Back From Testing! Belt Presentations!

Monday, June 29th, 2015

We are back from testing working on our techniques, basics, and drills. We had a cardio workout filled with running, target practice, and weapons.

This week starting tomorrow we are having our belt presentations for our students that have testing Thursday and Friday of last week. Belts will be distributed during each student’s class along with their certificate. Congratulations to everyone for their hard work!

Also a reminder, we will be closed this Wednesday July 1st through July 3rd for the Independence Weekend Holiday. We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday! We will be back on Monday, July 6th! See you then!

Congratulations to Our Adults!

Friday, June 26th, 2015

Congratulations to all our adults who tested! They did an excellent job and are becoming more calm under stress. Special congratulations to Nicholas Jones, our young Deputy Black belt who had the privilege to test with our adults and completed an incredible power break. He has come a long way, his mom and him are incredibly involved in demonstrations, competitions, and our family events. He has started teaching students below his belt rank and displays wonderful leadership skills. His serious character and determination will take him far!

Congratulations to Ethan, James, and Mr. Franck on their power breaks; they completed their task in one-shot. They had a wonderful testing, especially Mr. Franck who did not miss a move! Mr. Franck, Mr. Charles, and James have been helping in the 6:30pm classes and they have been wonderful with the students. Today we had witnessed their great progress, especially to Mr. Charles who had not tested in many years yet has the agility of someone half his age. Congratulations to all our students on their hard work and determination to achieving their goals at becoming better martial artists and individuals.

We would like to thank Mr. Charles, Mr. Franck, Master Maria, Master Dr.Adler for their help throughout the testing. Also a special thank you to our judges Master Dr.Adler, Master Robert & Maria Zavalakos for judging and their continual support!

Belt presentation is tomorrow and we look forward to seeing our students to hand them their belts and certificates. Congratulations!

Also a reminder, we will be closed this week July 1st (Wednesday) through July 3rd (Friday) in observance of the Independence Day Holiday Weekend. We hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday!

Congratulations to all our students who have tested yesterday! They did an excellent job! Special congratulations to our first-time testing participants! We would like to remind our parents that we evaluate their overall progress, not only during the testing date, but since their last test 2 months ago. Also congratulations to our Deputy belts, John Lacy and Vincent Nguyen, with their power break, and also to our Black Belts Samuel Novaton and Alan Pham on their testing. These are our future generation of coming instructors who will make us proud!

We would like to thank Mr. Franck Chantayan and Mr. Charles Worsham for their continued help during this test and the 6:30pm afternoon class! They are our upcoming instructors and do an excellent job everyday supporting our students with lessons, holding targets & boards, and instructing them to ease the students nerves.

We would like to thank our Masters Robert & Maria Zavalakos for coming in to evaluate our students. No matter what is happening in their lives with school and work, they always manage to come in to help during testing. We thank and appreciate your continued support! We wish everyone continued success, and remind everyone that our Belt Presentation will be on Monday during class on June 29th!
