2017 Archive

These notices appeared on our web site during the year and were moved off as they became obsolete. They are in reverse order — most recent to oldest — except for the calendar of events, which is at the end. Links were good at the time we posted them, but they often go bad after a while — we don't guarantee them.


Columbus Day

We will be closed on Monday, 10/9/17, for Colubus Day.

Belt Test

The next belt test is scheduled for Saturday, October 14, 2017. Please get your completed application, check, and (children only) copy of your latest report card to one of the Masters BEFORE the test day. There are no classes on test days. Bring sparring gear.

Please arrive about 10 minutes before the start of your test:

    Current Belt Level
10:30 am   Children: white belt through brown belt
11:30 am   Belt ceremony *
    Children: high brown, bo black & black belts
All teens and adults

* If you recently tested for Bo Black belt or a Black belt, you must attend at this time to receive your belt. If you have any questions, please speak to Master Kim.

Family class members: You may test with your children at the adult test or you can test separately. The adult test lasts longer; young children might find it tiring.

Payment: Please make checks payable to "SH Kim Taekwondo." Write the name of the student(s) testing in the memo area. You may pay for the whole family with one check. We cannot process credit card payments on the day of the test. Cash is accepted (exact change is appreciated) but we prefer a check. Cost is $55 for white through low blue belt; $85 for high blue through high brown belt. Black belts please talk to Master Kim at (703) 442-3232.

If you need to make special arrangements regarding the belt test, please check with Master SH Kim before the test day.

Independence Day Holidays

Many of our students and their families are on the road already anticipating the upcoming Independence Day holiday. We wish you all fun and safe travels. Be careful and stay cool!

Our school will be closed 7/3 through 7/8 for the holiday. On Monday, 7/10/17, the school will re-open on our regular schedule.

We are considering making some changes to the class schedule this summer as many of our classes are extremely small due to student vacations. We will let you know by email and also on our website and Facebook page if and when any changes are to be made.
