Student Hall of Fame: Joshua L.
Updated: Aug 10, 2019
When I first created the Student Hall of Fame it was meant to inspire and motivate our youth to practice extra at home, before, and after class. What I didn't anticipate was the obsession and dedication some students showed to collect all the patches. After over a year of hard work and dedication, I am proud to introduce the first inductee into our Student Hall of Fame... Joshua L.!
At age 7, he has attained all SIX Achievement Patches (Sparring, Split Club, Power Kick, 1st Weapon, Academic, Strong Stance). You can read more about them here. I started teaching Joshua when he was a member of our Tiger Team at 4 years old. You can always find him practicing before, after, and outside of class. It is amazing to see such hard work and dedication at such a young age, a true representation of the Kung Fu spirit! At Red Belt, he is only three levels away from his Black Belt and continuing to work hard every class!
Below are a few words from Joshua regarding his training and motivation!
