New terms for the World Class Poomsae and Olympic Style Sparring classes will begin, starting on April 1, 2014. All current members have already received their renewal forms, which must be turned in by the end of the month.
In special class, students will be trained physically and mentally, weekdays and weekends, in preparation to compete in presitigious local, regional, national, and international tournaments. All students that wish to join must be Yellow Belt or Higher.
We have currently gained possession of a few coupon booklets courtesy of the Missing Children’s Resource Center. The booklet contains coupons for mechanics, tire shops, child play areas (such as Boomers and SkyZone). So if anyone is interested feel free to ask either Master Lee or any Instructor for any coupons you would like.
During the past few weeks, 8 members of the sparring and poomsae teams competed in the US Open, as well as a few State Championships in order to qualify for the 2014 National Championship, which will be held at the San Jose Convention Center. Our students competed at the US Open, an international competition with great prestige in every sport worldwide. They also competed in the Arizona and Nevada State Championship Qualifiers, and will attend the California State Championship in April. All 8 students qualified, earning them a spot in the 2014 National Championship. We want to wish these students continued success, as they prepare for the National Championship, which will take place July 1 – July 7. Wish them good luck and show them your support!
In the upcoming month of April, we will have three different seminars for three different aspects of the black belt test: form, sparring, and breaking. These seminars will be held on three consecutive saturdays: April 5, April 12, and April 19. The first seminar will cover form, the second will cover sparring, and the final seminar will instruct breaking. The seminars will take place from 11:00 – 12:30. Each seminar is crucial and mandatory, so be sure not to miss any.
