COVID-19 classes

While we are in lockdown, we are posting online classes here. This page also includes a bunch of great activity sheets for children, and theory posters for everyone (see below the classes).

Zoom classes during lockdown

Zoom classes have been great! Come along! Class details:

  • Children yellow belt and below,
  • Teens and adults (all grades), and children green stripe and above,
  • Kubz students,

Try to clear a space in your house or in your backyard, and ensure you can see your computer monitor (or TV screen, if you post it). Wear your dobok, and bring a drink bottle of water, your syllabus handbook, training notebook and pen.

Recorded virtual classes

We post videos of our Zoom classes in our online dojang after each class (www.glendowie.com/dojang). This page contains a summary of classes so they are easy to find.

If you miss a class, or you'd like to do some extra training, do one of these classes!

Taekwon-Do Talk and back issues

Keep your Taekwon-Do brain active with Taekwon-Do Talk online magazine (and there are a load of PDF back issues here, too).

Continue training regularly

The internet says two types of people will come out of lockdown:

  • Those who put on weight, and
  • Those who maintain or lose weight!

Come along to our Zoom classes! (Children are welcome to try the adult class, too. They may just find it a bit more difficult.) Children, ask a parent to help you.

Please email feedback about these classes to Master Banicevich.
