WTSDA Region 7 Spring Black Belt Test

It was a cold and rainy day in Mebane, North Carolina, a small community just in the shadow of the WTSDA Headquarters. But that didn’t stop the twelve candidates at the Region 7 Spring Black Belt test from heating up the floor!

The test was held at Mebane Art and Community Center on Saturday, April 7. The four candidates testing for E Dan and the eight candidates testing for Cho Dan all successfully completed the test.
