Rebecca broke through 2 boards during her red-belt test!
Christian was also successful with the same combination fist-strike turning into a side-kick!
Together, the group of students demonstrated 4 of the Gateway belt forms.
Each student was asked to repeat one of the forms individually as well.
Christian’s evaluator commended him for his “good pace / power / targets / balance.”
Rebecca was noted for her “excellent speed & power.”
Christian volunteered to demonstrate the optional tonfa weapon form.

[Striped belts represent a midpoint between one belt level and the next.]
Christian and Rebecca have only 2 more testing sessions until they are black belts!
