BLACK BELTS!

Kim’s Academy Black Belt Association (KABBA) relies on membership dues to support our mission, and we need your help to continue to promote Tae Kwon Do and Kim’s Academy. By paying annual dues, you can provide a foundation for the continued education of Kim’s Academy students.

KABBA was formed to support Kim’s Academy of Tae Kwon Do by educating members and Kim’s Academy students in the skills of Tae Kwon Do and to promote Tae Kwon Do. Kim’s Academy students benefit from the support of KABBA as we provide financial and logistical support for belt tests, picnics, Christmas banquet, tournaments, and special events throughout the year.

All Kim’s Academy Black Belts are eligible to become members of KABBA. KABBA members are invited to attend special black belt-only training events throughout the year. As a member, you will also be able to take an active role in directing the future of Kim’s Academy by voting on KABBA initiatives and officer elections.

More information about KABBA can be found at http://kimsacademy.com/kabba/.

Website Redesign!

After several months of work, we are proud to introduce a redesign of the Kim’s Academy website!  Improvements include:

  • Completely replacing the old website (which was static HTML-based) with a solution that uses WordPress as the underlying foundation.  For those non-technical, this is Good Thing and should allow us to make future updates with less effort in the future.
  • Utilizing a Responsive template.  This means the website will automatically adjust the content you see to fit the laptop, tablet, or smartphone device you are viewing it on.
  • Improvements to each Kim’s Academy location page
    • A Google Map view.
    • Clearer presentation of schedules.
  • An experimental “Schedule Finder” feature.  With this feature you can look at a summary view of schedules from all Kim’s Academy locations and filter on specific class types, days, times, or locations.  For example, let’s say you’re interested in attending a Kim’s Academy class but only have Tuesday’s and Thursday’s opened.  With the Schedule Finder you can filter on these two days and see what class locations and times fit your request!
  • News and Announcements posted to the website will provide Google Map views and event information you can add to your calendars with one simple click.
  • A Search feature (look for the magnifying glass icon to the right of the main menu bar), allowing you to quickly find content on the website.
  • An easier way for us to add social links to popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and SnapChat.  Kim’s Academy Instructors – if you have any social links you’d like to add to your location please let us know!

There are still a few minor “fit and finish” items to complete, but overall we think you’ll enjoy the experience!  If you have any feedback or comments, feel free to send them to webmaster@kimsacademy.com.
