"I'm on my eighth year of Snow Herons Tang Soo Do and I highly encourage giving it a go. It has helped me with developing self-confidence, discipline, hand-eye coordination and more. The environment is safe as well as fun and the community is warm and welcoming; it is an amazing experience that will stay with you for years to come".

Students are requested to arrive approximately 5-10 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin.
Students are permitted up to 15 minutes of late arrival time; however, students who arrive after the 15-minutes late arrival period are not be permitted to join the class, regardless of rank or age.
Students who arrive in this late period must wait at the side of the training floor for the instructor's permission to enter the class; they will then join at the back of the student line.
Show your respect by pausing at the entrance to the Do Jang (Martial Art Training Hall) to face the flags and salute the Flags (you will be shown how in your first class). This demonstrates respect for your country, our style, and our training. We then ask you to stop as you enter the Do Jang, at the sidelines, in view of the senior class instructor and bow to show your respect. The senior class instructor will acknowledge your attendance. You should also perform this discipline upon leaving the Do Jang.
Once entering the Do Jang you should refrain from talking (even as you walk along the sidelines to the permitted areas). Talking is allowed in the rest areas outside the Do Jang, however, you should speak quietly and prepare your mind for the upcoming class.
