Our belt rank ceremony will take place Thursday, February 8 at 6 p.m. at the school in our formal uniform.
We know that there are a lot of illnesses going around – so, if you become ill and can’t make your testing, please contact us to schedule you into the makeup testing or for another time.
NEW, EASIER TO READ CALENDAR IS NOW AVAILABLE!
We’ve updated our calendar for you, making it easier to see what’s coming up for the month! The calendar includes the color stripe we’re working on, what skill each of those stripes are for, the forms each class is working on, our physical path to mastery daily challenge, and events! Whew! The calendar is attached to this e-mail and is also available at the front desk and in the closed Facebook group.

PATH TO MASTERY – JANUARY HANDOUTS DUE, FEBRUARY HAS NEW CHALLENGES
If you completed our January Path to Mastery handouts, please be sure to turn them in by February 8 in order to earn your Fort Bend TKD lanyard!
Our February paths will focus on kindness for our character path, and a daily squat challenge for our physical path. You can find the physical challenge on our February calendar. Our character path challenge will be to perform and log 10 random acts of kindness on our kindness chain! We’re pretty excited for this one and will be explaining this in more detail at testing, the belt award ceremony, and in classes.
SPARRING WORKOUT FEBRUARY 11, 1 TO 1:45P
Kids, teens, adults who are orange belts or higher ranks are invited to our next sparring workout on Sunday, February 11 from 1 to 1:45 p.m. This workout is to help Mrs. Chapman prepare for my testing – so there’s no instruction taking place – just a LOT of sparring! Students spar as much or as little as they’d like and may attend in non-taekwondo uniform! All you need is your gear, and maybe some water and a towel.
