9th TKS Black Belt Test

Black Belt Testing:
Last Saturday’s black belt testing was completed very successfully.  Everyone was very confident and did superb job.  This time our black belt testing was made more special because two grand masters and one master presided over our testing:  Grandmaster Youn Geun Lee, Grandmaster Han Young Kim, Master Sung Ki Kim.  They were very impressed and gave high praises.  The testing results will be processed this week and by next week the assistant black belts can join ‘Black Belts Only’ or ‘Teen & Adult Class’.



Community Service

On Sunday, October 22, 2017, Master Lee and Instructor Kwak will take some of our students to L.A. to serve coffee and donuts to the homeless. We would also like to take other items to donate to those in need.
There are two ways to participate:
 1. Volunteer Your Time (13 years old and older)
 2. Donate Items: The weather is getting cold now, in need of blankets, bed sheets, jackets, bags but
     anything and everything is welcome.
There will be DONATION BOX available in front of dojang. Items can be dropped off from Monday, October 16th to Friday, October 20th.
*Please clean/wash clothing items or blankets before donating.
If you have any question, you may email or ask any of our Masters or Instructors,


Our Masters and Instructors are planning “FUN and EXCITING” buddy day for our students on Halloween Day. It will be held during their class times so this would not affect any class schedule.You may bring your “buddy” to your child’s belt level class schedule. There will be more information to follow, please think about a buddy to bring for this special day plan for our students.
