@rma Spring and the sun are here again! The snow is nearly gone. (“happy dance”) Get outside and move your body in the sunshine!

@rmaeast #tangsoo school-specific student manuals are available through your Kicksite account in the document library! Red & Blue belts, as discussed in class, this manual is slowly being put together to be sure items are as accurate as possible.

@rmaeast @rma #tangsoo #haidong #kigong We have been contacted with opportunities to help give back to the communities of the Iron Range. Habitat for Humanity will be building homes in West Eveleth this summer. If you are interested in helping out, contact Mr. K so we can see if a build day or a paint day is something that can be arranged.

@rmaeast students and parents don't forget to get into the appropriate BAND for the program(s) you are part of. It is a great way to stay in touch with students and instructors, know important dates, and even share pictures from class and events. It is also the quickest way to find out if classes have been canceled due to bad weather or road conditions! Tang Soo Do · Haidong Gumdo
