COLOR BELT TESTS
Color belt tests at the Taekwondo & Hapkido Academy are rewarding and exciting for all who attend. The most valuable aspect of the testing process is the confidence students gain from demonstrating their new martial arts skills before family, training partners, friends, and instructors. When they step on the mat to test students know they have the collective support of this community. They come prepared to work hard and show what they can do. In the end, they go home happy and energized with their new belts and Certificates of Rank.

Their pride and joy over their accomplishment was clear to all and the entire academy celebrated them with huge rounds of applause and cheering. It was a day to remember for these two little martial artists!
Two advanced Junior Eagles received their red belts on Saturday after an excellent test - and both are very excited to start training for their Junior Eagles black belts!
