Please be advised we will be closed on Monday, Labor Day. We will re-open on Tuesday, September 2nd with our Fall Schedule.
Boy was camp a lot of fun! We had class Friday night, then a total of four classes on Saturday and a wrap up on Sunday. Everyone was challenged to do their best and everyone rose to the challenge. Glen Ridge TKD really did well and each person did us proud.
Grandmaster Kim is always a fantastic teacher, and we had the added treat of a self-defense class from Master Morris of Asheville Sun Soo Tae Kwon Do, as well as a Black Belt patterns class taught by our own Master Meany. Sunday morning's class was a wrap up of the weekend's lessons taught by Master Nathanson--who we have the privilege of learning from in the late evening Adults classes.
The Master Instructors who run Taekwon-Do International are working on details for next year's camp, and we will pass along details once we have them.
And for the not-easily-queasily, we have some animated GIFs from the demonstration. Actually we have a whole page of them and it includes some Mighty Lions too!
The Fall schedule is now available online and at the front desk.
Please remember that the fall schedule starts right after Labor Day, the week of 9/1.
We will also be closed on Labor Day.
We are very sad to report on the passing of Grandmaster Ruben Casanova, 8th Degree Black Belt. He was a student and instructor for Grandmaster Suk Jun Kim and displayed an incredible fierceness and dedication to Taekwon-Do. In training and in competition there was no one as focused and serious, but out of the ring and away from the do jang he was always ready with a joke, ready to make people laugh.
Please read Grandmaster Kim's announcement on the Taekwon-Do International website. There is nothing more we can add to his tribute, no way we could say it better.
Our sympathies go to his family and friends, and to all of his students.
