Hello out there to all of our Black Belts and their families! Our 3rd Annual Black Belt Ceremony is quickly approaching and its time to figure out food for our Pot Luck. Please either let me know at the Dojang or via our Facebook page (there is a post about it), FB message or email on what you can bring and I take note of it. I will take care of plates, napkins and utensils. 🙂
No classes today, Thursday January 4th, 2018 due to the weather.
Stay safe, stay warm.
I have updated our website! 🙂
All of the Gup (color belt) and Dan (bodan and Black Belt) testing requirements have been updated so that you can view them and click a link for a pdf download or printable document. I have also made pages for Gup Terminology & Knowledge (this has all the beginner, intermediate and advanced terminology and knowledge answers for testing) as well as a page for Bodan & Dan Terminology & Knowledge. The download page has also been updated and I think I solved the problem with the files. But I won’t know till some of you check. 🙂 I also added our stripe sheet to our downloads page in case anyone needs it around testing time.
Updated the rank requirements for Gup, Bodan and Dan belts. Gup and Bodan belt changes are very small.
I goofed on us having class today. I thought the YMCA would be open and didn’t bother to check with them. I am very sorry everyone. So yeah, no class today January 1st 2018. Regular classes will start up again tomorrow.
By the way: Happy New Year!
Just as a reminder to everyone. There are no classes today or all of next week. Happy Holidays and I hope you all have a great new year! See you January of 2018!
Classes are a go so far for today. Buy as always, please use your own judgment on whether or not to come in. If you decide to, please use caution.
We are a GO for tonight!
Kids should dress comfortable and are allowed to bring a blanket & pillow or comfy chair for the movies.
Parents please drive safe. 🙂
Parents Night Out! December 9th 6pm-9pm
Instead of a Holiday party this year, we are going to do a Parents Night Out. What is this? Well it’s a chance for parents to have a few hours to do whatever they like! But what will the kids do? Well they will get to do arts and crafts, play games, eat pizza and watch a couple of movies!
The movies we have chosen are: A Charlie Brown’s Christmas and Disney’s A Christmas Carol starring Jim Carrey (rated PG).
- When: December 9th from 6pm to 9pm
- Where: Goffstown Parks&Rec
- Cost: $20 for one, $15 each for two or more.
- Please note that children must be 6 years of age or older. Parents should know “A Christmas Carol” is rated PG.
*Please sign up and pay in advance. We need at least 10 kids to hold this event. If we have to cancel, refunds will be handed out the following week*
Our last test of the year is fast approaching! December 16th from 10am to 4pm at the Goffstown Parks & Rec. As usual it will be a “split” testing: Children will test 10am to 12pm & Adults will test 1pm to 4pm. Our demo team will be doing a short demo in between the two tests! So please be sure to either stay a little longer or come in a little sooner to check it out it! The demo will start at 12:20pm.
Please remember that a full dobok is required for those who have one. Testing fees are due by testing please.
Good luck to all those who are testing!
(Please note that testing results may not be in till the new year.)
Our winter vacation this year shall begin Friday December 22nd and end Sunday the 31st. Classes will resume Monday January 1st 2018! We hope that everyone is setting good new years goals and has a safe and happy holiday!
