The Perseverance Stripe

The real heroes are at the hospitals helping families along with all the essential workers who help keep our communities running each and every day.

In recognition of the above families and our Taekwondo students who have been attending our virtual classes on zoom and FB Live. We will have our students earn a RED PERSEVERANCE STRIPE on their Taekwondo belts. This is a sign of respect and thanks to all the families who are on the front lines daily. Yes, Black Belts may earn this stripe as well.

In addition this stripe will remind our students that they have the perseverance of a Taekwondo Black Belt as we continue to move forward in our Taekwondo journey's.

As you know we cannot stop by your home and award these stripes. Therefore, we can award the Perseverance Stripe when we return. Or if you happen to have red electrical tape in your home and would like to award your children with this red stripe we would be honored to see them with their new Perseverance Stripe. After all, it's our families that are making this happen together. Thank you.  

Thank you for making us part of your day

Over the past month we have had many of our families reach out to us. Thanking us for helping their children and families keep a since of normalcy in their days. But the truth is, we wanted to say, "Thank you". Thank you, for your love of our Taekwondo program and the character building that Taekwondo fosters. Our family will continue to do everything we can do to help you reach your health and fitness goals through this season.

Warmly The Yuhasz family and our Team of Black Belts

Wednesday's at 3:00pm we are hosting a Bring-A-Friend and PTA Taekwondo Lesson on Zoom!
We didn't realize that our free community class on Wednesday's would turn into a friend "chat session". After a few basic Taekwondo techniques in our community class there was a natural conversation that made our students and their friends smile while sharing Taekwondo.

Please join us this Wednesday for our Taekwondo class as a fun way to exercise while practicing social distancing. This is a great way to see your friends in Taekwondo! We also reached out to Shenendehowa's PTA's and a few on the schools will be joining us as well.

Please share this zoom meeting number for our 3:00pm Character Building Community Classes with your friends. Zoom meeting number: 920-7160-4737. Families looking to join our classes NEED to email Master Yuhasz at; godabike@yahoo.com for the password.

We are so thankful for your support.
We had over eighty (80) families watching our lessons so far. Please share our lessons on social media.
Regarding memberships we appreciate our families trusting us by accepting our online program, Facebook ADK TKD LIVE and ZOOM and our YouTube series until we get back on the mat. This situation places a great strain on small businesses and we have been forced to close for the time being, many small business will not be able to able to recover. Please understand, I personally guarantee every family will be completely satisfied upon recovering from this situation.
Sincerely,
Master Yuhasz and family
