Website Functioning

By Member 1bfd8c0 on February 2nd

Thankfully the website is back in full working order, so there will hopefully be more frequent updates posted on here. The semester is well under way, and I expect to see everyone in class regularly. While attendance is not mandatory, remember it is necessary if you expect to advance in rank. Also, feel free to bring any potential members to try out a class. We still offer free self-defense sessions every Monday and Wesneday from 6:30pm-7:00pm, free of charge! This is an exciting opportunity for anyone interested in learning some basic self-defense but cannot commit to a 2-hour class multiple times a week. Feel free to contact me at the email located on the left side of the page at any time with questions.

Respectfully,

Liam Geoghan

About Penn State Korean Karate Club

About
Our club was founded and is taught by Mr. James Del Real. For over 30 years, Mr. Del Real and his assistant instructors have been teaching at Penn State. The basic goals of our club are to teach a style of Martial Arts that provides practical self-defense, promotes physical and mental strength, and improves self-confidence and self-esteem.

Style
Our style of karate is derived from, but not limited to Tae Kwon Do, a strong Korean Martial Art form. To make a stronger and more effective system, our teachings incorporate a wide range of styles:

American Boxing 

Jujitsu

"Street-wise" Fighting

Weapons and Ground Fighting

Workouts
Club Workouts focus on:

Aerobic Conditioning

Strength Exercises

Stretching and Technique Excercises

Sparring, Kata (Forms), and Self-Defense


Beginners to Advanced
Beginners are taken to the side and taught by their own instructor for their first semester. These teachings emphasize stretching, self-defense, and techniques necessary to acquire the first belt rank.

Students with previous Martial Arts experience are invited to work out with the advanced class which has the benefit of several black belts present to instruct.


Open Workouts
Mondays and Wednesdays are our formal workout classes from 6:30pm-8:30pm in 106 White Building. Saturdays and Sundays are our open workouts.  Open workouts give everyone the freedom to work out at his or her own pace. Typical Open Workouts consist of: 

Heavy bags

Focus mitts to help optimize punching technique

Kicking shields and sparring equipment are also available


Belt Ranks
White, Yellow, Blue, Green, Red, Black

Club Dues
The dues for our club are $65 per semester. Please try out our club for two weeks (4 practices), then decide if you would like to stay. Attendance is not mandatory, but it is crucial if you want to improve and advance. We encourage people to work out with us for a couple of weeks before deciding. 

Come On Out!
Our club is open to anyone who is interested -- all you need is the desire to learn and improve yourself. If you are interested, please go to the Contact page and e-mail the club president with your name, email address and/or phone number.
