Outdoor black belt test

We met soon after sunrise on early Sunday morning, May 8th, 2016. A parking lot full of anticipation, excitement, and worry for the unknown. Cloud covered skies, the students began a light warm up with the instruction of SuSa Stern, who is testing for his 4th Degree black belt. The parents congregate and watch their children warm up, some stand with pride and some stand with concern. They know that this will be a challenge for their children and they are supportive of their growth, yet you can still see the butterfly’s attempting to leave their belly’s. After a short safety talk with the students, Grand Master Yoo calls for a quick staff meeting, to position the leaders roles. We line up, put our bags on, and run into the beginning of a once-in-a-life-time experience – The Black Belt Outdoor Test.
