Best of luck on your upcoming exams!
This Saturday, Sep 8th, three red belts from the Junior Taekwondo program will be testing for their Junior Black Belt. A Junior Black Belt test is a milestone both in someone's Taekwondo journey but also in their life. The skills and experiences these three will take away from the test will be with them forever and will help them move through their martial arts journey. Help us wish Mr. Connor, Ms. Bonita, and Ms. Rayna good luck in their exam!
In addition, our adult Kumdo & Kumbup program will be hosting their semi-annual colored belt testing this Saturday, Sept. 8th. Testing students include Mr. Trevor, Mrs. Vicki, Ms. Elian, Mr. Mason, Ms. Nan, and Mr. Max. Our Kumdo & Kumbup program develops the art of the sword and requires the practitioner to free their mind of worry and implement intense focus and weapon control. Good luck!
Finally, our adult Hapkido program will be hosting their colored belt exam on Tuesday, September 25th. Testing students include Mr. Trevor, Mrs. Jess, Mr. Adam, Mr. Mason, Mr. Cody, and Ms. Elian. Hapkido is our practical street self-defense program which incorporates falls, sweeps, and joint locks. Best of luck on the upcoming exam!
