The OCKicks crew had a great time with Zombie Nims playing games and getting treats on Thursday Oct 28th. Happy Halloween everyone! Tang Boo!
On Sunday, Oct 24th, Team OCKicks competed in the 2010 AAKS "Great Pumpkin" Tournament in Corona, CA and returned with 12 trophies! We're extremely proud of their courage and sportsmanship. Whether you came home with top honors or not we hope you enjoyed the experience and learned something valuable to apply to your training. Parents you too should be proud of the efforts and courage your children displayed.
And now for the results...
There's more new COLOR in the school! We are pleased to announce the promotion of 6 Tang Soo Do students in Gup Shim Sa #20! The test preceded our open house and challenged a small group of students who showed a large amount of energy and enthusiasm, highlighted by Blake Evans who promoted to 4th Gup Green Belt.
Check out A Letter to Parents on our FAQ tab. It was written by Tom Callos, 6th Dan Master instructor and student of Master Ernie Reyes Sr.
"The magic that forms in the long term relationship between a martial arts teacher and his or her students makes them an incredibly valuable, but all too often unacknowledged, part of 'the village' that can help raise your child to be confident, self-disciplined, resilient, and resourceful."
Evidence of this spirit is seen in the video taken during Cho Dan examination in end of December 2008 at JKS Honbu Dojo, Tokyo, Japan. Showing part of the kihon techniques required for black belt - demonstrated by a 6 year old boy and a 7 year old girl - they both passed. The patience, persistence, persuasiveness and skill of their instructor combined with their commitment and that of their parents is evident in these kids' actions. Join our instructors as we endeavor to bring out the very best in you and/or your child at OCKicks.
We are a family-friendly community of martial artists, of all ages, who are committed to providing a safe and supportive approach to improving physical health, confidence and self-esteem. We like to say that “Families that kick together, stick together!”
