Each student and family should make their own decision on attending classes at branch schools which remain open. For those choosing to continue to attend classes, please follow these guidelines.

  1. Do not attend class if you exhibit any symptoms or have travelled to a known high-risk area in the last 14 days.
  2. Wash or sanitize your hands before and after class, and at any class breaks.
  3. Do not shake hands. Instead, bow to other students/instructors.
  4. Cover your mouth if you cough, using your elbow if possible. Leave class to wash your hands if you need to cover your mouth with your hand.
  5. Wash your dobak or workout clothes after each class.

We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you in class as soon as we can.

April Belt Test Update (04/17/20 and 04/18/20)

The belt test scheduled for April has been cancelled.  As of now, the June belt test will remain as scheduled.

Students who pre-tested for a black belt in February, your pre-test will serve as your test.  We will review your papers and test applications and award belts.  However, the belt ceremony is on hold at this time.  We will let you know when it is scheduled.

If you have any questions, contact your instructor or email kabba.board@gmail.com.
