Likewise, congratulations to FuSifu Albert and Kyosa Simon on your fourth and first black belt achievements. Thank you to all the Champaign students, family and teachers that made the drive up; you are great!

Promotion Test
Posted Oct 23, 2016

Fall and the holiday season is starting. And that can mean only one thing. Well, many things. For the schools, however, it means the combined promotion test, slated for November 19, 2016, at the Chicago school, starting at 10 am. Let's hope the snow does not inundate us this year. Enjoy the company and support of your kung fu brothers and sisters. Family and friends are always welcome. See you there!
