The Kick-A-Thon was attended by 11brave instructors
and students who were up for the challenge this year. The participants raised over $1,400 to benefit the Delaware Special
Olympics thru the Polar Bear Plunge. Each of the participants completed the 2009 kicks (plus 1 extra for next year), for a
combined total of 22,110 kicks in less than 2 hours! The kicks varied from snap,
rising, side, turning and back kicks with the final extra kick being a jump snap kick. A BIG THANK YOU to all the participants
and everyone who helped support this event!
UPDATE: Both Mr. Hewes’ and Mr. Bogia successfully
plunged on Sunday, Feb. 1st. (Pictures to follow in the future :-)
Valentine's Kid's Night
The February Kid’s Night will be Friday, Feb. 13th. Kid’s Night is for all current students who wish to attend. The drop off time
is between 6-6:30 pm and TKD class beginning at
6:30. After the TKD class we will have some TKD games and other activities/games. Healthy
snacks will be provided. The cost is $10 for the first student and $5 for each additional. Students are encouraged to bring
a change of clothes. Final pick up time is 10 pm.
We suggest that this would be a great night for parent’s to get
out and celebrate Valentine’s Day...ALONE! (wink, wink ;-)
that time again, report cards are being sent home for the second marking period in most schools. Please make sure to bring
in a copy of your student’s report cards so the instructors can check up on everyone’s academics.
policy at FDTKD is that all students are required to maintain a “C” average in order to attend classes.
We at FDTKD
believe that it is very important to maintain good grades so students need to remember that school comes first and that martial
arts classes of any type are a privilege.
