Student Hall of Fame: Edward W.
When Edward first started Kung Fu, we knew that there was something special about him. Since day one, he has been one of the loudest and most energetic in class! It has been a great pleasure of ours to teach this youngster and watch him grow into the confident Kung Fu warrior he is today! During his journey as a Tiger, he has competed in tournaments, increased his striking power to break boards, and become one of the loudest students in class.
With his hard work, bravery, and dedication he is ready to take the next step in his training and train with the older DRAGON TEAM class! After about a year of hard work and dedication, I am proud to introduce the fourth TIGER inductee into our Student Hall of Fame... Edward W.!
At age 5, he has attained all FIVE TIGER Achievement Patches (Split Club, Power Kick, 1st Weapon, Academic, Strong Stance). You can read more about them here.
