Corona Virus

Pil-Sung, It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the closure of the main school until March 31st. I am doing so due to the proclamation of our governor. I understand why it has come to this and I would never want anyone to fall ill from coming to one of our classes. Or pass the virus to someone in their family or friends.

Please practice at home. I will be working at posting YouTube videos of forms and one steps. I still believe that regular exercise will lower stress and boast your immune system.
The sun is shining, and it will rise again tomorrow.
I will post more information on Facebook.
Today and every day, I hope you are well and happy and have love in your life.
Mr. Bob Sledge
