Taekwondo lessons

We have reopened our Taekwondo school in a new location.

If you live on the west side of Houston, TX (think Westheimer and Beltway 8) and would like to train in Taekwondo, get back in shape and have a lot of fun, check out our website and give us a call.

I'm not in your area, but I know you did a lot of good for kids with your school. I'm glad you've re-opened. Congrats!

Thank you! It has been a long, hard process. Someday I'll post the entire horror story in MPSIMS, but for now we are concentrating on finishing the mat placements, getting our signs up and getting some new students in the doors!

I have a business trip to Houston this summer. I may have time to stop by and see your studio, but I would only be there one night. And all the martial arts I do are with sword or dagger.

I never browse this forum, well, until today, but ATA? We will be making the drive from Atlanta Thursday (9 hours, ugh!) as my son will be competing with the 9-11 black belts as he tries to qualify for next year's World Championship.

So how did your son do? Did he qualify?

A bump.

World Championships will be held July 8 - 14 this year in Little Rock. I am going to be inducted as a Master at the ceremony on the 13th. Unfortunately, their efforts in the past at streaming the event live haven't worked out well, so they will be posting downloadable video shortly afterwards.

Congratulations! We will be there on Thursday as the boy will be competing for World Champ in the XMA and Creative weapon and open hand competitions.

The streaming worked well last year when we watched the demo team competitions on ESPN 3 from our hotel room (on our iPad), so hopefully it will work this year as well.

The use of weapons to perform Tae Kwon Do which are not normally (traditionally) associated with it: sai, jitte, nunchaku, escrima. This seems to be the Taekwondo equivalent of Rhythmic Gymnastics, just probably a lot more violent (also why they have to use safety weapons rather than the real thing, apparently; let a real sai loose during a competition and somebody could get hurt pretty bad).
