NEW CLASS SCHEDULE STARTS DEC 14th.
Because of our growth, we will once
again split classes for both space and curriculum considerations. The change
will occur on Fri, Dec 14th. The revised schedule will be as follows. Beginning
TKD 5:30-6:15 Yellow belt TKD 6:15-7:00 Upper rank TKD 7:00-7:45 Hapkido
Our annual Christmas party and pitch in dinner has been
scheduled for Friday, Dec 14th, at approximately 8:00 pm. (after classes).
Hapkido will be combined with the advanced TKD class to accommodate an early
start to the festivities. We have some fun planned and also have some major
announcements to explain in detail. Please RSVP so we know how many people to
expect. Especially when it comes to layout of the space. The entire family is
welcome regardless of whether they are students or not.
What to bring:
TABLES AND CHAIRS! We are definitely going to be short on theseso please
bring any folding tables and chairs that you may have.
FOOD! This is a
pitch-in. We will provide some of the main dishes, but we need help. To ensure a
variety, we have broken up the responsibilities. We will also start a sign-up
sheet so everyone knows what everyone else is bringing.
White belts: Deserts
Yellow Belt: Side dishes-hot dishes
Green Belts: Salads, dips and other
Purple and up: ice and drinks.
AN END OF AN ERA:
Ms. Charlton will be leaving us after the Christmas
party to pursue other things like grad school and marriage. We thank her for her
service, which has helped GMA grow. More importantly, we are going to miss a
good friend. A replacement is being considered, and if all goes well, you can
meet him at the party (if not prior).
NEW JUNIOR HAPKIDO PROGRAM TO BE LAUNCHED THE START OF NEXT YEAR
Currently Hapkido is reserved for 16 years and older. Mr. Todd Miller has
been working with Mr. Sieg to develop a modified program that is more suitable
for 12-16 year olds. Mr. Miller will be helping teach this program beginning in
2002 during the regular Hapkido class at Martinsville.
