Wow! What an amazing belt test on Saturday! We challenged our students to demonstrate 15-25 different techniques (depending on belt level) and our students showed that they have worked hard to master the variety of moves. What really struck me most (pun), was the way our students persevered during the board breaks. Most of the breaks took several attempts. However, our students were undaunted in their achievement of their goals. Who cares how many attempts it requires? All that matters is that our students kept at it until they succeeded! We are very proud of our students, and can’t wait for more amazing belt tests to come!
