ATA Taekwondo

8 posts in this topic

I am a black belt in Taekwondo and have attended a couple tournaments that consist of people in the area. Region 114 is the Iowa and Minnesota area.

Anyone here in Taekwondo? Past or present

Our family is involved in the World Tae Kwon Do Federation. My hubby is a 4th degree (master), oldest daughter is a 2nd degree, and other two daughters quit after attaining their 2nd degree junior black belt. I had to quit as a blue belt due to knee problems.

While the ATA and World TKD Fed. are different governing bodies, they are similar in many ways.

All in all, it's a great sport. A great way to work out frustrations and stress. grin

I trained threw out the eighties under 8th Dan Grand Master Joel Coles’s. He had moved around his dojo in Elk River for sevral years. He now has owned a place in Otsego where he still teaches.

I made it to brown belt red stripe before I moved on. I wished I would have kept in it. It was fun. I won some medals (bronze)in Twin Cities Tourney's, but to me it was gold back then grin. One I can remember was in Roseville.

My father was the one who got me started, but hurt him self in 84 or 85 and stopped going.

I still see Joel around town and thank him for all he taught me. Very nice guy!

That is fantastic!

I am planning on going back for my second degree here pretty quick but with the economy the way it is, money is tight right now.

Hmmmm, maybe I will be able to see some of you at tournaments!

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.
    • red wings are back, sand hill cranes calling  all kinds of Robins nice
    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
