#newneighbors #HubCityAxeThrowing #UptownAberdeen

We are excited to be open for business!! We offer recreational axe throwing and will be initiating leagues January 3rd, 2021. Visit our website to register!

Thank you to those that served, past and present, for your sacrifice to keep us safe. We would like to give a big Thank You to two of our students, Mr. Jerry (veteran) and Mr. Tyler (active) for your past and continued efforts. Pilsung! #VeteransDay #honorourveterans

We had a great Halloween party! Everyone had such great costumes. We hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Halloween. Remember! Parents get a candy tax! Kidding. Please remember to have your candy checked, stay in groups, and stay safe if you go out trick or treating.

#martialarts #taekwondo #strongheartaberdeen #hubcity #aberdeensd #UptownAberdeen #HappyHalloween

[10/27/20]   This Thursday, we will be allowing the kids to wear their Halloween costumes! A picture will be taken at the beginning of class, so if the costume comes with a mask they can wear it for the photo. Afterwards, we ask they remove the costume mask and put on a regular one for the class itself.

We will also be doing Bring A Friend Night that same day, so please bring along any friends! The kids class requested bringing a stuffed friend in case their real ones don't want to come and we will allow that as well so everyone has a friend with them that night.

[10/22/20]   Due to the snow fall and school cancellations, there will be no classes today. We hope everyone stays safe and warm at home, and if you have to leave please be safe! We will schedule a make up class. Please pass the word around to parents that dont see this message.

[10/17/20]   Due to technical difficulties we are unable to post new subject on google drive for students. The files we had, have been corrupted and are no unusable. Please remain patient with us as we work on getting new ones made. We thank you for your patience.

[10/12/20]   We will be having class today. Normally we would not have class when there is no school, but we will be doing a fun day today.

Great job during testing on Saturday! We hope everyone keeps up the good work and stays strong!

*due to the Coronavirus we experienced smaller classes and smaller testings*

[09/26/20]   Students and guardians,

Please remember we have our training/testing tomorrow! Please arrive 30 minutes before your time if you are testing and 15 minutes if you are only doing training.

10 and under will begin at 9 (be there before this time)

11 and over will be at 11 (be there before this time)

Parents, we do ask that you please stay outside of the gym for safety reasons. We will open both gates so you may see clearly through them or the windows.

[09/12/20]   At this time we would like to take a moment to thank all military (both active and inactive), first responders, airline personnel, and civilians affected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks for their strength, determination, bravery, and sacrifice. This is a dark day in our country's history; one that many of us will never be able to fully comprehend the magnitude of without having been there, but you were there when we needed you. You came together from all walks of life as brothers and sisters to save one another without a second thought. You put aside your differences and fought for each other in a way that makes each and every one of us proud to stand with you and for that, we are truly thankful.

To the families of those no longer with us, we are so sorry for your pain and loss. There are no words to express how deeply we as a nation feel this sorrow. We want you to know though, that we are here for you and that we love you. We will do our best every single day to honor your loved ones by standing strong together. One nation, united always.

Everyone at Strongheart Martial Arts thanks you, and you will be remembered by us always. Pilsung.

[09/07/20]   Just a reminder, there will be no class today! I hope everyone has enjoyed their three day weekend. We will see the Taekwondo students again on Thursday and Hapkido tomorrow.

Anyone in the Rapid City area looking to get fit, learn self-defense, and have fun doing it, please look into these classes! They have great Instructors and hold amazing classes. Recommend 10 out of 10!

We still have some spaces in our Fall Classes - visit our website to sign up today!

[08/14/20]   Reminder, we will be having class today at Wylie Park in the same location we have all week.

Unfortunately, we will not be having our Saturday class due to scheduling conflict. We apologize for the short notice.

[08/13/20]   We will NOT have class at the park today. Aberdeen is under a heat advisory, so we will be at the gym instead.

[08/10/20]   Just a reminder we will be at Wylie Park this week! Please remember to bring water bottles.

[08/07/20]   No Zoom classes tonight. We unfortunately have technical problems that leave us unable to do classes. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Getting good workouts in with Mr. Kyle leading the charge! Even with masks and limited cardio, we always strive to push ourselves.

If you want to try, come throw down at Uptown Aberdeen! Just come through the entrance by Tokyos!

#martialarts #taekwondo #strongheartaberdeen #hubcity #aberdeensd #uptownaberdeen @ Uptown Aberdeen

[08/05/20]   Next week from August 10th-14th, we will be meeting at Wylie Park! Please be at the large playground area between the Birdhouse and the Pavilion at your class time.

If there is rain or bad weather, we will meet back up at the gym, and we will update our page to reflect that change. If nothing is seen, but you are unsure, please don't hesistate to contact us!

Students, please remember to wear your uniforms. Masks will be OPTIONAL while are outside. While we still recommend you wear them, we will not require them when outdoors. Shoes are also recommended but not required. We will still sanitize our hands before class, in case you beat us there and are playing on park equipment, to keep everyone safe. We will maintain a safe 6 foot distance between everyone during practice. If it becomes too hot out to wear our uniform tops, we may take them off, but belts will stay on.

Update: We apologize! Hapkido starts this Friday! We realized we forgot to mention a start date.

Throwing down, in Uptown Aberdeen! We are going to be reopening our Hapkido program, with limitations. We will require masks and shoes during class, and currently there is no Zoom time slot, though that will come in the future if there is interest. But, we hope to see returning students and new students once again! #martialarts #hapkido #strongheartaberdeen #aberdeensd #hubcity #uptownaberdeen

Miss Emma is a student at Strongheart Martial Arts and is part of our Hapkido and Kumdo programs. She started at our dojang just before graduating highschool two years ago, and has since become a welcomed addition to our martial arts family. She has achieved the rank of Blue in our Hapkido program and while she is currently only a no-gup in Kumdo, that doesn’t mean she is a slouch in the way of swords. At our annual USCTU Kumdo Tournament, she placed first in the women’s division and proceeded to the semi-finals for Grand Champion!

Fun, goofy, energetic, and hard-working are just a few of the words we would use to describe her. She has always gone above and beyond when working both inside and outside of the dojang and has played a large role in demonstrations and women’s self defense.

Currently she is away strengthening her beliefs and completing Mission. All of us at Strongheart wish her a safe journey and are looking forward to when she returns so we can hear about her adventures. If you wish to leave Miss Emma a farewell and good luck, please comment below! We are sure she will enjoy seeing them when she is able to get to a computer.

Meet Miss Maryah!

Miss Maryah has been part of the Instructional Staff at Strongheart for 10 years and Head Instructor of Aberdeen for 5. She started her training under Master Naomi Even-Aberle and Miss Amanda Buck while attending Northern State University. She graduated NSU with a bachelor's degree in English. She has been Head Instructor of the NSU club and Ipswich Taekwondo, when it was open.

She is a 3rd-degree black belt in Taekwondo, a 3rd-degree black belt in Hapkido, and a 3rd gup in Kumdo. She had this to say about being a Head Instructor, "Our students amaze me each and every time I step into that Dojang. I can only plan so much in a day because they always surprise me, even after all this time. One day they could do 3000 jumping jacks for fun, and the next I'm getting history facts. It's like an adventure, and I honestly don't want it to stop". Outside the gym, Miss Maryah loves to read, write, play video games, and work on random projects. Hanging out with family and friends is also high on her fun things to do.

Follow us to learn more about how you can meet Miss Maryah in person, and so you can meet the rest of our amazing staff!
