Belt testing is coming up for kids and juniors on Sunday January 27th. Adult testing will be conducted on an individual bases. Please check with your instructor if you have questions about your test time.
The first Master Level Teaching (or MLT) Round is coming up on January 30th and running through February 5th. Seminars are available to students and beginners alike; you do not have to be a current student of Oom Yung Doe to take a MLT course! The forms being taught this around are Sang Doe (double tai chi sword), Frog Techinque 2 (the second in the Frog Technique line of forms, this form can be taken without having Frog Technique 1) and Sang Chu Ta Ghuk Chang (a higher level of Tai Chi). Also available this week is Iron Hand striking. Most of these courses are offered in the evening in an hour and a half lesson. MLT courses are offered 4 times a year and are often not repeated, so it is important to get into a class if you are interested. Prices vary for each course and this information is available at the school.
Coming up the end of February, we will hold our first Friends and Family night in our new location. Come and see demonstration from students of all ages and levels, share in a potluck and have the opportunity to participate in movement taught by our black belt instructors. The date and time for this event will be posted soon. Please check back for further information.

Things are going well at the new location of Kirkland OYD. Classes are back on schedule and the Kids' and Juniors' lessons are flourshing. With everything being back on track, it is time to start thinking about belt testing! Tests will take place October 5th from 10-11:30am and 7-8:30pm for adults and October 15th 10am-4:45pm for kid's and junior's. Please make sure to check with your instructors for testing times.
Parents! We have heard many of you say that you wish you could train, but cannot find the time. Starting immediately we are offering a class just for parents during the Kids' and Juniors' lessons on Fridays. This class is designed to allow parents to get involved in OYD while their kids are training. As a special introduction, we are offering the FIRST 5 LESSONS AT NO CHARGE! Please inquire with any of the instructors if you are interested.
Also coming up in November is the Adult Tournament. More information will be available soon, but this is a good time to start thinking about if you would like to register to compete or volunteer to help. Instructors will be making announcements during class and updates will be available here as the come. Please inquire for additional information and ways to get involved.
