Weekly Update October 14-18
SKILLS STRIPE FOR THE WEEK
It’s a new testing cycle and we start earning new stripes again!
Monday and Tuesday, students will have a shot at earning their GREEN stripe:
Basic Skillz – Kicks
Taekwondo – Kicks
Wednesday and Thursday, students will have a shot at earning their BLUE stripe:
Basic Skillz – Control
Taekwondo – First 1/4 of their form
On Fridays, Skillz students will work on either their green or blue (or both) stripes, depending on who needs what stripe.
Taekwondo students will be working on FORMS ONLY on Fridays. Our class schedule for Fridays has changed so we have plenty of time to work on all forms! Be sure to check the new schedule so you know when to attend class!
You can look at the schedule on our app, download a PDF file here, or take a printed copy at the front desk.

Our app FINALLY has an update and is be fully functional!
Be sure to open & update, or install if you haven’t yet (install via the app store or Google Play by searching for Fort Bend TKD).

With the new app, you will now register for events and activities and purchase pre-order items – no more going to the front desk.
Additionally, should you need an in-stock item like gear or uniform, you can message Mrs. Chapman via the app to let her know, and she’ll have the item waiting for you at the front desk and will charge the card on file.

NEW CLASS SCHEDULE FOR FRIDAYS
Our class schedule for taekwondo students will change on Fridays to focus on preparing ALL students for our upcoming regional tournament. Friday classes will be Form Fridays. Classes are 20 minutes in length, and students will ONLY work on forms during their listed class time.

Students will also have a chance to work on tournament board breaking in the 20 minutes before or after their form class time. For example, Orange – Sr. Green belts can work on board breaking from 5-5:25p or 5:50-6:15p. We reserve the right to limit the number of students who are practicing board breaking.
In addition to the Friday class schedule change, 2nd and 3rd-degree black belts will now be able to work on their forms on Tuesdays from 6:55-7:30p. Colored belt teens and adults will attend the 7:30-8:15p class time on Tuesdays.
