Tuesday Classes

Hello all,
We just updated the calendar for next week and added in Tuesday classes and a few Wednesdays. Tuesdays will be in Klotche 110 at 8:40p.m. for the rest of the semester. Wednesdays will also be in Klotche 110 at 8:40p.m. Again as of right now we only have a few Wednesday classes so make sure you are checking the calender for updates and to make sure you have the right day and time. We are hoping to be getting more classes for the semester in Zelazo very soon.
Also, this Thursday is the deadline to renew your membership. So make sure you talk to an instructor this week to renew so you can train as much as possible.

Awareness Beads

I've noticed quite a few people still don't know about awareness beads, even students with them.  I think this may be due to the brevity by which I address them at testing.  Anyway, I've added a new page to the website that details them in more depth.  Let us know if you have further questions; additionally, if you need a pair of awareness beads, please speak to Mr. Taddey.  He will have to figure out what to do about them in my absence.  I have none to give him at the moment.  For years, I had thought about shifting that responsibility to one of the students.  But he will have to make that judgment call.  Maybe if you would be interested in making the beads for us, you could talk to him.  There is, of course, a process to follow, but you would be allotted a commission of $5 for each bracelet.


Class Update and Seminar

Hey all,
This coming week we will be having 3 practices. Tuesday and Wednesday in theWisconsin Room at 7 p.m. Also, Thursday in Klotche room 110 at 8:40 p.m. We would love to see everyone at class this coming week.
I have also recieved an ivitation to attend a Hopkido Seminar on October 16th and 17th. You will have an opportunity to train with Master Steve Seo who will be coming over from Korea. I will need to turn in all infromation prior to October 9th with the fee which will be $150.00 for 11 hrs of training. If you are interested in attending the seminar for one or both days please speak with me as soon as possible. This will be a great training opportunity for students of all levels.
Last but not least renewal fees and forms are due by Thursday September 30th.

Thursday Classes + Testing/Class and After Party

Hey everyone,
I have been informed that we will be having class on Thursday at Klotchie room 110, also known as the padded room. Class will be starting at 8:40. This is also posted on the new websites calender, www.risingphoenixtkd.com Also, we will be having class and testing on Friday in the Wisconsin room at 6:00, so come support your fellow students as they progress to the next ranks. This will be a very special class as it will be the last class taught by Master Olds before he leaves for Korea. I encourage all students past and present to come to class and train with him once more this year. After class we will be having a social gathering, a farewell party for Master Olds, at Mr. Olsen/Nate Winters house, 2424 N Fredrick Ave. This will begin around 8:30 and we would again love to see everyone there. This is a chance to not only say see you later to our fearless leader but also another opportunity to strenthen the family of Rising Phoenix.
I look forward to seeing everyone at class, testing, and social gathering not only this week but throughout the entire year.
Mr. Mitch Taddey

New Features Added to the Website

As you are well aware, I'm reconstructing the website.  The next few days will herald a lot of new additions.  The latest of these are the registration forms and this news blog, which I am so excited about.  Previously, we had to manually edit the page.  This was tedious and time consuming, with access limited only to myself.  The new blog will allow any officers or instructors to seamlessly update the news while logged into our gmail account.  Going back to the registration forms, I've chosen not to add the CT and DT buttons until we reopen those programs, hopefully sometime after I return from Korea.  They will remain grayed-out until that point. 

Anyway, check back frequently if you want to see all the cool new additions.  I'll try to post them as I come to resting points.  Oh, and I appologize if you visit and see a battlefield of icons.  I sort of work in a trial by error manner. ;)
