Just a friendly reminder that our Annual Spring BBQ is this Sunday at 2:00pm, and we're all grateful that JR is willing to host once again. Please let me know ASAP if you are coming or not, because I want to make sure there is enough food for everyone! If you need a ride, we will be meeting at the HUB Parking Deck (right next to White Building), otherwise please contact me if you're driving yourself and need JR's address. I hope to see everyone there!

There are only a few more weeks left in the semester, and we have some upcoming events I want everyone to be aware of. I will send out reminder emails as the dates are more concretely set with additional information, but this is just a friendly heads up:

Women's Group Clinic: Wednesday, April 13th (Tentative) in class
PAWS Centre County Community Service: April (TBA) at the shelter
Spring BBQ/Social: April (TBA) at JR's house

Please don't hesitate to email me if you are not receiving my emails via the listserv and would like to be added. Thank you and have a great day!

I apologize to those of you who showed up yesterday (03/21) intending to train as our usual room was taken over by another group again, but I wasn't made aware of this rescheduling beforehand. I have made an appointment with Club Sports to resolve this lack of communication issue so we can avoid this problem in the future. If you have never received an email from me regarding upcoming events or class cancellations, please email me at ljg5222@psu.edu so I can add you to the appropriate listserv.

Thank you and have a good day!

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.
