Periodically throughout the year there are excursions to Gilboa, NY in the beautiful Catskill Mountains. WMA Karate has two class trips a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. Our parent organization, the WMAA has several additional trips including a week-long intensive trip in August and Black Belt weekends in the summer and winter. There is something for everyone in the week-long summer event: practicing Tae Kwon Do in the woods every day, an acoustic and electric music concert, a trip to the high peaks of the Adirondack mountains for a day hike, the Minekill run, swimming, boating, hiking, campfires, special training classes to work on form technique, self defense, conditioning, the special practice and Black Belt Test, and seminars.
