Great job at the 2014 Spring Dan test! Jon, Phoebe, and Christy tested for their Cho Dan. They sure made us proud.
Great belt test on Thursday 03/06/14! Go see some pictures on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/buckeyetsd).
IMPORTANT UPDATE (3/9/14): Class time is now back to 6-8 PM Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday.
Starting this week (11/10/13), our Sunday practice will shift forward to 5-7 PM. On selected weeks, there will also be an optional weapon practice afterward (7-8 PM). Come learn some knife drills!
Thank you everyone for coming to our Martial Arts Demo Night at the RPAC. We had a blast! Hope you did, too. Want more Tang Soo Do action? Come try a few classes for FREE (see Class Schedule). We'll see you soon!
Buckeyes are arriving and returning to campus in the next few weeks. We have a few great opportunities for you to try out Tang Soo Do with us.

The WTSDA 2012 World Championship will take place July 20-22nd, 2012, in Greensboro, NC. This event brings in competitors from all around the world, giving participants a sense of what it means to be part of a true world organization.
If you are interested in attending, see your instructor.
Paperwork is available on WTSDA website.
Bill is spearheading the Demo Team and creation of a kick-butt zombie-themed demo to present at the Region 22 Championship this February. It's going to be amazing, but only if YOU make it amazing with your great ideas.
So if you're going to the Regional Championship (or just have ideas), please visit the Poison Nut Demo Team forum page. There's a link at the bottom of the list on the left of the site. Register and offer/give opinions about ideas!
Also, Demo Practice with be on Saturdays at 2 pm. Please attend if you can!
The Western PA Gup clinic is coming up !
It will take place on July 23rd, in the Pittsburgh area. It will be very similar to other clinics you've been to. That means loads of fun. It has been done outside in the past, although it's not sure it will be this time...
The cost will be $35 per person, and that includes a picnic on Saturday evening. The club will pay for part of the travel/hotel costs, as usual, but expect to participate, as well as pay for your food.
The exact plan still has to be determined, but in the past, we have driven on Friday evening, spent a night at a hotel, and driven back on Saturday evening after the picnic. Or stayed another night there and got some extra training from one of the many skilled instructors in the Pittsburgh area...
If you are interested in going, fill in the attached application and either mail it or email it (details within the application) before July 9th. Make sure you also let Mr Holtman know!
Since we are nearing the time our new officers will take their positions, here is a reminder of who they are:
President: Nick Denton
Treasurer: Pheobe Gordon
Secretary: Kate Meizlich
Vice-President: Bethany Keyser
Safety: Bill Anderson
Marketing: Kea Zertuche
New officers will take the place of the current ones at the beginning of Summer quarter. We will have training by then, and most of the current officers will be around a while longer if anyone has questions.
Make sure we all assist them in anything they need, to keep the tradition of BTSD being one of the most active and helpful martial arts clubs on campus!
