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.

Other Black Belts who attended the event participated in an informative and invigorating training session with Master Frank Fattori, Director of Region 8. He brought to life many of our hyung with his demonstration of technique and the applications of each move.

At the end of the test, Ms. Jenna Stephens was voted by the testing panel to receive the Spirit Award.

It was a productive day of demonstrating and fine tuning the beautiful, powerful art of Tang Soo Do. Tang Soo!
