Congratulations to all of our Black Belt Testing Candidates from both our Orem & Draper schools that participated in Black Belt Testing over the weekend! We had 6 students testing for 1st Dan, 3 for 2nd Dan, and 3 of our Instructors testing for their 4th Dan:

1st Dan Testers: Ayden C, Geobani N, Jill A, Keilah V, Lydia B, Soham S

2nd Dan Testers: Dahyun H, Fiorella C, Mckenzie S

4th Dan Testers: Mr. Julian, Mr. Jared, Miss Samy

The Black Belt Test was a 2-day event, starting with the Physical Exam on Friday night that consisted of kicking, pushups, squats, situps, and more. On Saturday morning, we started off with the Black Belt 5K. We loved seeing so many family members & non-testing students come out and run the 5K to support our Black Belt Testers.

Following that, we had a Black Belt Breakfast back at our Orem studio, and then began the written & technical examinations. We saw lots of poomsae, self-defense, sparring, freestyle poomsae, weapons, board break, and Mr. Jared & Mr. Julian even broke a brick that was literally ON FIRE!!

Once more, congratulations to all of our Black Belt Testers, everyone did a phenomenal job! We are so excited to have new Black Belts earned and to see everyone continue to advance in their Taekwondo journey.

Black Belt Graduation for those that successfully passed their exam will be held on Saturday, December 2nd.
