Newsletter Apr 2021 Posted on 03-19-2021

As mandate restrictions are adjusted by the state, we continue to look forward and plan for some of the things we will be able to do. Our Haidong Gumdo program is affected very little while our Tang Soo Do program has been challeneged with teaching and practicing a large portion of our curriculum that requires partners in contact or close together. In recent weeks, we have started to prepare to begin some partner work again in tang soo do classes. We've started to wear our sparring gear to help with conditioning as well as getting used to it again. We've been talking with our supplier to get some options for gear for our students again.

Currently, these are the guidelines that we are following for classes.

  • Each class is limited to 18 students
  • Students are distanced about 10 feet (current mandate is 6 feet)
  • No partner work except with family members
  • All students and spectators must wear a face covering (mask or face shield)
  • Temperatures are checked at the door. If you do not feel well but still want to be in class, participate via Zoom.
  • Students to arrive in uniforms when convenient. (Those that are driving just a few minutes to class.)

We have set up a student payment page on our website so that invoices are able to be paid online in a more efficient manner. When an invoice is due, you should get an email from kicksite with a link to the payment page. You can also find a link for the page in Band. Improvements to that page will continue to happen as we find things that would help.

Students and parents: Don't forget to get into the appropriate BAND for the program(s) you are part of. This is our preferred way to stay in touch with instructors, get important announcements, and even share pictures from class and events. It is where you will learn when classes have been canceled due to bad weather or road conditions! If you are having trouble getting in, talk with an instructor.
