Hello everyone! September is just around the corner, students from Chang’s Taekwondo Martial Arts in South Surrey, Cloverdale, Tsawwassen and Aldergrove will be returning to school in just over a week! We have some ideas on how you can return to school like a confident Martial Artist.
1. Make sure you are punctual.
 As a Martial Artist, it is important to be early/on time for school, team practices, appointments, Taekwondo, etc. Have you ever been late for something, and then feel embarrassed or get called out because of it? Let’s be on time! This will not only make you feel good, it will let other people look to you and depend on you! Plus you’ll never miss a thing!
2. Make sure you shower, brush your teeth, get a haircut, trim your finger/toe nails and wear clean clothes!
 There are few things more universally bad than a smelly friend! We want everyone to be not only healthy, but feel good about themselves as well. Not only does it feel better, but you will find it is easier to make friends if they can talk to you without you smelling like a troll!
3. Do your homework and Reading on time!
 Nothing is enjoyable if you don’t understand, or if you feel like you are behind or you missed something. If we want to be able to enjoy everyday of school from September to June, then we have to definitely do our homework right away. This will let us wake up without dread, and go to school without a weight on our shoulders. Not only will your grades improve, but you will smile more!
4. Make sure you PICK your friends wisely.
 Ever heard of the saying: “You are what you eat?” The same principle applies to your friend group. You become who you hang out with. So if you are hanging out with people who stay up late, or don’t do their homework, or associate with negative things.. then odds are that you will try those things to fit in with that friend group. We will be much happier and life will be easier if we choose friends whose principles and morals fit with us. We are Martial Artists, so we are confident, polite, courteous, respectful and happy. Find friends who are the same and you will be all the better for it!

 We hope, as your Instructors and a positive role model that our students have the best academic year ever for 2017-2018. If you are struggling with anything, please come talk to your Instructors. We’ve all been through it, and we are more than happy to share our wisdom with the next generation!
**If you should want some extra stars:
1. Show your Instructor your new School Gear.
2. Tell your Instructor how you plan to succeed this year in school!

Hello everyone! All Chang’s Taekwondo Martial Arts Instructors from South Surrey, Cloverdale, Tsawwassen and Aldergrove are getting excited for the back to school season. Why? Because this is the best time for you, our students to invite your friends to come try Taekwondo!
 September is a time of new beginnings, whether we are talking school, clubs, teams and extra curricular activities! Parents are going to be on the lookout for new programs or activities for your friends to try.. So why not try Taekwondo?
 Taekwondo (as you know) has many benefits:
Flexibility (Both in Mind and Body)
And the list goes on!
 Not only would it be more interesting for you to have your friends involved in the same Taekwondo school as you, but it would help keep you and your friend motivated. Imagine theres a night you are finding it hard to get off the couch to come to Taekwondo.. Your friend would definitely drag your lazy self to the school, and you would both be better for it!
 We have found, through years of teaching and observing our students that it is easier to stay motivated and achieve Blackbelt and beyond if you have a friend training with you.
 We have a buddy day, a movie night, and a picnic all planned for September.. So there is no excuse to not invite your friend!

What is Summer Camp?

Summer camp is a 5 day program designed to improve a student’s techniques, and to help them earn any stripes on their belt they may be missing. Summer Camp will be the same as training for a whole month, so we will be awarding an extra black stripe to those who attend!

Where do we go during Summer Camp?

Though each school’s events may vary.. During our Summer Camp we like to enjoy



Lazer Tag

Water Gun Fights

Fun at the Park

& Much more!

Summer Camp White Rock

Students should make sure to bring:

Their uniform

A Change of clothes

A Lunch

Our camps are an amazing time to remember, many friends have been made during camps… and students who have moved on to Blackbelt and beyond remember their time in our summer camps and encourage others to join. Sign up today!
