Congratulations to All Those Who Have Tested Thursday!

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

Congratulations to all who have tested today, Thursday April 26th! And thank you to all the Masters and Instructors who came to help in judging, holding targets, and in overall support of our students! Also our special helpers Elizabeth, Theo and Milia! They are our 1st and 2nd Dan Black Belts who came to assist their fellow peers. Special thanks to Brennen (5th Dan) and Lucas (2nd Dan) for their help and congratulations on their testing! We also like to thank our Masters Maria and Robert Zavalakos for coming in to support our students and to help with judging!

As always, we like to continue encouraging our students to not only reach Black Belt but become Instructors and Masters. Becoming a Black Belt is when the true journey begins. The path to Black Belt is a preparation for the deeper training of knowing oneself before helping others.

We are closed for class on Friday April 27, 2018. Our classes will resume on April 30th, Monday! That is when we will have a belt presentations and certificates awarded to our students during their classes!

Congratulations and have a great weekend! 🙂

Testing is Today!

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

Testing is today, Thursday April 26th at 6pm! We asked everyone to come in early to find a parking space, have time to stretch and practice!

Just remember to focus, embrace being nervous to find your inner peace, and YELL 🙂 . It is not how high you kick, but the technique of your kick. We have all seen how you perform in class, but the question is how you perform under pressure. You know more than you did yesterday, that is for sure. Now it is your moment to show it.

***It is a formal event and we ask everyone to come in dressed with their formal uniform attire, no T-shirts.

***All applications should already be turned into Mrs. Chung’s office. 

***Classes are cancelled during testing dates.

We wish everyone good luck!
