2nd Annual Bulsajo Dojang Fundraiser event!
On August 27th (from 10-1) at the Goffstown Parks&Rec we will be holding our 2nd annual fundraiser! This year students can choose between doing a kick-a-thon OR a punch-a-thon! Another small change will be that I will not allow flurry kicks this year, only full kicks please. I will be passing out or have already passed out the fundraiser sheets this week. I am also looking to have this event be a potluck! Perhaps someone may even bring a grill to bbq! If anyone is interested in spearheading the potluck please let me know, otherwise I will take care of it.
Our demo team will be performing their first official demo OUTSIDE our school this Thursday! Wish them luck!
There will no longer be MooSulDo Classes at the Parks&Rec location for the time being. Although I feel as though the class has great potential there simply was not enough interest in it. However, Brad, who was the only participant, said he really enjoyed training and with his help I formulated a lot of ideas for a curriculum. I hope to start this class up again in the new year and will give it a stronger push for new students.
Weapons Class, Open Study and Private Lessons
There will be another weapons class on the last Thursday of every month at the Park&Rec from 6:30-7:15. The weapons class has been the most consistent extracurricular class. For those of you interested please know that you must be 12 years of age, green belt or higher and that there is an extra cost of $10 (per class) to participate. I would prefer this class not be used as a substitute class but I will allow it so long at you inform me first. Current weapons students, if any of the above differs from what you have been doing, no worries as you are “grandfathered” in.
Open Study Time! These shall be the first and third Thursdays of every month from 6:30-7:15 at the Goffstown Parks&Rec. This is not a class, but an opportunity for practice time and or private lessons for yourself or groups. If you are interested in scheduling a private lesson with me during these times or at your own home, please send me an email/message, text or phone call or speak with me directly.
This notice is for Bulsajo Parks&Rec students and anyone wanting to participate regularly at the Goffstown Parks&Rec. Starting in September of this year, tuition will be increasing by $10. I do apologize for any issues or inconveniences this may cause. I did not make this decision lightly and there are were reasons for it. Again, I apologize for the any issues or inconveniences.
Dan Class at the Goffstown Parks&Rec will be canceled tonight. In its place will be an Open Study for all Bulsajo TaeKwonDo students who are preparing for testing. Sorry for the short notice.
6:30 – 7:15
Due to loss of water; tonight’s Adult class at the YMCA Allard Center is canceled. Although the Y will be open again for regular gym use at 7pm.
YMCA Allard Center Classes are CANCELED today due to weather. Stay safe and warm folks. 2/8/16
Oh and Happy Chinese New Year!
There is an adult class.
But the roads are pretty bad so please be safe!
No worries if you miss class!
January 16th is fast approaching so I wanted to make sure I got this done. We are asking that all black belts bring something for the pot luck. We did not want to list actual dishes so we will simple ask that everyone grabs an item for below. We have about 20 black belts and their families coming to our ceremony, so please keep that in mind.
We are looking for 5 types of finger foods, 10 types of entrees (or main meal) and 5 desserts. We will supply water, plaits, utensils and napkins. If you would like to bring something to drink other then water, please do. Please note that this is a DRY event. There is power for crock pots etc.
We ask that all black belts try to arrive by 3:15-3:30 so that we may go over schedules, organize ourselves etc. Everyone else is asked to arrive at 4:00pm. If parents want to stay with their children at this time that is fine. (Perhaps parents can help set up our food stations) Parking is limited as well so please car pool if need be. We will try and start the ceremony at 4:30.
If you wish to select a food type for the pot luck, please let me know ASAP so I can keep track of it.
Bulsajo TaeKwonDo is excited to announce that we will be starting a new type of class in the new year!
MooSulDo or The Way of Martial Arts Techniques.
The class will have a strong emphasis on basics, fitness and fighting in a self defense situation. There will be a strict age requirement of 15 or older. Students with or without prior martial arts experience are welcome. Although this class can and will compliment current TKD students training, it is also going to be a separate ranked class. Meaning, students of Bulsajo MooSulDo can achieve a black belt level status.
For now, classes will only be the 1st & 3rd Thursday of every month at the Goffstown P&R and will be held from 6:30-7:15pm. The cost will be $20 a month or $10 a class for current Bulsajo TKD students. This fee is in addition to your normal tuition. However, I will allow the MooSulDo class to be used as a make up class for those who meet the requirements. For new students, who want only to take the Bulsajo MooSulDo class, the fee will be $25 a month.
I would also like to take this chance to remind everyone about DemoTeam, Weapons Class and Dan Class.
DemoTeam is every Thursday from 6:00-6:30pm at the Goffstown P&R. We have five members and would love to have more! Currently there is no age or rank requirement! Members learn creative poomse, weapons, breaking and self-defense skits! There is no cost for the DemoTeam class other then members are expected to train hard during class and practice when not in class. Members who do not keep up with practice will not be allowed to perform.
Weapons Class is the 2nd Thursday every month at the Goffstown P&R. Students must be at least a green belt in order to participate and will be expected to learn JangBongSul or Long Stick Techniques first before moving onto other weapons. Currently the other possible weapons are JoongBongSul (short stick, 2′ to 3′ which evolves quickly into single handed sword techniques), SangJulBong (flail stick or nunchucks) and ChaRuBong (handle stick or tonfa). Don’t have a weapon? No worries, I sell some basic versions of the JangBong and JoongBang. I can also get different versions (materials etc) if a student wishes. The weapons class is $10 per class and can be used as make up class for those who meet the requirements.
Dan Class is the 4th Thursday of every month at the Goffstown P&R. This class is only for Bodan and Black Belts but has no age requirement. Poomse, breaking, hossinsul, sparring, basics, instructing/teaching and dan testing requirements are the focus of this class. The Dan Class is $10 per class and can be used as make up class for those who meet the requirements.
Thank you for all your hard work this last year and I hope you have a Great New Year!!
Master Andrew Jefferson
I hope you all are having a great time this month and have had awesome holidays!
Just putting out a reminder that there is no class until the week of January 4th 2016. This year sure went by fast!
Have you set a new years resolution yet? Choose something simple…maybe a few simple things! Good luck and we’ll see you in the new year!
Bulsajo TaeKwonDo will be holding our very own Black Belt Tea Ceremony! Our 1st annual ceremony will be held in January 2016!
We will shoot for the middle of the month. No official date as of yet but we will get that to you as soon as possible!
