In this picture you see our Dojang Christmas tree about a week ago. Here you see it decorated with tags that hold the names of people in need this Christmas season. And though it is now empty, our hearts are full for the realization that this martial arts family as a community, are gathering together to help others in need. Our students could not wait to take on this years project and neither could we. Merry Christmas everyone!!!
It is a tradition at the School of Respect for our students to help cut their own boards for a black belt test. This past weekend after a test prep class the students gathered out side to get the job done. They are able to see what they will face and feel it in their hands. This process is a monumental moment in the mind of a future black belt at the School of Respect.
