Dear Students & Parents,
Classes are going well and everyone is training diligently. With spring upon us, it is important to remember to train consistently. It is sometimes hard with all the spring and summer activities, but keep training on your list of priorities and you will see results.
Starting May 1, Kuk Sool T-shirts may be worn instead of the traditional top during the summer months. The traditional top must be worn for testing, promotions, demonstrations and special events. T-shirts are available for $18.00 each, tax included. See your instructor for further details.
On Saturday, April 8, 60 of our students traveled to Folsom to participate in the Pacific Coast World Kuk Sool Won tournament. We had a great time and won many medals. A highlight was when Justin Painter, owner of Placerville Kuk Sool Won, was selected for promotion to 5th degree (master) level. Justin began his training at Gold Country Kuk Sool Won and is one of my most dedicated and humble students.
This summer we will be holding our 16th annual Martial Arts Adventure Summer Day Camp. There will be two sessions. Session I will be June 19th through the 23rd, and Session II will be July 17th through the 21st. This exciting camp features daily special guests, crafts, ball sports, martial arts, a fishing clinic, archery, swimming, and many other activities. Camp is open to ages 5 through 12. We believe this is the most diverse and exciting day camp in Northern California. We offer reservations to Kuk Sool students and returning campers before opening registration to the general public. Our camps always fill early so be sure to reserve your spot soon. See me for additional information.
It is quite an honor to have been chosen by the Union newspaper readers as "Best Martial Arts School" in Nevada County again in 2016. This makes 10 years in a row! We are quite excited about this and would like to thank all of you who voted for us.
On Saturday, May 27, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, we will hold a kids' pizza fun night. There will be games, pizza and a special guest. There is no charge for this evening event, however, sign up is required. This is a gift to all of our Kuk Sool parents. Go out on a date, go to dinner, or enjoy a quiet evening at home. No uniforms for pizza fun night, just casual clothes.
