2018 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.


Holiday Schedule

SH Kim Tae Kwon Do will be closed Wednesday and Thursday (7/4 and 7/5) for Independence Day. We will be open 7/6 and 7/7. We hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday.
