Wow! What a weekend. A HUGE KO MAP SUM NI DA to Grandmaster CS Kim, Sa Bom Nim YD Kim, Sa Bom Nim Dufour, and all of the other Sa Bom Nims, Kyo Sa Nims, and Black Belts who came out to support and join us this weekend. This event is definitely one everyone will remember and cherish for a very long time. We are so grateful for having had the opportunity to have Choong Jae Nim down for the weekend to visit our Do Jang and provide our students with a weekend of learning and training through the seminars that were taught. Time spent with Tang Soo Do family is always time well spent! Tang Soo!!
Summer Camp Registration is now open to our current students. Registration will open to the public on Tuesday, January 28th!
We are excited to announce that the 2020 International Tang Soo Do World Championships will be held in Orlando, Florida at the Renaissance Hotel Orlando at Seaworld! The tournament and seminars are open to all students of all ages and ranks. We hope to have a large group of students attend this tournament. The tournament will be held August 6-9. More info will be given during our Awards Night in September. We would like to begin fundraising now, so that we will be able to raise a large amount before the tournament gets here to help offset the cost of attending. If anyone has questions about the World Tournament, please see Mrs. Lauren!
Effectively immediately we will begin using Remind for text message reminders from Central Karate. To sign up, simply text @cklatsd to 81010
A quick reminder regarding uniforms (do boks). We have noticed a lot of dirty and stained uniforms lately. Please be sure to make sure uniforms are neat and free of stains. New uniforms are always available at the do jang for purchase. Uniforms are only to be worn to and from class. ITF etiquette calls for only the pants to be worn to and from class and the top and belt put on upon entering the school. As a reminder, we have a changing room that students may use as needed. ALL STUDENTS need to get their patches on their uniforms ASAP. Remember they are not iron on. With the exception of White Belts, every student should have an ITF patch as well as the Flag patch on their uniform at all times. If you need to purchase patches, please see Mrs. Lauren. STUDENTS WITHOUT PATCHES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PRE TEST OR TEST!
UNIFORMS SHOULD BE CLEAN, NEAT, AND FREE OF STAINS AT ALL TIMES!!
White Belt Students will not have any patches on their uniforms.
Yellow & Orange Belt Students are required to have the red ITF patch on the front left of their uniform and the Flag patch on the right sleeve at all times. Please make an effort to get these patches sewn on ASAP.
Green & Red Belt Students are required to have the ITF patch & Flag patches on their uniforms at times. Green & Red Belt Students are also required to have lapel trim on their uniforms. Ribbon is available at the do jang upon request.
If anyone needs to purchase patches, they are available in the office for $10 per patch. These uniform requirements are set by the International Tang Soo Do Federation.
As some of you are aware, the jewelry situation has gotten out of hand here at the do jang. No only is it causing a distraction to students, it is also unsafe for students to wear jewelry during class and it can potentially be unsafe if they are working with a partner.
Effective 6/6/16, we will have a strict NO JEWELRY policy in class. The only exceptions will be a small pair of stud earrings and wedding rings/bands for those adult students whom are married.
We appreciate your understanding and compliance with this new rule.
