We had our annual Black Belt Test this past Saturday. I am happy to report that all of our students worked hard and performed very well. Congratulations to all of them. They trained for many years and specially hard during the last 5 months of “Black Belt Boot Camp”. We had 10 students testing for 1st degree, 8 testing for 2nd degree and 2 testing for their 3rd degree Black Belt. I am proud of all of them, but especially Gabbi Smith and Zoe Hur who tested for their 3rd degree. They are both excellent students (both academically and in Tae Kwon Do) and are positive role models for our junior belts. We will be awarding their black belts during our next promotion test. Speaking of the Promotion Test, the next promotion test will be held on Friday, June 6th at 4:00Pm. Test Roster will be e-mailed next week.
Now that we just wrapped up our Saturday morning Black Belt Boot Camp classes, we will be giving all the instructors a well deserved break. There will be no regular Saturday morning classes until September; however, you can come to the 10:00am Cardio/MMA Saturday Morning classes with Sa-bum-nim Tony. The class is free for our current students and $10 drop-in for family members. For this class you do not need to be in tae kwon do dobok (uniform), you can wear any comfortable clothing.
Lastly, studio will be closed Friday, May 23 and Monday, May 26th in observance of Memorial Day Weekend. Cardio /MMA class is still on.
