To all Taekwondo families and friends:
I hope that you are all doing well during what seem like uncertain times. I had planned on hosting a tournament in June so that we could all celebrate and work together one more time. Unfortunately, that isn’t in the cards for us. This past year my beautiful wife, Caryn, had some heart problems due to damage that had occurred from radiation treatment for cancer nearly 20 years ago. We really had to stop and examine what was truly important in our lives. So, we started putting together a plan to simplify and prioritize.
Our plan really came to a head in February when she began to exhibit similar symptoms to last Spring. It seems the treatment course that was used last year was failing and now she had to undergo an extremely complicated and highly risky surgery that could end in what the doctor called “catastrophic results.” Fortunately, we were blessed by God to have the most miraculous surgical results and recovery that we could possibly hope. This just solidified our original plan.
During my time involved in Taekwondo I have seen many wonderful things and endured awful events, but through it all there seemed to be a sense of family in all of it. However, I realize now that I sacrificed much of my time with my own family in order to be a part of this extended family. In order to simplify and prioritize I decided it was time for me to step down as a full-time instructor and pass that responsibility on to Master Marty Parker effective June 1, 2020. Now I will be able to devote my time to what matter most to me: God and my family.
As I stated earlier, I wanted to host one last event to celebrate and reminisce together, but that will not be able to happen now. I still hope to maintain contact with everyone. I still plan to train on my own and provide continuing education for the Black belts and Masters. I will sorely miss all the wonderful students, but I also look forward to leading a normal life. Thank you all.
Grandmaster Kevin Schutz
[03/30/20] As many of you know, we had to suspend classes through the month of March. Unfortunately, that has now been extended an additional 2 weeks and perhaps even longer. We don't have a new start up date set quite yet due to the fact that all this is quite uncertain. Please be patient and stay tuned for any further updates. Thank you.
Classes will be suspended until the 27th, per the Governors ruling. All TKD families should check their emails for more details.
Please take this time to enjoy the blessing of being able to spend more uninterrupted time with your families without the rush of everyday life. While there are so many concerns and uncertainties we are all trying to navigate through, one thing to be extremely grateful for is TIME. Time to spend together. Time to be with eachother, invest, and make precious memories you wouldn’t normally have the time to do.
We will see you in a few days 🤞🏻
CLASSES WILL GO ON AS SCHEDULED. Please check your email for an important note about HOW we will conduct classes the rest of the month.
“for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

[07/29/19] Classes start back up Thursday, August 1st at 5:00!!! We hope you all had a nice July off and we are looking forward to seeing you all!
We are so thankful for all the support that we have received in the past at our event that we have hosted in June for the past number of years. Unfortunately, we have experienced some life changing family events recently that made us decide to postpone this event in 2019. I know that many were planning on attending this event and we appreciate your friendship and loyalty, but right now our family needs come first. We are planning another event for the Fall, so please stay posted. Thanks again and have a blessed day!
A huge CONGRATULATIONS to all our students who tested last night! We are SO intensely proud of ALL of you!!!
I think this an excellent opportunity to say we are proud of who our kids ARE! Not just in what they DO. Yes. Testing is about seeing how far you’ve come in your training. And we are SO proud of your achievements! But it is what we witness OUTSIDE of testing that means so much more. We are so proud to see the kids and black belts encouraging one another on in testing. Hugging and speaking life-giving words to those who are disappointed when they find out they need to do re-breaks or do their patterns one more time, next week. Believing nothing but the BEST for one another.
It is your HEARTS that bring us the most pride. So be proud of yourselves just where you are at! Because WE think you all are amazing!
Well done everyone! 👊🏻👊🏻
[04/13/19] Words cannot even express the appreciation I have for ALL our Taekwondo family. Thank you for the lovely cards and pictures. I am blown away! I LOVE my TKD families and their kids MORE than you know. But your thoughtfulness has put you guys over the top as the BEST ever!!! Thank you!! ❤️❤️ - Miss Caryn
From GrandMaster Kevin:
I have been sitting here for the past couple of days going through one of the scariest moments of my life with my beautiful wife, Caryn, being completely overwhelmed by the the generosity, love and support from our friends, family, and church family. I truly cannot express my gratitude to all the outstanding people in our lives. It may be funny to feel that in what seemed to be our darkest hours that we could feel so abundantly blessed.
But isn't that a powerful way for God to work? Not only in our lives, but the lives of others. When we are weakest, He shows his strength. And what creates a powerful testimony to show others the goodness and the greatness of God's love? A test, of course! You can't have a testimonial without a test. So while outwardly this appeared to be a physical battle, it truly was a battle in the spirit. The enemy prowls like a lion looking to steal, kill and destroy. So why wouldn't he attack a cancer survivor on the battleground of health? Or attack her husband on facing that potential loss? All attacks from the enemy will focus on our fears. Why? Because it is really the enemy that is afraid of us! He knows better than we do what God has planned for us and he's scared that we will find out and step on his head!
God has given us power and dominion over the enemy and what was meant for evil He will turn to good. The enemy meant to derail both of us and it only made us stronger and closer to God's plan for us. I think the enemy sometimes forgets who our Father is and that NO weapons formed against us shall prosper!
Thank you again to all the prayer warriors out there that came along beside us and held us up. Remember, don't be afraid of the storm, the storm needs to be afraid of us.
[04/11/19] Classes canceled tonight, Thursday, due to our spring “blizzard” 🥴
[04/10/19] We are still having class tonight. Use your own discretion when driving tonight. Be safe.
They tell you to treat each day as if it were your last. We all hear that and think, “Hmm. That’s a sweet sentiment. Maybe I won’t yell at my kids today for throwing their shoes all over the entryway instead of putting them away”. But do we REALLY treat each day is if it were your last? Or if it were THEIR last??
What would you do? What would you say? Would the pile of laundry make a difference anymore? Would the fact that there just isn’t enough money to pay bills matter? You didn’t make it to the gym because you slept an extra hour instead and consequently have gained 5 pounds. You’re holding a grudge against your sibling because he/she didn’t answer you. Or DID answer you in that typical passive/aggressive sarcastic manner you just hate so much!
Does it all really matter? And if it doesn’t, what really does?
Let me share a few things that I think DO matter.
It matters to tell someone you love them. And more importantly, WHY. We can all say very flippantly, “I love you”. Much like telling others “Im praying for you”. But does it hold meaning?? Or was it just a cute little phrase. LOVE. Love hard. And be vocal about it. When a person is gone, those notes you left, pictures you took of special moments - loving - those will NEVER be forgotten. If today were your last day, will that person know you loved them?
Take TIME. Yep. We live in a busy world. We are always trying to work more. Have more. Pay off more. Take TIME to spend with one another. Yep. I get it. That person is super annoying. All they do is talk about the same thing over and over and over. It’s ok. But if today were your last day, does it really matter? They know they are loved because you took time to be with them. Listening. Hearing their hearts.
Make memories. If today were your last day would the people around you remember that you growled at them again because they didn’t make their bed. Or that you made rainbow pancakes with clouds. Did you buy them that cool toy they wanted so they’d quit bugging you to play with them or did you fly a kite in the backyard with them? Did you kiss your spouse passionately or just peck him on the cheek....you know. Because if I kiss him he’ll want more. And I’m just not feeling it today. If today were your last day, what memory would your spouse and kids have. KISS him (or her). HUG your kids long and hard as they walk out the door.
We never know when our lottery ticket is up and we get to win our ride to heaven. But listen to me, as a mom and wife, a woman who is looking at the frailty of life, that if today were your last day, you better make it count. We don’t get to take ANYthing with us when we go. But we DO get to take memories and love with us.
So please, make today count. 😘
[04/06/19] Belt testing scheduled for today is postponed due to a family emergency.
[03/25/19] Reminder: No District 206 school = No classes tonight. See you all tomorrow!
