Test Candidates, please RSVP and tell us if you will be testing indoors or outside
Test candidates, whether indoors or outside, will need to check in and have a temperature check just like we do for all in-person classes. People who are feeling unwell must stay at home.
Mighty Lions testing indoors are allowed one guest spectator, assuming space limitations allow. All test candidates and spectators indoors must wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose, and will need to check in and have a temperature check. People who are feeling unwell must stay at home.
Spectators for Juniors testing indoors will be limited by the number of candidates. If we reach our maximum COVID capacity indoors we will have to ask spectators to wait outside or the candidate may choose to test outside.
All students testing outdoors may have guests but guests must be masked and keep 6' social distancing from people outside their household.
If there is a stay-at-home order we will obviously suspend the test until a better date and test fees will be credited for a future test.

As usual for our outdoors classes students should arrive prepared for class with water and a face covering over their nose and mouth. Please be sure to check in on arrival, we will take attendance and, following state guidelines, we will do a quick COVID-19 temperature and symptoms check.
No signup is required for students with a current membership.
We wish our Jewish friends an easy fast and a good holiday.
The new class schedule has been going very well! Starting last week, right after Labor Day, we added more options for classes in the park, in the taekwon-do school, and we still have the virtual classes!
Outdoor classes are held at Glenfield Park on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Students check-in on arrival with a symptom and temperature check, everyone wears masks and brings their own water.
Indoors at the Taekwon-do school classes are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. For these classes we also have a check-in, wear masks, and bring water but because of Department of Health regulations to limit class size you register to reserve your spot in the class.
Virtual classes are available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and we upload class videoes to our YouTube channel.
Proudly serving Montclair, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, Nutley, Little Falls, Verona, East Orange, West Orange, South Orange, Caldwell, West Caldwell, North Caldwell, Cedar Grove and many more!
