June 30th 10am to Finish.
Testing will be held at the Goffstown Parks & Rec as usual and starting at 10am for ALL students who are testing. This testing, we will not be separating the children and adult students. Also, all basics and self-defense will be tested during the week of the 30th. Testing on Saturday will be Poomse, Creative Poomse, Sparring, and Breaking.
The test itself should only take a couple of hours, 10am – 12pm. After testing will enjoy a short demo by our demo team followed by food and fun. Students will be allowed to wear dobok pants and a Bulsajo t-shirt instead of the normal full dobok. If you don’t have a Bulsajo t-shirt you can wear a Blank / Plain t-shirt in either gray, black, blue, red or yellow. Regular shorts will not be allowed, summer doboks are fine though.
Students should have sports sunblock, a towel, and plenty of water. Testing will, of course, be outside unless the weather does not allow it. That being said we will need a “Set Up Team” this year. We will be placing all of our puzzle mats out for use during the testing no matter the weather. This is a time consuming process for one person so a team of at least 5 people would be great! The “Set Up Team” would need to be there by 9am to set up mats and help with any other set up we may need. Those interested should speak to Master Andy.
Potluck! Be on the lookout for the sign up sheet! A list will be posted on Facebook as well a physical copy at each class. As always anyone who wants to participate in the water balloon fight should have something appropriate to wear. Everyone who plays must also help with clean up.
Any help cleaning up after the event will be very appreciated!
TaiJi Chuan Seminar
July 15th, 4pm – 7pm
On July 15th at the Goffstown Parks & Rec. from 4pm to 7pm, Bulsajo TKD will be hosting a special guest. Master Roger Whidden of Whidden’s School of Fitness will be coming up to teach a Tai-Ji Chuan seminar for us. Those who took the seminar the last time enjoyed themselves and we believe everyone will again.
What is it?
Tàijíquán; ???, is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. The term taijirefers to a philosophy of the forces of yin and yang, related to the moves. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of tàijíquán are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements.
Today, tai chi has spread worldwide. Most modern styles of tai chi trace their development to at least one of the five traditional schools: Chen, Yang, Wu (Hao), Wu and Sun. All of the former, in turn, trace their historical origins to Chen Village. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tai_chi)
We will be learning Yang Style. Master Roger is a disciple of Grandmaster Yang, Jwing-Ming the founder of YMAA (Yang’s Martial Arts Association) and a highly respected master in Chinese martial arts.
Who can attend? This is a great experience for anyone 12 and up! No previous experience in martial arts is needed! 🙂
