Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts Participates in National Girls and Women in Sports Day Events at UNC Asheville
Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts, Asheville, NC, is thrilled to have done a demonstration and class in support of the local events associated with National Girls and Women in Sports Day!
Created as a means of celebrating the achievements of women and girls in athletics, as well as provide exposure to different types of physical activity, National Girls and Women in Sports Day is celebrated during the first week of February every year. This year’s event was coordinated by the Asheville Parks and Recreation department, and was held at UNC Asheville.
Asheville Sun Soo performed an exciting demonstration, and held a short class that was open to all participants in the events of the day. Many of our female practitioners participated, and event attendees were treated to an inspirational example of what is possible with a martial arts practice!
As a school, Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts is intentional about supporting healthy community events. We are particularly excited about supporting women and girls being involved in sports of all types. Our students had a great deal of fun being a part of this community event, and we look forward to participating in other such events in the future!

On Saturday, December 2nd Aliso Hills Taekwon-do, Laguna Hills, CA, had their annual holiday party. It was a potluck event with the students putting on an awesome talent show!
Master Paul D'Ambrosio, Owner and Chief Instructor at Aliso Hills Taekwon-do as well as TKDI's Director of Western US said, "We have some very talented people at the school! It’s always great to get together outside of class to celebrate with each other!"
As part of their dance/movement series, the Physical Education teachers at Lomond Elementary School in Shaker Heights, OH invited Master Marr’s Taekwon-do (MMTKD) to teach introductory classes to all the third and fourth graders.
MMTKD owners Master James Marr, TKDI General Secretary, and Master Elaine Bayless, and Blue Belt student Devonte Green, used the 45 minute classes to explain what Taekwon-do is, where it originated, and basic Korean phrases. The children got to try out several blocks, punches, and kicks, first in place, following the instructors, and then moving across the floor with the instructors holding pads.
Encouraging the students to put some oomph behind their ke-ups, Master Marr reminded them, “Every other adult in your life will tell you to be quieter. I want you to be louder!” Master Marr and Master Bayless worked on footwork and balance, as well as reinforcing left and right, while keeping the children moving and engaged. At the end of each class, a show of hands indicated that every one of the students was eager to learn more.
On Thanksgiving morning Aliso Hills Taekwon-do, in Laguna Hills, CA, had a special kickboxing class taught by Master Jessica Sabetian! Approximately 20 people came to kick and punch in a high-energy exciting work out before feasting on their Thanksgiving meal!
I was at Master Yang's Test yesterday (Yang Taekwondo, New York, NY) and I believe it's best that I write a comment.
Master Yang has done an awesome job as a Master Instructor of TKD and a Dojang owner here in NYC. Students were from all different styles yet they were doing very well and having tremendous fun. I was and am truly impressed!
Master Yang, keep up your awesome job and on behalf of the Taekwon-do International, I wish you great success!
