Yellow belt testing, October 2009

In this video, we see Dylan and Jennifer testing together. During class, we practice with our classmates next to us. Maintaining concentration with someone performing a different pattern is challenging. With the pressure of a promotion test, the challenge is even greater. We were very pleased with the confidence and performance of Jennifer and Dylan.

Dylan demonstrates a rear leg side kick to break a board. Please note that these are not children’s boards, these are 3/4 inch pine.

Jennifer Butler had the challenge of breaking with a lead leg side kick. “It’s easy when you have momentum”, said Grandmaster SJ Kim. In this demonstration, Jennifer is asked to go from a complete standing still position and generate power and speed using only the lead leg.
