Have a great month. We hope no one got too badly affected by the recent storms, and that everyone stayed safe. Have a great Easter, and holidays if you have them!
What a huge 3 to 4 weeks it has been. Hapkido classes are going well and happy to receive any feedback. The biggest thing that is happening is we have moved to a new system called Zenplanner. Previously I was running 4 different systems to maintain Hapkido. I have been able to remove all those systems and cut it down to 1 system that does everything.
You should all have seen a login email now, and if not please feel free to login here.
I appreciate everyone’s patience and here is some of the things you can do with the system:
1. Check Attendance Online
2. Look at Calendars and grading information
3. Pay for Retail Merchandise and gradings etc
4. Pay your monthly investment online or out of bank accounts automatically.
Soon I will be putting up videos and the like to view so all good.
Other then that we have a hit and miss timetable with all the public holidays in April and beginning of May so please try and keep on top of classes and we can go from there.
Train hard and see you on the mats soon.
Congratulations to Those Who Graded Last Month!

Grandmaster Booth Visit
October 1-9th, 2017
ITS- Sun Bae, Hell week and Weekend of Wisdom
Get connected! Not all martial arts schools are lucky enough to have an international family, so get involved. Grandmaster Booth has begun the 2017 world tour- follow his trip report here. Follow the IHA official page and the IHA members discussion page. If you are travelling interstate or overseas, chances are you’ll pass an IHA school or an affiliated school- make sure you ask, and visit another school if you can.
Never a ‘failure’- always a lesson.
