This semester HTKD went to all three ECTC tournaments and apart from having a great time, we also won a lot of medals! At the MIT tournament Kayi won fourth place in the poomsae green belt division. At Cornell Clara and Noemi followed up with earning silver and bronze also in the poomsae green belt division. They also paired up and won silver in C team sparring! Jeffrey competed in the men’s poomsae green belt division and made us proud by winning gold. At Brown the women’s sparring C team (Clara, Noemi and Sindy) kept up the great work by winning bronze and in the poomsae competition, Noemi won gold and Laurie competed in the black belt division and earned bronze. Congratulations to all of you but also all the other competitors who came out to spar and enjoy HTKD!

Kickathon/Spring Schedule

A big thanks to everyone who participated in the Kickathon this last weekend!

After some initial shuffling around of the schedule, we’ve settled on regular meeting times for curriculum and sparring classes for the semester; both the sidebar (to the right of the page) and the Practice Schedule page have been updated with the changes. Note that a group is also getting together for morning workouts in the MAC if you are interested in joining them!

Come Check Us Out!
