Mind. Body. Spirit. These three words are carved into the stone that make up part of the red brick edifice of the Judd Gym our weekend Dojang at Springfield College. While it could never have been envisaged how appropriate a motto it would be when the building was constructed in 1894, it was a fitting reminder on entry for the New England Tang Soo Do students who worked out here for the 2015 New England Regional Black Belt Camp. For the last three years we have been blessed to have the backdrop and use of the facilities of Springfield College for our camp and with the fine weather we have been accustomed to on this particular weekend of the year, the picturesque campus has been an excellent temporary home for us.

The Saturday following Columbus Day means two things to us Tang Soo Do practitioners in New England. Epic scenery from the changing foliage and the Atlantic Pacific Tang Soo Do Federation’s Regional Tournament and Black Belt test. Once more we headed to the picturesque town of Dover, New Hampshire home of Great Bay Tang Soo Do. Great Bay has been the host for the last three regional tournaments, but this year’s edition was more poignant after an environmental incident at the building the school was located in rendered the old studio unusable and forced Great Bay to move to new premises barely six weeks before they were due to host the tournament. Great Bay’s students rose to the occasion cleaning and decorating the new space, moving all the furniture and equipment from the old studio and setting everything up in time that only one week of classes were lost to the whole ordeal and the studio was fit for purpose in time.
