Dragon Heart Tang Soo Do Demonstrates Family Love

Families aren’t always blood related. It is people who care enough about each other to do more than nod sympathetically when listening to another person’s troubles. Our martial art school is serious about training (several of our students have gone on to win regional and world cups in our discipline and our instructor, Becky Rupp was 2007 Teacher of the year for the entire Tang Soo Do Organization spanning six continents) but, thanks to our teacher, we are a very close and caring group concerned more with honor, self improvement (and having fun) than with just winning.

This weekend, Salmon Creek Community had a fundraising event for one of its families. Two of the children are members of the Tang Soo Do Little Dragons (the youngest martial artists) so members of the Tang Soo Do Demo team came up to perform to help raise money for the family.

My littlest is still trying to imitate their intricate moves. He can’t wait to use nunchucks now!

Call 923-2886 for more information about classes, etc.
