Hey, friends, looks as if we experienced a little FB hack. No, we aren't promoting Gerry Brooks and, while it might be fun, we are also not offering a drag class. lol. Black Tiger classes are still in limbo, we have no dojang location at this time. Hang in there, stay safe.


Black Tiger training is on hold for the foreseeable future due to in-person safety concerns from the pandemic and the need for a new training location. Please message me, Master Sonda Stokes, with comments or concerns. Stay safe, friends. Tang Soo!


Friends - we're still considering when it will be safe and sensible to re-open to live classes in the dojang. We are following the lead of Plano Parks and Rec, which has put its martial arts classes on hold for now. Please comment below with concerns/options/ideas. I am not seeing that Zoom is a reasonable way to proceed, but I could be convinced. Thanks, Master Sonda Stokes,


πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜•πŸ€¨πŸ₯‹ When will we be together again to train at the dojang? Soon enough, I'm sure. Stay strong, be safe, train at home as best you can. Tang Soo!


No April Fool - Black Tiger will continue to remain in hiatus through Thursday, April 30, at which time we hope the Gov Abbott will be able to lift the stay at home orders and we can anticipate returning to in-class training the first week of May. Stay safe and stay tuned! Tang Soo!


Friends, after re-evaluating the sensible management of this health crisis, the instructors here at Black Tiger have decided that for the time being, training at the dojang will be suspended. We encourage everyone to train as they can at home. Hopefully, this situation will pass without too much further disruption to our normal activities and we can meet together again. Stay strong, stay safe. Tang Soo!


Message from Master Sonda Stokes, owner and Senior Instructor of Black Tiger: As we get through this challenge, I wanted to assure all members and those interested in training with us that the dojang WILL remain open, weekly Tu/Th 6:30-7:30pm. We will maintain a safe social distance, training only forms and techniques but no self-defense/grappling for the time being. Should students wish to train at home, we certainly appreciate your concerns and anyone, BTK member or general public, may message me for at-home training tips. Stay safe, cover your sneezes, and Tang Soo!

Congratulations to Jackson R., Gup student 2016 Tiger of the Year! At each class, a student is chosen to be Tiger of the Night for exemplifying that month's Tenet/Life Code. Each month, one student is chosen from the nominees to be Tiger of the Month and display a yard sign. At the first of the year, a name is drawn from the 12 Tigers of the Month nominees to be honored for the year. Jackson has worked hard this past year on not only his martial arts skills, but also his growth as a young man. We are proud of him and all our students. Tang Soo!
