January Special Events: LEADERSHIP and MOTIVATION

January has been very dynamic and exciting so far.

Our new series “LEADERSHIP and MOTIVATION” kicked off with a bang.

We started This new program where our Special Class ( Poomsa and Sparring) and Demo Team members join the regular classes and lead, show, help, and encourage the students.  The Special Class Demo Team members learn to take the role of leaders and learn the weight of the responsibilities as one.  For the students, it can be a source of motivation that can help them set new goals.  The classes have been so much fun, too.  We hope to do this more often this year.
