The OCKicks crew had a great time with Zombie Nims playing games and getting treats on Thursday Oct 28th. Happy Halloween everyone! Tang Boo!
I'm guessing those of us who grew up with the original 1984 version of "wax-on, wax-off" will really enjoy the updated and overhauled version of The Karate Kid. The new "Kid" centers on a young man trying to adjust from the culture shock of moving from the United States to Beijing, China. The "kid" Dre is continuously picked on at his new school until he is rescued by a seemingly mild-mannered maintenance man, Mr Han, who is actually a martial arts master. Check out the new trailer by clicking "read more" below.
OCKicks is planning a movie day in June when all students/familes/friends of the school can go to see the movie together. Answer our poll below and keep your eyes peeled for the invite!
Congratulations to a great show put on by the OCKicks Demo Team at the 2009 Bell Tower Family Fun Festival in RSM. We're so proud of our students and Seon-Saeng Nim Matt Torchia for putting on an awesome demonstration of basic techniques, aerial kicking, aerial and power breaking, fight scenes and Tang Soo Do Forms. If your child wants to be a part of our next demo or be on the Demo Team consider enrolling in our Advanced Training Program. See a staff member for more information.
A personal message from Kwan Jang Nim Sgro about the Tang Soo Do "Founding Fathers Tour - Korea 2010"
Dear San Kil Tang Soo Do Instructor,
Kwan Jang Nim Voelker and I have organized this trip together because we knew many of our senior students expressed a desire to go to Korea but felt it was more of a dream. We took action and were able to mobilize the entire World Dang Soo Do Union and the US Goodwill Tang Soo Do Association. I've personally been to Korea three times. I can say I look forward to this up and coming trip as I know it will really be amazing. We will have access to the most Senior Tang Soo Do Kwan Jang Nims (the Seniors of my teacher, KJN Song Ki Kim). I really don't want you to miss this because, having been the one who conceived of this trip, because of the size and magintude of work in putting a trip like this together, I can honestly say in my lifetime I don't see a trip like this happening again. I cannot stress this enough: this is a once in a lifetime trip!
