After 4.5 years of training,
including weekly classes,
at least 8 Saturdays of advanced training,
and writing 5- to 6-page papers* on a related topic,
our students earned their martial arts black belts!
What an amazing accomplishment for young adults aged 13 and 15!
Many thanks to the panel of judges, instructors, and sparring assistants
of Gateway Martial Arts,
especially Mrs. Fry, Mrs. Tilmann, and Mrs. Troxell,
for their numerous hours of teaching and patience.
P.S. Christian and Rebecca also thank
Aunt Bianca and their Grandparents
for their support in attending the looooong
(and sometimes violent) black belt test!!
