Are you around Harvard over the summer? Come and join us at Taekwondo practices! We would love to have you with us! No experience is necessary, all levels are welcome! If you are a beginner and come out on a regular basis, you could even test for your first color belt at the end of the summer! More information on practices can be found here and you can also e-mail us at harvard.graduateTKD@gmail.com.
With the end-of-year banquet and the belt test being over, we are also nearing the end of normal classes. We will however be having practices throughout the summer, starting May 15th, for those who are around. The current plan looks much like last years:
Tuesdays: practice at Harvard (in June see question on the spreadsheet, else 7-8:30 pm)
Thursdays: going to Master Jang’s school
Saturdays: alternating going to Master Tang’s and Master Park’s school depending on people’s interest
The cost to participate in summer training is $15 in general, to be paid by cash or check at one of the first practices. If interested in going to Master Park’s or Master Tang’s dojang, we will charge $5 per trip for gas/rental cars. For going to Master Jang’s dojang, there will probably also be a small fee which is still to be decided.
There will be a belt test at the end of the summer, so if you come out on a regular basis, you might be able to get your next belt before the new year starts!
