Black Belt Spring Class of 2018
Congratulations to our newest black belts who endured a grueling six-hour examination conducted by Master Jeff Chow on Saturday, March 10. The examination included a comprehensive review of all their Kung Fu techniques and knowledge. Students were led through weapon sets, hand forms, rapid Choy Lay Fut combinations, self-defense, and they ended the test with challenging endurance exercises and board-breaking.
Each class of black belts means something different to me. This class represented 'family' to me. Though there were only 5 students representing us, some of them I've had the pleasure of teaching since they were Tigers. It has truly been a pleasure of my teaching career to be part of their journey as martial artists and their maturation into young adults. It has been amazing to watch them take ownership of their training through extra practice and camaraderie over the years, demonstrating the self-discipline, concentration, and kindness of a true warrior. Thank you to the families for continually trusting our academy with your youth and for letting us be part of their evolution as martial artists and young adults!
The achievement of receiving a Black Belt is a memory that lasts a lifetime. Join us in congratulating all of our Spring Class of 2017 (see list below)
