I hope you had a relaxing holiday and that your year is off to a great start!
With the new year, our new class schedule is now in place. You can find the schedule here. The schedule is designed to put students of similar experience or skill level together since they will likely be working on the same things, but if you can’t make the needed adjustments to the new time slots, it’s okay. Just let me know and we’ll work it out. And, of course, students are welcome to participate in classes outside their rank — but if they’re in a lower rank class, it’ll be more review, and if they’re in a higher rank class, it’ll be more challenging.
I’m looking forward to all the good things coming up at HMA this year. We still have our annual winter training camp with Penn State to come, more ninja nights, and as the weather warms up we’ll have more outdoor training camps and other special events. This summer will be our third Summer Camp, and it’s always getting better.
I’m so grateful for the continued support of all the families of students who train at Hwarang. Together we’ll help our students through another year of learning to be stronger and more focused.
We had more than 30 students earn belt promotion for our most recent belt ceremony! We’ve added some great pictures for that and for our outdoor training camp to our photo gallery. Check out a preview below! Thanks again to all the families who contributed to the belt ceremony. Without you it could never be such a huge success. And congratulations to all the students who earned their next rank. They’ve all worked so hard for it!
Hope everyone’s staying safe and warm during this especially cold holiday season. See you at the dojang!
We’ve finally gotten a good photo gallery set up for the website! Check it out to keep up with what we’ve been up to recently at Hwarang. You can find the photo gallery here or under the Media drop down on the menu bar.
Here are just some samplings from the photos of our most recent events!
August belt ceremony has come to pass along with the celebration of Hwarang Martial Arts 2 year anniversary! It was incredible to see all the students having so much fun, parents being involved, and our HMA family growing stronger together. 2 years have passed thus far with many more to come. Thank you everyone who, in small and large ways, contributed to our success as a Columbia’s best martial arts school!
