Summer Schedule

We understand that your summer may take you to the lake a few days a week1 or out of town for a week at a time, and we invite you to compensate for that by coming to any classes that work with your schedule even if they are not your usual class.  If you need some guidance please contact Mrs. R.

We look forward to a wonderful summer of growth for each of us and for our entire TKD family. (click on schedule to see larger image)

More Summer Camps Coming

Our Kickin' the Summer off Right Camp filled up faster than ever this year so we have put together some more great camps for July and August.  There is still a little room in the 4-6 year olds Lil Kickers camp June 13-17th.

5 day of  Poomsae will be July 18th-22nd.  Mrs. Rosbarsky will not just teach forms but also how to add your own flavor and personalize your forms so you (and your audience) enjoy your performance.  Green Belts and above, all ages are welcome 9:30-11:30.  Red and Black Belts only 12:30-2:30.  Red and Black belts are recommended to attend both sessions.  $85 for 1 session or $150 for both.  10% Early Bird discount by June 24th.  (MTC Black Belt Instructors also receive an additional 10% discount on both sessions.)

Teen camp for MTC students age 13+ will be July 29th and 30th.

Ninja Camp for ages 8 and up will be August 9-13.  This camp combines Taekwondo and Parkour and includes a performance on Saturday the 13th. Previous MTC Taekwondo experience is required.  The cost is $105.  $10 discount for Early sign ups by July 15th.

Overnight camp with Grand Master Park August 26-28.  More soon.

We would like to hear requests from all our TKD families about dates, times, content and ages for other camps you would like to see this summer or summers in the future.  Although we love to hear from you in person the best way to make your request stick is to email it to

June 2nd All School Class and Pictures

The All School Class is scheduled for 6pm at Franklin Park.  As it appears rain is imminent, our contingency plan is to meet at 6pm at MTC.  We will creatively structure the "class" to get everyone moving together.

Individual pictures will be at MTC 3-6PM.

Group pictures will follow the class at 7pm.  EVEN IF YOU CAN'T MAKE THE CLASS PLEASE COME FOR THE GROUP PICTURES SO YOU CAN BE INCLUDED IN THE MEMORIES.  Pictures by Steven Begleiter.

The Bar-B-Q is postponed to save the 100s of doboks and the mat at MTC.

Master Rosbarsky to Coach World University Team

In April athletes from around the US traveled to the University of California-Davis to compete in the 2011 National Collegiates.  The black belt athletes who won their respective divisions will now travel to the World University Games at Shenzhen, China.

Master Rosbarsky has been asked to be part of the coaching staff for this highly competitive team.  He will travel to China to coach the team at the WUG and to Mexico for the high altitude team training camp.

This is a fantastic opportunity for Master R to gain a lot of international experience and for the Collegiate National Team to be positively effected by our loving, intelligent and hard working coach.  The greatest aspect of this is the positive effects this will have on wave upon wave of MTC students.  for years to come we will be reaping the rewards from this expansion of our collective knowledge and our wider field of vision.  It may truly make the world a smaller place for our aspiring martial artists and make what was once a far off goal a tangible carrot just out of our reach that will be fully attainable with some purposeful practice.

Congratulations and good luck to Master Rosbarsky for being the kind of coach that others look to to lead our promising athletes.  We know you are the right person for the position and look forward to the fires that you will ignite with this experience.
