We once had a discussion with another taekwondo school owner about student loyalty and the relationships that we build with not only our students but their families as well. He asked us the following question: "If you asked your students to help you move, would they show up?" He then admitted that if he asked that of his students, he didn't think anyone would be willing to help. While we didn't know for sure at the time, we got our answer this last weekend.
Thanks to the dozens of students that volunteered to help us move our school, we managed to clear out 11 years of stuff and all our equipment in just one day. We in fact had so many helpers that we were turning people away. Thank you to everyone who showed up on Saturday. It means the world to us that we have helped shape a community where people look after one another and are there to lend a helping hand.
For the next 2-3 months, we will be having classes at 3910 24th St (between Sanchez and Noe) while they retrofit our school. We will be asking students for their help once more when we have to move back, and we are certain this time around that if we ask for help in moving that we will not be sitting there alone on moving day.
Just goes to show that our students are the best!!!
Thank you again.
