Yesterday the eldest of the Young Princes made his second black belt in Tae Kwon Do! Here are some photos and videos from the belt testing. All of the students did so very well in their black belt testing. It’s not for the faint of heart (or hand!)

First the students have to show off their forms.

Then they spar.

Finally they break the boards. Ada got very excited every time someone broke a board. Can you stand it? šŸ˜šŸ˜‚

David was one of the last to go, but only one of two who completed the process with ease. He had 50 boards to break.

Moral of the story, don’t get into a fight with David. Fortunately for you, he’s one of the most non-combative people you’ll ever meet–but he’s fiercely protective.

One of the young men made his fourth degree black belt, making him a “master.” Congratulations Master Jason! Get a load of all the boards he had to break! He broke 100 boards, and we got to count down from 91 to 100. It was quite a moving experience!

Congratulations David!

This was an act of mortification and obedience on his part. He can earn a black belt AND grace at the same time!
