WE ARE...

By Rob Simpson on September 3rd

WE ARE... Activated for the 14-15 semester! See you tonight!

Practice Times!

By Rob Simpson on August 23rd

Practices times are set as well!

Monday and Wednesday: 6:30-8:30
Sun: 5-7
Sat: 5:30-7:30

This first Monday you can stop by to turn in forms and get the ball rolling.

First, we need at least 10 Participation Agreements submitted to us so that we can add them to our roster. 
Next, we need at least 2 safety officers on file and 1 must be present at all
practices. If you still have a valid cert, all you need to do is fill out the
safety officer acceptance form. If not, like myself, we'll have to attend a
CPR/AED class. These are hosted by Penn State Aquatics

http://www.athletics.psu.edu/rec/nat/FirstAidCPRAEDTraining.asp

and you can find a date that works.

Finally, the Involvement Fair is the first 2 days of the semester and we need people to work the table, so if you are free between classes come by and help hand out flyers and talk to others to recruit more members.

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 start in a separate class taught by their own instructor for their first semester. This beginners class emphasizes stretching, self-defense, and techniques necessary for 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 class times from 6-8pm in 106 White Building. Saturdays 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 crucial if you want to improve and advance. We encourage people to work out with us for a couple of weeks before we require payment of dues.

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.
