Children who are only here for watching the test must stay off the mats and remain silent during testing as to avoid possible distraction to testing groups.
ALL SPECTATORS MUST turn off ALL cell phone or device sounds/noise.

ATTENTION! - SCHEDULE CHANGE TODAY:
As we had a guest instructor visit at our Gup Testing on Friday, TONIGHT Master Lindsay will be traveling to one of our other C. S. Kim Karate locations to be THEIR GUEST JUDGE! This is always very exciting to have our instructor be honored as a visitor and judge for International Tang Soo Do Federation sanctioned events.
This means that as wonderful as it was to have International Tang Soo Do Federation Technical Advisory Committee Member, Master Venturino on Friday, he had to leave HIS school and his students to be here for US! We are always grateful to have these wonderful people come to officiate our exams and give their experience and knowledge to our students. As we respect him for his service to us, please respect Master Lindsays absence this evening for classes.
