Purple Belt

Ethan has been slowly progressing up through the levels of difficulty in Tae Kwon Do for a year and a half now. On Saturday, he tested for his purple belt and found success!

 In order to earn this belt, he not only had to display knowledge and proper use of kicks and punches (alone and in combinations), but he also had to master 3 separate “forms”, spar with a peer and break a wooden board with nothing other than a well-delivered side kick. Since his “breaking” kicks have not been extremely consistent, I have been a slight bit worried for a couple of weeks, but Ethan focused well and kicked right through the board!

Hooray for Ethan; another accomplishment forged through hard work!
