Quote of the Month

“Once a kata has been learned, it must be practiced repeatedly until it can be applied in an emergency, for knowledge of just the sequence of a form in Karate is useless.” – Gichin Funakoshi

Grandmaster Khalid has more experience in Tang Soo Do than you probably even know.   We have some fantastic pictures of Grandmaster Khalid, his students, sparring, and so much more.  Many of these pictures are older than a great many of our students, and it is not often that you find instructors with this level of history in their training.  Enjoy the pictures and then ask Grandmaster the story behind them – I’m sure they’ll be interesting!

May 5th 2012 was a special day for quite a few people – we had more than a dozen test candidates testing for belts ranging from their Pre-dan all the way through Sa Dan (4th Degree).  Test candidates came from all over, including members from Sierra Vista and parts of California.   The two day event tested each candidate in their basics, combinations, one and three steps, self defense, hyung (forms), endurance, wisdom, Korean terminology, kyuk pah (breaking), dare ee on (sparring), and much more.  Master candidates were also required to teach a section of class focusing on demonstrating how they’d pass their knowledge to other students.  Topics included proper use of your hips, building endurance for kicking, gun self defense, and grappling techniques.   Check out the pictures below from the event!
