Good afternoon, all.

It's been a very good week of training!  Several are preparing for our Region 6 Tournament on September 22nd and most everyone is focused.

Our lesson is preparing with purposeEveryone should be practicing at home, a little bit at a time, to do their best.  For both the tournament and a rank exam coming up.

It's finally here!  LMAC has three students and their families making the trip to Greensboro, NC for some excellent competition and camraderie.  I leave Tuesday early afternoon to head up and spend the next few days helping set up the hospitality suite, and greeting and meeting visitors, in the tournament hotel.  I'll also spend some time brushing up on the referee manual for judging.

Competitors Packing Checklist

  • dobohk  (must be complete with all patches)
  • belt
  • sparring gear  (I'm expecting Kat's tomorrow afternoon)
  • mouthpiece
  • cup  (for the guys)

Everything else is optional  :)


REMINDER:  No Classes Monday 7/9 - Thurs 7/12/2018


COMPETITORS:  If possible, please video your martial artist's competition for me to review.  You won't be allowed on the floor, but with a camera and tripod if you have it you can get good quality from outside the competition area.

  • Forms - video your martial artist and all their competitors
  • Sparring - just video your martial artist's matches

Always remember, show up to do your best.  If you've properly prepared (translate: did what I suggested you do) you will walk off the floor with your head held high, win or lose.

If you didn't do what I asked...


Tournaments are won and lost in practice.  Find joy in the practice.


Competitors and families, I'll see you in Greensboro!

Tang Soo!

We had a nice week of training this last week!  This is a good ramp-up to preparing for the World Championship for a few, and the Fall Region 6 Tournament for a few more.  Even if you (or your child) isn't participating in an event, your energy is needed to build up those who are.  Those who will be getting anxious for the competition.

Deadlines are fast approaching for summer events.  Below are links to the two big ones.  If you're going get signed up.

Speaking of summer, the class days and times remain the same.

No Classes, Monday 4/9/2018.

See everybody Tuesday.

Dear Mom/Dad,

Thank you for signing me up at LMAC.

Reminder:  no class this week.
