were given this award due to their participation in many events, competitions, and services to their individual schools.

We hope to see everyone for future events in October and November! These include the Referee Seminar and Competition. The exact dates are to be announced at a later date.

Congratulations to Everyone Who Received Their Belts This Week!

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

Monday through Friday we had many students moving up in their belt rank, and would like to congratulate them on their ongoing progress! It is not about the individual testings, but the continual improvement overall: their confidence, focus, discipline, technique, and artistic ability.

We wish you the continued best of luck for your future progress, and if you have any questions on your individual progress please do not hesitate to ask our Grandmaster or Masters.

Until the next testing!
