As part of the Open House celebrations, all classes at Be Ryong on Friday, October 5, 2018 will be free and open to the public. Here’s what you need to know:
- All classes, all day, open to the public for free.
- No need to register. Just come 10 minutes before the class starts and check in with Master Yun.
- Wear comfortable you can move in. You will be barefoot on the mat.
- There will TaeKwonDo classes at 4:30pm (kids), 5:15pm (kids and teens), and 6:00pm (kids, teens, adults).
- There will be a HapKiDo class at 6:45pm.
If you or your child is even a little bit interested in the martial arts, this is your chance to experience a real class, meet Master Yun, talk to some instructors, and meet other students.
So come on down on Friday, October 5!
It’s a really big deal when someone takes their 2nd degree black belt test. At Be Ryong, it takes an average of 3 years to get your first degree black belt, and then an additional 5-7 years to get your second degree.
Why so long? The curriculum is much harder: all the kicks are jumping kicks, the forms are long and complicated, and the conditioning needed to take a 2nd degree black belt test is off the charts.
But 12-year old Mac is taking his 2nd degree black belt test on Saturday, December 2, 11am. This test will run at least three hours, most likely longer. So come on down, cheer Mac on, keep him motivated during the 1,000+ push-ups and sit-ups he’ll have to do, and cheer him on during the intense sparring he’ll have to endure. And as always, bring snacks because it’s going to be a long test.
Save the date for the Be Ryong Annual Open House, this year scheduled for Saturday, September 30! The Open House will go from 10am – 2pm. We’ll post the final schedule in the next week or so, but we already know that there will be trial classes and demonstrations.
The award-winning TaeKwonDo and HapKiDo demo teams will show off their kicks, forms and breaking!
Trial lessons will happen in the studio. The demonstrations will take place in the parking lot outside the studio.
If you’re curious about martial arts, want to take a trial class, or just want to see some awesome stuff, come on down on September 30!
