Tae Kwon Do Lesson

Iris and a friend went to Tae Kwon Do class with Anton Kasabov at the Hermosa Beach Community Center (HBCC) this afternoon. (His official website does not have information about his classes so I am posting info about the classes Iris takes below.)

She had trouble with a new kick so she stayed after class to work on it. That's one good reason to schlepp her to HBCC. There are simply too many kids at the school-based lessons for her to get individual attention when she needs it. Although most of the other students pay by the session, our schedule is too erratic for that. He allows us to pay a la carte for each lesson.


Anton reminded everyone that he will be on vacation for 3 weeks. Today's was the last Tuesday class until September 5. There will be one more Monday class next week, August 7. The normal HBCC class schedule resumes after Labor Day.

  • beginners at 4pm Mondays
  • "Dragon Club" or intermediates at 5pm Mondays and Tuesdays

  • Anton had trouble explaining a concept to the kids today; he is not a native english speaker. Iris got it immediately and piped up that it was like the words to that song. He asked what song. She said, "never take the path of least resistance." He said that will be the Dragon Club motto.

      I couldn't find the before/after pictures of Iris' haircut. But I love the jumping board-kick.
