Perseverance is usually a big part of any worthy goal. Especially achieving higher ranks in the martial arts. So to say I'm very proud of the students that tested for higher ranks on Friday, March 11th, is an understatement. Many restriction and obstacles have been put in front everyone in the last year. So for these student to maintain their focus and commitment during the last few months is impressive.
Because of the pandemic we did not have any sparring or partner drills. What we did do is focus on the basics like hand positioning, balance, movement and prober execution of both offense and defensive techniques. And I believe it really shows in theses photos of the test. Enjoy!
