News for July


Our apologies for the short notice but ALL classes will be cancelled from July 20th  -  August 3rd for a short summer break due to low attendance and planned vacations.  Classes will resume as per the regular schedules on Tuesday August 4th.

Anyone who has paid for Tae Kwon Do or Hapkido will get a credit on their next monthly dues for the missed time.

Enjoy your summer!   Don't forget to keep raising funds for the MS Bike ride on August 22nd and 23rd.   We will be holding a break-a-thon to help encourage fund raising on August 20th where for every $20 raised, students will get to break one board of their choice.  More details will follow.  Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $3000.

Thanks and have a great Summer!!
