Grandmaster An’s Memorial

Just a reminder for those of you who had the honor of training with or knowing Grandmaster An and his family.  The memorial for Grandmaster An is this Saturday, November 6th, from 4pm to 6pm.  It will be held at Tiger An’s TaeKwonDo:  1519 Middlesex St, Lowell, MA 01851

If you would like to send flowers, and or sympathy cards, please send them to the address above.  The An’s ask that flowers be delivered by this Friday, November 5th, so they can arrange them nicely for the memorial.  I will be ordering the flowers from our school tomorrow.  If you were interested in donating to that flower order, today will be the last day.  Please use our Paypal / Venmo if you wish to contribute.  For those of you who have already contributed, I cannot thank you enough!  I also want to say thank you to everyone who has reached out to me with condolences, it is appreciated.

Uniforms

Now that we are more or less back to classes five days week, I would like to get everyone who is a white belt and up, wearing uniforms again.  During the lockdown and the initial time getting back to classes I have been very relaxed on this formality.  In addition, I would like to remind everyone to please wear Bulsajo TKD shirts, martial arts themed shirts, or plain shirts if they are not going to wear the uniform top. No belts students can still wear comfortable workout clothes for class.

If you or your child’s uniform no longer fits, please speak with me about getting a new one.  I also have a few old ones kicking around that are completely free if they fit.  In fact, if you are getting a new uniform, please consider giving me the old one so that I can pass it onto a student who might need it.

December Testing!

December testing will be held the week of December 6th to the 10th at our normal class times.  Belts will be given the following week.  Please make sure to ask for help with any of your testing requirements.  Below are links to the children’s self-defense videos for testing.

Class Cancelations & Winter Vacation

No In Person Teen / Adult Class Tomorrow (November 4th)!
Apologies for a last minute cancelation!  The Parks & Rec. needs to use the main room for a special sports seminar and we have been asked to cancel our 7:30pm class. The Parks & Rec. apologizes for this inconvenience, and thanks us for our understanding.  Our 5pm kids class is a go though.  We will have our 7:30pm virtual class as normal, please use the link / meeting ID below.
(This does not and will not happen often, in fact the Parks & Rec. hasn’t asked us to cancel any classes in a long time, even before the lockdown.)
