Dear Tang Soo Do Mi Guk Kwan Members:
I hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits. It is my pleasure to invite you to our annual “Weekend with the Masters” training camp, which will be held on September 22, 2012. This year our hosts are SBN Lear, SBN Arbuckle and SBN McCalaster , owners of the Cornerstone School of Karate and WHAK of Willimantic. They have procured Montville High School, 800 Old Colchester Road, Oakdale, CT 06370 for our training.
Our “Weekend with the Masters” training camp is a fantastic opportunity for our participants to train with the senior masters of Tang Soo Do Mi Guk Kwan and to spend some quality time with like-minded Tang Soo Do practitioners who are motivated to work hard in developing their understanding of the Tang Soo Do art form. All Classes will be taught by KJN Charles Ferraro, 8th dan; SBN Richard Kopf, 7th dan; SBN Howard Dugan, 7th dan; SBN Joe DeVita, 7th dan), as well as, other senior Tang Soo Do Mi Guk Kwan masters. White and orange belts will want to bring a bong (staff) if they have one. Red belts will want to bring a mokum (wooden sword if they have one). There will be classes for Kodanja members all day long. It would be appreciated if dans would bring the appropriate weapons with them to the Weekend with the Masters training camp.
Classes will begin at 9:00 am and will end at 4:00. We will be providing lunch. Enclosed you will find an application and a itinerary for the day. Please have each student fill out an application and mail it back to our headquarters with the appropriate fee. If you need additional applications please feel free to print as many as you need. Let’s make this the best attended “Weekend with the Masters” ever. Why not?
