Taekwon-Do News August 2020


Covid 19

Covid 19 has created some interesting protocols moving forward. But we think we are on the right track. The most important aspect is if you are not feeling well or have come in contact with someone that is showing symptoms, do not come to Taekwon-Do. Come to class in uniform. Use the available sanitizer. All spectators should wear a mask, we have some that can be provided. Bring your shoes in with you and put them along the sides. When leaving use either the front or back door. Be smart and we will all be fine!

Class Schedule

The class schedule for the rest of August will be Tuesday and Thursday 6:30-7:30 for junior belts and 7:30-8:30 for senior belts.

Fall Registration

Registration for the 2020-2021 Season will be held on Tuesday, September 1st. 6:30-8:00 pm. All members should try to register that night.

Testing

There will be a testing in September. Some of you have waited a long time for a promotion. A special good luck to Alison Kennedy on her Black Belt test! An exact date and time will be chosen once September gets started.

Encyclopedia and Gear

If anyone is interested in purchasing a paddle, shield, sparring gear, a new uniform or encyclopedia, let Master Mageau know. These items can be purchased at any time!

2019/2020 Registration

Registration for the 2019/2020 season will be held on Tuesday September 3rd, and Thursday September 5th from 6-8pm. During this time students are encouraged to bring their doboks and practise while their parents fill out registration forms. Please remember to bring your Alberta Health Care number. Registration fee for all returning members is $30.

Welcome BBQ

On Saturday, September 21st from 12-3pm Paladin will be hosting a Welcome BBQ. All students and their families are invited. During registration, and in the few weeks after, there will be a sign-up sheet so we know how many people are attending and if they would like a hamburger or hotdog. Hopefully the weather cooperates and will have some games outside, with possible prizes!

Sparring Gear

During September Paladin will be collecting orders for sparring gear. A complete set (hands, feet, shins, helmet) will cost $135. It is recommended that each regular student have at least their own helmet which is $50. All students blue belt and up should have their own complete set of gear.

Testing News

The last class of August will be testing for Little Ninjas. August 27th and 29th for Tuesday and Thursday classes. There will also be a Black Belt exam held on Thursday, August 29th for Mr Danyluk to be promoted to 2nd Degree. His test will start at 8:30pm

Class Cancellations

There are no class cancellations in September. The first official class of the new season is Monday, September 9th. Once September starts classes will once again be held 3 days a week!!!

Facebook

If possible students, or parents, should become friends with Paladin on Facebook. It is the easiest way to put out quick notifications on class changes, or upcoming event reminders etc.

Announcements

Hello Everyone,

I hope all of you are doing well, happy and healthy!!

Obviously classes will not be resuming in the middle of February. I was really hoping things would have improved more and we could fire back up again, but I guess we have to wait a little longer. The vaccine is rolling out (slowly) and cases numbers and hospital numbers are dropping.

We just have to wait a little longer.

I wish all of you the best and I hope to see you all soon!!

Cheers

Master Phil Mageau
