Range Martial Arts

The Chisholm RMA site is getting ready for some great spring events!

  • Mr. Fagerstrom and Mrs. Fagerstrom will be teaching classes again beginning in February.  We are looking forward to them sharing their knowledge and experience with our students.
  • We are updating our Academic Rewards Program as of February 1st.  Mr. Fagerstrom will get information ready for you by then . Hopefully it will give students the opportunity to take advantage of the rewards program more conveniently.
  • This month we will be getting ready to share Tang Soo Do with the public.  We are practicing for the demo which will be in March.  That brings us to ...
  • Looking ahead to March 3rd.  We will be doing a demonstration at the Perrella Home show from 10:00-11:00 a.m. at the Hibbing Memorial Building.  Notice that this is a new location for the Home Show!  We will demonstrate all of the styles we do at Range Martial Arts and Range Martial Arts East. The demo will include Tang Soo Do-- TTs, LDs, and the General Class.  It will also include demonstrations of Ki Gong, and Haidong Gumdo.

Range Martial Arts East

Many changes are taking place at RMA East as February begins!

  • RMA East now has online payments available! You can make payments for selected items using our website under the Information heading. Payments are still accepted at the dojang for cash, check, and credit card.
  • FEB 5: We are implementing our rotating curriculum with the new cycle. There have been a few announcements sent out through the RMA East Kicksite system already, so this should not be a surprise for any of our students. During this transition, there will undoubtedly be a few bumps in the road. We will work hard to try and get all those smoothed out as they are encountered. If you have friends or family interested in Tang Soo Do, now would be the time to get them in to start!
  • Feb 8-10: Haidong Gumdo seminar with Senior Chief Master Marshall Parnell. If you are attending and are not registered yet, do it today!
  • Feb 17, 5:30-7:30pm - Parent's Night Out: Nerf War
    • Ages 7+
    • Registration $5 for RMA or RMA East students, and $10 for non-students.
    • Bring your own guns and darts. (We will allow guns that shoot the Nerf N-Strike Elite darts only. No mods allowed! There will be example darts at the dojang so students can confirm what is expected before the event.)
    • Label all of your darts so they don't get mixed with other people's darts during cleanup.
    • Mall closes @ 5pm on Saturdays, so drop-off and pick-up must be done at the back door. It's the last door facing the highway next to the new construction. There is an RMA East sticker on the door.
    • See website link for updated information. https://rmaeast.com/events/parents-night-out-feb-2018

Looking ahead:

  • March 3 - RMA will be doing a demonstration at the Perrella Home show from 10:00-11:00 a.m. at the Hibbing Memorial Building.  We will demonstrate all of the styles we do at Range Martial Arts and Range Martial Arts East. The demo will include Tang Soo Do, Ki Gong, and Haidong Gumdo. We will be looking for volunteers to participate in these demos as well as leaders to help organize during the coming weeks.
  • March 17 - RMA East is hosting Master Robert Frankovich of Pine Tree Taekwondo for a sparring seminar. Students from Karate North schools are also invited. We're hoping to have an even larger turn-out this year! Last year we had around 30 participants. Registration available now!
  • March 17 - RMA East is hosting Chief Master Robert Frankovich of White Tiger Martial Arts and Midwest Haidong Gumdo for a student seminar. If you're curious about the art and want to give it a try, this would be a great opportunity! Last year we had around 25 participants. Registration available now!
