I know that Christmas is past, New Year’s resolutions have been set, and most of them have been broken by now. But from what I was told the Rank Advancement and Holiday Party was outstanding.
Mr. Chavez said “I don’t really know what to say about my rank promotion except that I’m no longer a ‘blueberry’, so I’m still trying to figure out what fruit I am! The holiday party was also fun, I’ve never been bowling before, unless you count bowling on the Wii. But just everyone being there and having fun was great.”
Ms. Bunch said “The December promotions were awesome – 3 Black Belts got their 1st Dan belts, with their names embroidered. And 3 more got their Cho-Dan belts (they get the official belts in another 6 months). One of them is only 9, very likely the youngest Cho-Dan ever promoted in Utah!
This was the first promotion where I wasn’t promoted – I’m still in training for my own Cho-Dan belt. But around 35 others were promoted, and the atmosphere was very happy and festive.”
Congratulations to all those who was advanced in rank, thanks for all the hard work that you put into Taekwon-Do. And to everyone else, keep working hard, and enjoy what you are doing.
For the Holiday Party, everyone got on the Burning Phoenix Bus and went to the bowling lanes. Mr. Balta was promoted on the bus, and from what it sounds like everyone had a great time. Thanks to everyone for making 2011 such a great year!
Ms. Bunch said “I’d love to do another bowling trip with our school, or even just go down there to play pool and video games. I’m hoping next time we can stick around for longer, and maybe get a few more games in!”
Let’s give it up for Burning Phoenix TKD!
