Winter Break

Please enjoy your time over the next couple weeks with your families.  There is so much going on in all of our lives all year round, and even lots to do over the holidays coming and going everywhere.  However, I hope that we all can soak in our time with those close to us.  Time will fly by that’s for sure, so let’s build some moments and connections that are valuable.

Winter Break Schedule

As a reminder there will be no classes starting tomorrow (Saturday) through Sunday January 3rd.  However, the dojang will be open for some staff projects & administration – plus there is open  mat time for anyone who is looking to get in some workouts and sweat a little.  So, for the next 2 weeks, the Mondays, Tuesdays, & Wednesdays open hours will be from Noon to 8pm, and then all closed up on the other days of the weeks.  Monday January 4th everything will be all back to normal full schedule!

TLK Afterschool Spring Renewal

I know most of you got things all set to go for spring, however, if you haven’t already please take care of renewing spring registration.  We need to confirm our spaces, and of course want to ensure that all existing people keep their spaces in the program as we are still close to our full capacity #s.  This can be taken care of with Bryce, and if you need to email with him, just use bryce@hwarangdomn.com as a contact point or swing into the dojang during hours mentioned above.

Thank you all once again for a wonderful year!  I feel very fortunate that we have such a great community of people participating in Hwa Rang Do, and it is exciting seeing so much vibrant strength and energy from all of you.

Enjoy the break from the outside world, and soak in the internal!  Balance back and forth for peace and harmony.

With love and respect,

Hwarang!

DAY OF CALMING

The Dojang will be open tomorrow morning for all who wish to join as a group for a moment of silence, meditation, and prayer for global peace & harmony. If you are unable to attend here, we hope that you will be able to take a moment of your own – for 11 minutes, on the 11th minute, on the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month.

This moment, will continue on as an annual HwaRangDo holiday, as we recognize the anniversary of the strategic summit that developed our vision statement, as well as to shine some light and peace into our chaotic and unstable times. As we calm ourselves, many possibilities open!

Register For Afterschool Program NOW!!!

Summer’s end is fast approaching, so that means school time is right here!  This also means that if you are looking at afterschool time options for the kids, you better hurry if you want to get in on the amazing action offered here with us!!!  That’s right, not only do we do incredible martial art training everyday, but we also make the most of the afterschool time frame with insightful and productive lessons.  While MPLS kids and so many other places only play games, we have fun with training + leadership development, life lessons, community service, and some crafts & science based activities.  The kids can also get in some homework time too, plus a decent mix of freetime, so the afternoon is filled with quality here at our facility.

We have also restructured our facility over the summer to allow for additional enrollments (reached capacity last year), so if you want to catch one of the last remaining spots, please make sure to come on in for a tour ASAP and get registered!  Even though we have added space & staff, the additional spaces will get filled up and our wait list will return again.

Finally Officially Approved By the IRS! TLK = 501(c)3

Dear Dojang Families,

As announced at tournament this weekend, the Tomorrow’s Leading Knights program is now an Officially Approved 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization!!!  It has taken over 2 years of work to get to this point, and very exciting to finally be official and have the letter in hand!  We have been operating as a non-profit the past 2 years, however, have had the “pending” status hang over us which has been very limiting.  However, with that out of the way, it is time to roll full steam ahead!

I have already been connecting with folks to get some of our initiatives moving.  Along with being able to evolve our operations and presence here with our home location, we do have some significant plans for the future.  There is now information posted online that shares our story and mission.  When you have a chance please jump on over to the following link for a detailed scoop on the plans:  http://tlkafterschool.com/tlk/mission/non-profit-agenda/

As things develop with our Academy please stay tuned for news and materials related to the exciting impact that’s in store.  From the first seed that was planted here 14 years ago with just a handful of people training hard in Hwa Rang Do with me, we are now ready to reach out as a significant organization!  The horizon is bright, and I look forward to the continued journey together.

Also wanted to drop in a special Thank You to Stephanie Alexander.  As things have expanded here at our school, she has really been dedicated to our vision and worked tirelessly to move things forward, and administer much of the non-profit loops.  When you run into her, I hope you can share some appreciation ^^

Give to the Max!

While we didn’t have our official status to be included in Minnesota’s great online GIVE TO THE MAX DAY (yes today Nov 13), we do have online processing available for anyone who wants to give or share with others!  We are in the razoo non-profit platform right here:  http://www.razoo.com/story/Tlk

Please remember, all contributions made to TLK whether online or dropped of in check format are FULLY TAX-DEDUCTIBLE!  Receipts will be provided once processed.  Thank you very much for your consideration during the end of the year push.  We look forward to making a significant impact around the region, but know it will only happen with support and partnerships from you and the community!

Best Always!
