Enjoy a Fun, Meaningful Summer

Lil Kickers
The greatest part about summer is the greater flexibility we all have to explore the things that truly interest us.  We are privileged to offer our summer cams to our students so they may spend some time exploring Taekwondo with a greater than average intensity as well as developing lasting bonds with their peers and MTC Black Belts.

In June we offer camps for all belt levels (even beginners) ages 4 to 12.

  • Two weeks of the Kickin’ Summer Off Right Camp for kids age 7-12 will be held June 13th-17th and 20th-24th, 9am to 3 pm daily. (1 or both weeks)

  • Campers who reach for their potential doing both weeks of camp will test for their next belt on the final day of camp.

Keep It Clean

example bag
Recently there have been a few things mistakenly taken at the Dojang.  If you are here when the white and yellow belt classes are switching you can understand the possible confusion-it can be quite a zoo.  To minimize this effect we are asking everyone to get a TKD gear bag: a bag dedicated to hold you TKD stuff to and from Taekwondo and which will hold your shoes and clothes during class.  Please take it to and from Taekwondo every class and do not store it in a cubby for later use.  We are asking this of all our students, including the upper belts who are looked up to by so many younger and lower belt ranked students.

Summer Schedule

Dinner and a Show

Eddy in Kick-a-thon
This is by far the most fun event we put together.

Our Annual Spring Gathering, Dinner and a Show, is scheduled for May 6th at 5:30PM.  We will kick off the evening with the Kick-a-thon.  This portion of the event is a display by any willing participants who have secured pledges, of 1 minute of intense kicking.

The show will continue with a Talent Show displayed by MTC students.  All MTC students are invited to participate with any kind of talent.  We are looking for all ages and ability levels, participants need not be experts. Acts should adhere to a 3 minute or less performance.  For dinner we will have Bulgogi (Master Rosbarsky’s specialty) accompanied by pot luck sides.

Tickets will be available for sale at the dojange.  $5 for Adults, $3 for Kids and just $12 for a family of 4.

To participate in the Dinner, Show or Kick-a-thon please check out the front counter at the gym or ask Mrs. Rosbarsky.

Yearly Odor Reminder

It bears mentioning this time of year that we, as a group, sweat.  And when you sweat in an enclosed space it is smelly.

SOOO…Please remember to be proactive in fighting odors.  Clean Doboks. Clean Feet. Clean bodies. Wear Deodorants.  Our noses thank you.

The Colored Belt Test has Changed

Colored Belt Test
The next colored belt test originally scheduled for May 13th has been moved up to April 22nd.

As always in preparation for belt tests daily poomse practice at home will make the overall experience better.  You will go from just making it through to really being able to add your own flavor to your Poomse (and derive enjoyment from it).

Our wish for all of our students is to have their tests be a life enhancing experience.  If you have a question about test readiness please ask Mrs. Rosbarsky.
