Knights Hall Field Trip

August 5th, 2018 / / categories: Uncategorized /

To any of the students who are going to the Knights Hall. Please be there around 9:45 – 10:00am. I will meet you in the parking lot. If you are running late, please call the Bulsajo cell 603-703-1914. You can also text it.

If you are late, you must use the call box (012 is the number) to be buzzed in. Also, don’t forget to bring a towel and water. If you own a yoga mat you should bring that as well. Wear comfortable workout clothes.

For out Demo Team to check out. Please note how they Kihap before the breaking, during, and then at the end. Also, in this video, there is an amazing Breaking Fight Choreography that demands tons of timing, coordination (for holders and breaker), and precise board holding. Please note as well that one of the break routines (360 roundhouse kicks) had missed breaks. Even the best teams mess up sometimes but notice the showmanship.

Class Cancellations in August 2018

August 16th, 2018

*This day only applies to Parks & Rec students.* A Walk/Marathon event will be held in honor of a young girl from Goffstown who recently passed away.  They will need the building as a base of operations.

The week of August 20th.  (20th, 22nd, 24th) 2018

*This only applies to YMCA students.*  Classes will continue to run at the Goffstown Parks & Rec during this week.  YMCA students are encouraged to attend the Parks & Rec for classes on Tuesday and Thursday of that week.  Classes will resume at the YMCA August 27th.

On another note,  I would like to thank our students & families at the Parks & Rec for their patience in dealing with our rain day cancellations.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed for good weather for the rest of the summer!

Knights Hall Field Trip

August 5th, 2018.  10am to 12pm.   55 Lake St. #4, Nashua, NH 03060

Students will either need to sign a waiver or have their parents sign a waiver in order to participate.  This trip is for students/fit family members ages 14 and up. Special permission may be given by me to students younger than 14 if I think they are mature enough and physically capable of participating.

I want to stress that I am not in charge at the Knights Hall and they will run the class as they see fit.   Somethings will be similar to our school and many things will not. It is not only a place of learning but of applying.  For the most part, everyone who trains there is training as a fighter. Please sign up with me before or after class.

Poomse Seminar

I would like to try something a little different for our Poomse Seminar but I want to make sure it’s doable.   Parents, if the seminar started at 6:30pm would that be too late? Please let me know in class or via message/email.  I will try to ask everyone as well. The goal is to have a shorter seminar two times during the month of September. One for teens/adults and one for kids.  But I want to make sure the time works. If not, I will schedule a Saturday with our normal Poomse Seminar times.

Dan Testing Fee Change

I have made some changes to our Dan  Testing Fees.  Please see below:

  • Bodan & Dan Refresher testing = $10
  • 1st Dan = $100
  • 2nd Dan = $200
  • 3rd Dan = $300
  • 4th Dan = $400
  • And so on.

Black Belts can add a new embroidered Dan uniform to their fee for $50.  This saves them $20 on the uniform. Payments/installments will be accepted due to the increase in cost.  

*This only applies to Bodan Belts and Black Belts.  Not Gup (color) Belts.*

Kids Class Cancellation 7/17/2018

July 17th, 2018 / / categories: Uncategorized /

The Tuesday Kids Class at the Goffstown Parks&Rec is Cancelled today due to the rain and the need of the Parks&Rec’s summer camp.

I am sorry for the inconvenience everyone. Please remember that the kids can do make up classes on Thursday. Also, any Brown belts and up can come to tonight’s 7:30 class as a make up.

I am still looking for another option for a “Rain Day” location.

Outdoor Testing & TaiJi Seminar!

May 31st, 2018 / / categories: Uncategorized /

Outdoor Testing!
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!
Thank you!

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: ChenYangWu (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! 🙂

Pricing:  Sign up by June 3oth = $30.  Sign up by July 6th = $40.  Sign up the week of = $50.

Sign up and pay before July 1st and get an additional $10 off your total cost for event!

For further information please speak with Master Andy.

Basic Takedowns and Throws Seminar

April 3rd, 2018 / / categories: Uncategorized /

Let’s make use of our new mats! We will be holding a Basic Knok-bok (falling) seminar on April 14th from 10am-1pm at the Goffstown Parks&Rec. 10am-11am will be used for children students and 11:30am-1pm for adult students. What does falling mean for us? It means training ourselves to fall in such a way to cause as little to no damage as possible. Falling practice helps us for regular mundane falls as well as when an opponent throws us. Cost for the event is $10 per student.

On April 21st we will hold what is basically part two of the falling seminar: Basic Takedowns and Throws Seminar. The time slots will be the same as the above. However, in order to attend this event, you must have participated in the falling seminar. Students will put their falling practice to the test while learning how to do maneuvers like the leg hawk, reverse leg hawk, hip toss, “over hook” and “under hook”. Cost for this seminar is $20 per student.

I have a sign-up sheet for both of these seminars as well as a sign-up sheet for those interested a Taiji seminar and a field trip to the Knights Hall.

Seminars

March 27th, 2018 / / categories: Uncategorized /
Hey, out there Bulsajo students and families!
 
I am trying to get an idea of who would be interested in having Master Roger Whidden come back to do another seminar with us? Either another straight up TaiChiChuan seminar or a TaiChi Weapons seminar. The Jian (Chinese straight sword), Dao (Chinese broadsword) or Staff.
 
I know some of you have already let me know but please remind me so I can get an accurate number. These seminars would be open to our families as well and not just students.
 
Also, how many of you would like to train at the Knights Hall as a field trip some Sunday in the summer? I will have to set an age limit on this one as the training is pretty intense. 16 and up or with mine and your parent’s permission.
 
Please let me know. Email, text, message, or on the FB post.
