Yellow belt!

Last night, Andrew was given his yellow belt certification in taekwondo!  He has now officially moved from white belt to yellow belt and will be training in a more advanced class.  Due to a shipping delay, none of the students were able to actually receive their new belts at the awards ceremony, but they will all get them at class tomorrow.

The judges used E (excellent), S (satisfactory), and N (needs improvement) to rate each student testing for yellow belt on 21 specific moves and 4 general areas.  Andrew received mostly S’s, only two N’s (on his  “inner forearm block, back stance” and his “answer ups” – loudly saying, “Yes Sir!” when addressed), and E’s on each of the following:

forearm strike, front stance

turning round kick, middle stance

crescent kick, front stance

hook kick, middle stance

uniform neatness


We are really proud of Andrew’s accomplishment.  He has learned a lot so far and will be making even more progress in the coming weeks and months.
Great job, Andrew!
