I think they need to go thru 4 chapters of internal assessment, before they can take the Poom belt grading which I think it is held in February 2018.  Together with Jay Jay’s 2nd Poom belt grading.  Jay Jay has two years to prepare for the 2nd Poom belt grading.

It is good that the assessment is not happening in Millenia Walk during F1 weekend.  The assessment is held at West Coast branch just opposite Haw Par Villa.

I remember when I was young many many years back then, the sparring is a contact sparring.  Which you need to fight until you get promoted.

Nowadays they changed it to non-contact sparring.

Of course, every time they kick still need to shout.

Kick at the same time.

Ooi.. dancing ah?

_DSF1387.jpg

Synchronise kicking ah?

And the board breaking.  Didn’t managed to video down the first punch board breaking.  Only the kick board breaking.

After learning the technique.  Kay Kay is better at the board breaking liao.

After seeing the St. Hilda student bullies fighting video, I feel better as my kids are equipment with defence capabilities (Taekwondo).  Although small size, at least, he knows how to defend against a punch a kick.  This life skill is very useful until reservist, until they go out and work in the society.

It is good for their body too.  So, next chapter assessment is December.  And the STF grading will be in February.  Jan-Feb will be the busiest time for Kay Kay as he has to go thru at least 12 lessons and 12 sparring hours within 2 months to be eligible for the first poom grading.  Jay Jay will be taking his 2nd poom the same time too.
