We wish you and your family a very happy and healthy 4th of July! Since school is out for the summer, let's remind our kids that Independence Day is more than a chance for family and friends to gather for barbecues and fireworks displays, it is an annual celebration to commemorate the courage and faith of our founding fathers in their pursuit of liberty. Let's remind ourselves that there are still courageous men an women serving in our stead who continue to fight for our freedom...

This month we'll discuss one of the 8 Key Concepts of Tang Soo Do: Shin 신 Chook 적 (Expand/Contract or Relax/Tense). Shin Chook is perhaps the most frequently discussed concept when we examine the efficiency of our techniques. This concept has stronger Neh Gung (internal energy) and Weh Gung (external energy) tendencies than its Shim Gung (spiritual energy) counterparts; thus it's application is a bit easier to demonstrate and discuss.
Jillian Michaels talks tough with the people who appear on her shows, The Biggest Loser and Losing it with Jillian, but perhaps that’s because the 36 year old fitness guru once went through similar struggles with weight. She's featured in the new issue of Redbook baring her belly on the cover and some of her childhood secrets in a revealing interview.
In the interview she admits that she struggled with weight at a young age. She says that by the age of 12, she weighed upwards of 175 lbs. “Oh, my God, it was pure hell,” she recalls. “I spent all of eighth grade in my classroom because God forbid I ever left. I was terrorized. And karate saved my life. It all stopped the day I broke two boards with a kick.”
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!”
