Update

Dear Parents and students,

We miss you! All of our instructors miss teaching you and seeing your faces every week. We really hope to see you in class again very soon, when health orders and restrictions have eased. Thank you to students and parents who have reached out to us about restarting classes. Meanwhile, please keep an eye out for updates, which we will be posting here.

The past year has brought great changes to our lives, and with it, our opportunities to train and learn together. We understand it may be difficult for you to practice effectively at home, and hope you have had the chance to continue doing so. We have released a series of ‘Practice at Home’ videos on YouTube mentioned on last post, which is a great way to train and follow along with. Just make sure you watch your surroundings, and don’t knock over the TV (or your mom’s favorite vase!)

We are also excited to be organizing a new way of training, which is suitable for students of all levels to participate in. Keep your eyes peeled, as we hope to make an announcement very soon. 🙂

Despite setbacks, the pandemic presents us with some opportunities. Now, more than ever, it is important we continue to exercise the tenets of Taekwondo by following public health guidelines so we can protect friends and neighbors. We remain courteous by minimizing contact and protecting each other. Knowing what we should and should not do by following the public health guidelines is an example of integrity. We are proud that everyone has demonstrated their amazing perseverance through these special times. Even at times when it may be tempting to break our self-control, we do not falter. These circumstances are difficult for everyone but we can overcome these hurdles with our indomitable spirits.

Wishing students and families are safe and well. See you soon.
Taekwon.

New Practice At Home Series on YouTube!

Hey students! On behalf of the Instructor team, we hope you and your families are healthy and safe.

To help you keep up with your training even when we aren’t meeting for practices, we are kicking off our Practice at Home series on YouTube!

This set of videos takes us back to basics working on Stretching, Stances, Kicking and Punching! Let us know what you think, and if there are any topics you want us to cover next!

Stay safe everybody, and keep on kicking!

TOURNAMENT TRAINING SESSION

As a Taekwon-Do student, you may have never competed in or watched a Taekwon-Do tournament before. What is a tournament? What should you expect when you enter in one? What are the rules? If you’re a red belt or above, you are expected to judge and/or referee. You may have no experience with either or don’t feel very confident doing so. 

To answer these questions, we are holding a tournament training session at Hugh McRoberts Secondary School on Sunday, October 20th, 2019 from 9:00am to 12:30pm. We will give you tips on how to prepare, teach you the rules of the events, teach red belts and above how to judge and referee, and introduce you to what a tournament is. 

Green belts and above are invited and encouraged to attend this event. You can register online at here. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask your instructor.
