As a martial artist, your lineage is very important in helping you understand where you fit into the often complex structure of martial arts organisations. On a day-to-day basis, you train with your instructor and the other students in your dojang. But what about all the other Soo Bahk Do practitioners and instructors who have come before you? Who is your instructor's instructor? And who was their instructor? How is your instructor linked back to Kwan Jang Nim (grand master) HC Hwang and the Founder Hwang Kee? These are all important questions you not only need to know, but should want to know as you progress in the art.
The classes are all filling up quickly, and it is likely we have now reached capacity. To help keep the senior students on track, we have started a monthly Seniors Training class, scheduled for the first Saturday of each month from 9am to 11am for Adult and Youth Green Belts and above. We will also look to add in extra weekend classes during the school breaks, so keep and eye on the Term Dates (below) for those details.
Good luck to everyone taking part in the upcoming Shim Sa.
