My son had his brown belt testing on Thursday 12-2-10. He passed he is now a brown trim belt. He has this belt then red belt, red trim belt then his instructors will decide when he is ready to test for the black belt...kind of sucks I found out that I can watch when he tests for the black belt. I find it simply amazing that he is so powerful yet so gentle. He was doing a 21 movement with a girl in his class and Grand Mater Spencer told him make sure you don't hurt her. Kennize is all of 5ft and maybe 100# my boy is 6'3" and 245#.
Here is his kick.





I felt bad for Ms. LaBell as she had to break three boards. She could break the right one everytime but not the left.

He is practicing Tae kwon Do. He hopes that once he has his second degree black belt to open his own Dojang on the reservation. He wants to have a total green building. He is going to talk to the Tribal College to see if they will help with the construction as they just started a building program with this area in mind. He already has connection for putting up the windmill in fact four years ago he helped put up the first one on the reservation.

Not only will it have Tae Kwon Do but also implement a nutritional program and a language program. He is learning Ojibwe right now so he will be able to help in this area too.

Thanks for looking.

Thank you all for your response. I am so proud of him. It wasn't easy to raise him as a single mother then I lost my mom when he was just 10 so I had no one to fall back on to help me during the teenage years. I am thankful he got into Tae Kwon Do and that he loves it.

My bestfriend has her test for her third den in TKD coming up pretty soon so I know how tough it can be. Best of luck to him! Just a quick suggestion on working for his own dojo, working with your instructor in teaching his current class is probably a great way to get into the teaching aspects.

I think thats great.
I never belted.all of my training was mixed bag.we street and club fought.so never got the regimented cirriculum.we blended several arts to be able to have a more fullfilling defense.
back then it was illegal,and today they have UFC.

that's awesome. if he's persistent, i'm sure everything will work in his favor. i've always believed good things come to those who worked hard for something and then used their talent to help others. don't let him give up on his dream though. he'll need that extra push whenever someone else tests him with doubt. :clap:

Sharon, I'm so sorry I missed this on here. i did, however, see it on Facebook and commented on it there, if that counts for anything, lol.

Please tell Andreas I said big Congrats on passing his test, and best of luck in his future endeavors for me. I know he will go far with a mother like you to back him up!! You should be proud of yourself, as well, for supporting him in all he does. Some parents don't care to even go to events like this and support their children when they need it the most. Truth is, that's all a child really wants is the support and praise of their parent(s) in all they do.

Big pat on the back for you Sharon, and a huge round of applause for Andreas from me and Trinity!! Tell him to keep up the great work.
