If you would like to register for Harvard GSAS Taekwondo in 2012-2013, go to the registration form here (the registration is for both clubs, undergraduate and graduate, but we will automatically place you on the correct roster). Please also make sure to fill out the waiver (can be found here) and submit it together with payment (if you are paying by cash/check) to a board member. The deadline for registration is 9/17 (if there is a reason why you can’t register by that deadline, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our demo and intro practice will be on Thursday, 9/13 at 8:20 pm in the MAC Mezzanine. Come out to get a look at what we do! After the demo we will have an intro practice, so wear something comfortable to kick in and join us! We have mats, so you don’t need shoes.
There is also a practice on Monday, 9/10 at 7:30 pm in the QRAC (66 Garden St). This is for everyone, so come out to practice with us!
We are also close to finishing our final practice schedule, so come back soon to learn about it.
Hope to see you all next week!
We will be at Dudley Fest 2012 (Wednesday, August 29th, 12:30-3:30) at Dudley House in the Yard. Come by and talk to us to get to know us better and learn what we are all about in person! We will also have more information about introductory practices by then and there will be an interest form to sign up to receive more info in the next weeks to make sure you hear about all the important dates and events. If you want to, you can also sign up for this form online here. Hope to see you there!
Summer is coming to an end soon and we are looking forward to a great Fall 2012 semester. If you are interested in becoming a member and would like to be included on e-mails with information about introductory practices, demos, etc, please fill out the interest form here. This is not a registration for the club yet, but once we are starting registration we will let you know if you are on the list.
We will also be at Dudley Fest 2012 on August 29th, so come visit us there to meet us in person!
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!
If you are interested in summer training at Harvard, please sign up on this form: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dG1sN0d5Y0hBTWgzSmZLQ2JLYzNyNHc6MA#gid=0
Hope to see many of you out this summer!
