Congratulations to all the students who participated in District Championships this past weekend! It was a new and different experience and our students handled the challenge with awesome attitudes! We’re very proud of everything they have accomplished!!

Special Congratulations go out to Mr. Thomas Burkman who took 1st place in Sparring, Mr. Eric Packer who took 1st place in both Sparring and Combat Weapons, and Mrs. Nancy Ansley who took 1st place in Sparring!! Well done!!

And now… it’s time to set your sights on World Championships! 😉

Congratulations to all the Color Belts who kicked off their summer vacations by advancing in rank! But just because it is summer, don’t slack off in your training! Maintain that focus and discipline and keep up with your classes so you can reach your goal of becoming a Black Belt!!

Special THANKS go out to Mrs. Carpenter, Mr. Burns, Mr. Riggs, Mrs. Radkevich, and Mr. Dmitri Radkevich for showing up to help out with the graduations and support all the Color Belts on their Black Belt journey!

Have you seen the latest edition of ATAWorld Magazine? Our very own Sr. Master Michael Niblock, is featured in this edition reflecting on the past as he moves toward the future as a Chief Master Nominee!! 🙂

Dads train free during the month of June! You heard correctly. Why not start your Saturday by doing something a little more fun than mowing the lawn and join your kids in class instead? Not only will you get a great workout, you will leave even more motivated to get that yard work done. It may sound counter-intuitive, but these TKD classes really do get you ready to go, Go, GO!! Come try it out and see for yourself!

Juniors, don’t forget that this Sunday, June 16th, is Father’s Day! Be sure to treat dad to a nice, relaxing day! He has definitely earned it after all the times he has scared away the monsters from under the bed, and driven hours to get you to and from competitions, and taken care of that bug that was bigger than your hand… and especially for when he didn’t tell mom about that thing you did that you weren’t supposed to… (That was a “learning experience”, by the way, so learn from it and don’t repeat it!) 😉

Niblock’s ATA wishes all our TKD Dads and Granddads a very restful and relaxing Father’s Day!! 🙂
