Black Belt Testing

Samuel completed his black belt testing for taekwondo last night and this morning.  He did awesome, but we'll know for sure if he passed either next Friday or the Wednesday after that.  Master Pae knows we are anxious to get the final word because we are planning a party to celebrate.  Here are some highlights:

The Judges: Master Pae center
Flying Side Kick**
Reading one of two required essays
Stretching at the school picnic/testing day 2
Warm up jog....waaaaaaaaay over there
Punching practice
Black belt testing: 3 on 1 sparring
Black belt testing: five different breaks (fifth is two boards together out of the picture)
And the second board breaks

And here is a video of Sam's board breaking:

Sam has worked hard to get to this point.  We are really proud of him.
