Due to the size of the Young Gladiators class, we've decided to add an extra session for White Belts only (9th and 10th Gups) See the schedule below. The shortened 30 minute session will enable us to provide a more beginner-friendly lesson plan and attention. Students who are 9th gup (White Belt with Black Stripe) who earn the first 2 progress stripes will be permitted to join the full hour class. Added schedule is as follows:
Monday and Wednesday 6:00pm to 6:30
Tuesday and Thursday 4:30pm to 5:00
Regular Young Gladiators schedule for Orange to Brown belts will still be held at the normal time.
"NO BOHK" WEEK:
As you know, DOBOHK means Martial Arts Uniform. In a clever (at least I think so) play on words, we are having a week of classes where everyone will be required to wear regular clothes to class... hence the "no bohk" From Monday 11/7 to Saturday 11/12 students will NOT wear their dobohk to class. (ALL CLASSES) Comfortable workout clothes is fine, or even jeans... choice is yours.

BUNHAE SEMINAR 11/19 10:00am - 2:00pm
Bunhae in forms practice means to Breakdown, Dissect and Analyze. More common in the Martial Arts community is the term Bunkai, which is Japanese in language, but means basically the same thing.
The practice of Bunhae is to extract meaning from the movements in the various forms. Without the practice of Bunhae, Forms are nothing more than a series of techniques strung together for the purpose of exercise or as a type of moving mediation. We here at RMAI would like more out of our forms practice, especially because our curriculum places such a big emphasis on learning and performing them with a certain level of proficiency.
That being said, I’d like to invite you to our next Bunhae Seminar on Saturday, November 19th 10am – 2pm This is the first in a new series which we are calling “Bunhae Journeys” (for followers of our YouTube series click here: ). If you attended last year’s Bunhae seminar, this seminar is a continuation, and we hope to build upon the skills covered last time. If you enjoyed last year’s event, I highly recommend you attend this one! Price for RMAI members is only $50, for all others $99. This seminar will be open to other martial artists from other schools, so book you spot ASAP. Must be at least 12 yrs old, OR a Red Belt to attend.
