We had a good turn out for this grading. With the assistance of Sabum Mayumi, an international instructor & examiner who examined the TaekwonKids grading, the grading ran on schedule. Sabum Mayumi reported that all TaekwonKids had a high standard, while the TaekwonDults confidently exhibited sharp and precise techniques to examiner Sonim Sahyun Tam in the main hall. The standard of the jejas has definitely improved since the last grading and is destined to further improve.
Samantha Tam and Musk Chow should be commended for their skills in technical breaking and "no sweat" in their 15 rounds of sparring. Thanks to Sabum Raymond Sue who has been preparingthem on the sideline in his Punch-On fitness class. Both girls made it and passed their graing to 2nd Dan. Kevin Quach has been well prepared for his grading and his self defense techniques were flawless with effective control, subduing his attackers. Kevin went on to break what ever he was asked, despite his sprained ankle in his gruelling 15 rounds of matsogi. Kevin is now the newst yudanja in Tam Taekwon-Do Mudokwan. Well done to all three new degree holders and also well done and congratulations to all TaekwonKids and TaekwonDults who passed their grading.
Thanks goes to Boosabum Jacek, Joseph Do and Colin Pong who came in very early set up the dojang for the grading and all other black belts who supported your dojangmates.
