OMAC Response to COVID-19

OMAC Family:

On March 15, 2020, the Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine, took the extraordinary step to close all bars and restaurants, restricting them to delivery and take out only. He came to this decision after people all over the state sent him photos and stories of crowded bars Saturday night despite the warnings of social distancing and the governor’s edict limiting crowds to no larger than 100 people.

Governor DeWine made this decision “Based upon all of this and based upon the fact of where we are at this point, in this pandemic — we are literally at a crucial, crucial, crucial stage”. Social Distancing is the best practice aside from frequent hand washing, for limiting the spread of Covid 19, and all Ohioans are being asked to do their part to reduce the need for our health services.

In response to this new development, and in the interest of keeping everyone safe and healthy, Supreme Grandmaster Choi has made the extremely difficult decision to cancel all classes for at least two weeks beginning Monday March 16th, 2020. This will affect all branches. Your contract will be extended for the length of this closure. This is being done with the health of the families of our students as the priority in this time of state and national crisis. You are all encouraged to practice at home. We are working to provide links for you to access your requirements online. Thank you; and keep healthy and happy. "Bek Gel Bulgool - Indomitable Spirit"

  • OMAC Main Branch Student of the Month, February: Kat Bubeleva

    Kat Bubaleva is a 17 year old student at OMAC. Kat shows true dedication to her Taekwondo traininh. Her only way to get to class is either by riding her bike or by walking. Kat has never missed a class based on weather; even during the huge snowfalls last month, Kat still came to class. One day, she was the only student, because classes had actually been canceled due to snow, and she had not received the message!

    Congratulations to Kat as the February student of the month.

  • OMAC Main Branch Student of the Month, October: Sara Applegate

    Sara Applegate is a younger beginner student, and she tries to take just about every class some times even 2 classes in a day. She never backs down from a challenge and keeps up with all my senior belts in class. Always has a excellent, positive attitude and keeps her head up even during the toughest training classes. She is also in band and participates in many extracurricular activities. She is one of my younger students, but is very bright and works hard as well.

  • OMAC Main Branch September Student of the Month: Brittney Norwood

    Brittany Norwood is a beginner student (only a few months) but has already tested for her first belt. Her father recently signed up after watching her in some classes and seeing her excitement and enthusiasm. Brittany participates in every class possible and has a bright and positive attitude. She works hard in class and never fails to smile. She works to the point of exhaustion and always comes back to the next class with a smile and energy to work harder. She also has lots of natural ability and the drive to be a champion.

  • OMAC Main Branch August Student of the Month: Amy Wright

    At only 7 years old, Amy has shown that she is an exceptional student by attaining her black belt. Within the last month or so, she really focused hard on polishing her skills to make sure they were black belt quality, went through the incredibly intense fasting and meditation cycle, and performed very well during her test. She serves as a role model for everything from the Little Tigers, which she helps teach on Fridays, to the most senior students, by always being polite and respectful and helping out.

    Congratulations, August Student of the Month, Amy Wright!
