Testing

The color belt testing will be held on Monday, February 10th starting at 6:30pm. Any non-testing students are encouraged to attend. All color belt testing fees are 40$ and should be paid prior to testing. Good luck to everyone! Little Ninjas will be testing on their last class of February. February 25th for Tuesday students and February 27th for Thursday students. Any Little Ninjas testing for yellow belt will be required to pay a 50$ testing fee, if they are ready!

Class Cancellations

All classes will be cancelled on Monday, February 10th due to the testing. All classes are also cancelled on Monday, February 17th due to family day.

ITF Status Cards and Fees

ITF status cards are due. As a member of the ITF every year every color belt, black belt, and instructor must purchase a status card. The fee for color belts is 20$ and for Black Belts the fee is 50$. Please submit this fee before the end of February.   

Sudden Class Cancelations

Due to some really cold weather in January, Paladin decided to cancel class one evening. In the event of sudden or unexpected class cancelations Paladin does attempt to inform everyone. Please check your email, or join Paladin on Facebook. We apologize if anyone showed up to find the doors locked!!

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!

Taekwon-Do News January 2020

Happy New Year

Paladin Taekwon-Do and Master Mageau would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! All the best in 2020 to everyone, and keep kicking!

Class Schedule

Starting on January 6th, 2020, the class schedule will be as follows. Monday 6:15-715, white and yellow belts. 7:15-8:15, green and blue belts, 8:15-9:15 red and black belts. Mondays will now be considered to be technical classes. Patterns and rank specific techniques will be the main focus. Students can double shift classes, meaning a green belt can attend from 6:15-8:15. Essentially as long as your rank is higher than the class required you can attend. Tuesday and Thursday classes will remain the same.

Encyclopedia

Finally the condensed encyclopedia of Taekwon-Do is available for purchase! Our regular supplier of doboks and belts has some in stock, but supplies are limited. Having your own encyclopedia is extremely beneficial. For January, if you would like to get your own copy, they can be purchased for $225.  The last time they were available was roughly 10 years ago!!

ITF Status Cards and Fees

The 2019 color belt cards and pins have finally arrived! 2020 status cards fees are due now. As a member school of the ITF all members are required to purchase status cards. The color belt fee is 20$ and for black belts it is 50$. The ITF membership fee is due before the end of February, please include this fee in either your January or February dues.

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
