He Yee Dao Karate Association

The martial art we practice is Tae Kwon Do, which is Korean Karate and is purported to be the oldest of all the martial arts. The literal translation of Tae Kwon Do is "The Art of Kicking and Punching."

He Yee Dao, the name of our school, is Chinese for "The Universal Way"; universal because Tae Kwon Do is the most widespread of all the martial arts. The proper pronunciation of He Yee Dao is best explained as follows: Huh E Daho (enunciated as one word). Association was chosen over club or school since association means fellowship, companionship, or organization of persons having common interests and purposes. What better way to explain our group?

Our uniform patch is an original design depicting "The Path to Enlightenment." Note the silver path starting in the darkness of beginning, progressing through the gateway into the golden light of knowledge, and on to infinity, the goal of perfection. On the left side of the gate are the Chinese Characters for He Yee Dao, on the right is script for the same, and surrounding the whole is the English translation, "The Universal Way."

Urgent Mohawk School Update!

Students & families attending classes at the St. Regis Mohawk School, please read below:

As I'm sure by now everyone is aware, the St. Regis Mohawk School is closed due to flooding. Since we are not sure when the building will reopen, I would like to strongly encourage any and all students to attend class at Norwood-Norfolk CSD (Rt. 56 between Massena and Potsdam). The times are the same, but classes there are held Mondays and Thursdays (6pm for youth, 7pm for adults & teens). I will be there tonight for both classes.

With some luck, we could be back in our own building in time for Thursday's classes. Please keep an eye on the district website (www.srk12.org), Facebook, or other news outlets for updates.
