Since 1976

COVID is behind us (almost) and we resumed the martial arts weapons classes at the Cooper Center in Dallas. Mr. Yates, Mr. Proctor, Mr. Barnett, and Ms. LaMarche taught both beginning and advanced curriculum. If you missed the class in June we'll let you make it up for a couple months with private lessons. We meet on the second Saturday of the month from 4 to 6 pm. The cost per class is the same as it has been for 30 years now, just $10. You have to purchase your own weapons however (contact Mrs. Barnett).

NEW EDITION OF THE FORMS BOOK—Mr. Yates's 2018 version of The Complete Book of Tae Kwon Do Forms contains all the patterns the AKATO uses in its American Tae Kwon Do curriculum (including the three Tang Soo Do forms) as well as history of the art in the United States, this is another must-have textbook for the serious student. On the inside back cover you will find a code to download and unlock the "Basic" version of the smartphone APP which includes the first five forms and applications of some of the movements. You can purchase and download the app with the entire forms curriculum at the Apple or Android stores.

MORE BOOKS—Speaking of books, Mr. Yates's other new books, Martial Arts ABCs, and Sensei Sayings are available exclusively on Amazon.
