Pattern Seminar by Mr. LeGrow and Ms. Maduk 032

Mr. LeGrow and Ms. Maduk’s Coloured Belt Seminar 2012

Yesterday, Mr. LeGrow and I gave a 5 hour pattern seminar to cover all the color belt patterns. We wanted to share our passion for patterns and give students and opportunity to review and improve their patterns in more detail. It’s good to have two instructors since we both have different personalities and wanted different things emphasized.  This way we can […]


It Takes Courage – This is Just the Beginning

Unique TKD Seminar with Master Lajeunesse

Master Lajeunesse […]
