It's so hard to believe that it has been a year now since we lost our dear friend, Master Noel Maher. We all have such great memories of the times that we shared. His legacy lives on through his students. The knowledge and friendship that he shared with us will never be forgotten.
Dear Students and Parents.
I hope this message finds you all well. While we have been busy putting together material to keep you all busy and maintain progress we have been wondering how you are doing. We would like you to join us for a brief call on Tuesday evening to discuss how you feel about the material and to find out on if there is interest in getting together for some virtual online classes. I hope to chat around 7.00 pm . We can’t wait to see or hear from you. I encourage you to chat with each other while we are online. Sing or tell a joke if you feel up to it .
Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 365 891 542
We are honored to be invited to join Grandmaster Kim for his online classes from the Boston HQ. This is a great opportunity in these difficult times.
Anyone who is interested can contact Master Mc Sweeney directly for the details. email@example.com
For the past week Master Mc Sweeney and the instructors have been working hard to put together an online learning and communication platform. The goal is to continue passing on knowledge to the students and to stay connected as a group.
We’ve decided to use Google Classroom as many of you will already be familiar from school. The Google Classroom has already been populated with plenty of videos. We have, patterns, lessons, memories and we will be adding content regularly over the coming weeks.
The site is intended to be social as well as educational. We hope that you will help your kids to share their progress by posting videos or photos to the group. They can be videos of Taekwondo (patterns, one-step etc) but they can also by fun videos like music, songs, jokes etc.
Master Mc Sweeney will also be running some fun competitions on the site with some great prizes. Also, all those who engage with the material and practice from home will have the opportunity to undergo a grading assessment straight away when we are back up and running.
We look forward to catching up with you all online!! To gain access please forward your email address and student’s name and grade to Master Mc Sweeney directly.
