Zumba, t-shirts, sneakers, and lots of Yellow

Happy Birthday to Taekwon-Do (and Finn)!  April 11, 1955 is the day Taekwon-Do was given it’s official name by General Choi Hong Hi.


If you haven’t heard about Zumba®, you haven’t heard about the most exciting thing to happen in the fitness industry.  It’s an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health.  Their trademark phrase “Ditch the workout, join the party” says it all!  Oneonta Taekwon-Do is proud to announce that classes will be offered on Tuesdays and Fridays at 5:30pm!  For more information, please see our Zumba page.  Classes are extremely popular so reserve your spot by buying classes online.

Promotion test

Please come and support your friends, family, and classmates this Friday.  Last count indicated 11 white belts were testing.  The do-jang will be turning a new color next week – yellow!  Students are reminded to complete a test form and submit a check no later than Thursday.  The test will begin at 6pm sharp.  All students should arrive early to warm up and prepare.  Please stay for Stella Luna pizza and beverages.

Test for free

Now that our white belts are graduating, there is room in the class for a few more beginners.  Please invite a friend to come watch class.  If your friend signs up for 3 months, you have your choice of a free uniform or your next test free.

T-Shirt season has arrived

It has been our tradition to allow t-shirts in class instead of do-bok tops from Memorial day to Labor day.  This year is no exception.  T-shirts must be Oneonta Taekwon-Do or SJ Kim T-shirts.  A new batch is in stock.  Pick one up for $15.


Our proximity to Neawha park makes it an ideal place to train this summer.  Look forward to having classes there a few times this summer, weather permitting.  Please keep a pair of running shoes in your bag or talk to a black belt about ordering some Taekwon-Do shoes.

50 minute classes

Lately, classes have been running a little longer and it’s time to officially announce that we will be extending classes by 3-5 minutes consistently.  It is time for us to train a little harder and a little longer.

Red belt and black belt reminder

At least one annual attendance at a union event is mandatory.  Grandmaster Kim offers the competitions twice a year, a summer camp, an annual seminar and we try attend class in NYC at least twice a year.  All red belts are expected to attend a union event prior to testing for black belt.  All black belts are expected to attend at least one event per year.  Observance of Taekwon-Do culture and Taekwon-Do International culture are critical to our success as a school.

In House Massage Therapy

Kate Pavlacka is now booking appointments.  A massage after class and a nice shower is a blissful way to end the day.  If you have an injury that is particularly nagging, Kate is trained to help alleviate pain, stiffness, and soreness.  I found her session to be both deeply relaxing and very effective and highly recommend her.  Contact her on the facebook page for Limber Body Longevity Wellness.  With Mother’s day and Father’s day approaching, now is a good time to request a gift certificate.
