Demonstration team practices

Oneonta Taekwon-Do has some fantastic opportunities to do some local demonstrations this spring and summer.  Demonstrations are tons of fun because we get to show people what we do who may never have seen a live demonstration before.  It’s a great time to invite your friends and to proudly represent our school and our union.

For all important dates, please visit and subscribe to our school calendar!

Given the 3 dates we have coming up, we should be able to offer all students an opportunity to perform.  Our first requirement is that you must be at least a yellow belt.  The second requirement is that you attend the practices on Saturday mornings from 9:45-10:15.  (Color belts should attend the 9am class as a warmup.)  Children in the Black Belt Club will be practicing on Mondays and Fridays.

All students wishing to be part of the demonstrations must talk with Master Mannion or Instructor Brown as soon as possible.  Our first demonstration is at the Ice Cream Social on June 2nd.  Here is a video from last year’s demonstration.  Thanks and have fun everyone!
