Happy Lunar Korean New Year!

Friday, January 31st, 2014

Today is the Korean Lunar New Year: “Seolla”. This is the True Turning of the Year for Koreans. They would visit their relatives (sometimes in other cities) to Meet and Perform New Year Ritual of Wishing Each Other Good Luck and Honoring their Ancestors.

Today for all the classes, Mrs.Chung made delicious Rice cake (“Tteokguk”) to Honor this special day.

We Wish Everyone A Happy New Year and Much Good Luck to You!

Congratulations To Those Who Received Their First Tips!

We would like to Congratulate those of our Students who Have Received their First Black Tip This Week!

If you were Not Able to Come in, Do Not Worry! We Still Have Time for Testing Preparation for the Beginning of the February Month!

Good luck to Everyone on Your Training and We Hope You Continue Reaching Your Goals!

Congratulations to Those Who Brought Their Sparring Gear! Great Discipline!

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Today our Grandmaster Recognized our 4:30pm Class Students Who Did Their Best Today and Brought Their Gear with a Star Sticker on Their Uniform.

For our 6:30pm Class who are Older and More Independent, he recognized Them with a Star Patch, for their continued Dedication and Discipline in Keep Track of Their Training and Sparring Days.

In Time, As the Students Become Older Their Stickers Become Patches, Recognizing Their Continued Commitment.

Keep Up the Great Work!
