Summer is officially upon us and that means the Olympics are right around the corner! Greetings students! Master Mike and I are both very excited to watch Steven Lopez, Mark Lopez and Diana Lopez become the first group of siblings since 1904 to compete on the same Olympic team and represent the United States in Tae Kwon Do. Check out this website to learn more about our 2008 Taekwondo Olympic team and the link for the USA Today Weekend article can be found here.
Quick reminder: Master Mike’s birthday is on Monday, June 30th. Unfortunately, we will not be having class that day, so if you’d like to celebrate Mike’s birthday anyways, it would have to be on Saturday, June 28th at the Rec Room. If you have any ideas, please email me at MasterMikeTKD@Yahoo.com.
We are placing the Advanced Self-Defense on Fridays at the ISG and Saturdays at the Rec Room on temporary hiatus for the summertime. We will resume these classes on October 3rd and 4th, respectively.
I’ll leave you today with a video tribute of Steven Lopez! – Mr. D
