Choi Kwang Do


Isn't that a beautiful dog? 

YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE ME FOR THIS SITE!

http://www.northpole.com/


Isn't this a handsome boy?




Grandson is a first degree blackbelt.  He just received a purple stripe on his way to second degree.  
He has red - brown and then he goes for his second degree blackbelt.  This will take about a year.

He has been doing this for about six to seven years now.



Sandra/Madsnapper I figure out how to take a moving picture on my camera AND put it on my blog!
Here is the whole group for this center!  The white coats are kids just starting.  The red coats are in a black belt club and they have promised to stay in until they recieve their black belt.  The blue coats are student instructors and you have to be 13.  The black coats are head instructors - which have to be third degree black belts and higher AND have instructor training.
This is from Auntie Szzzzz blog and she got it from Victorian Trading Catalog.


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

From D.M. Dillinger

“People are partying, songs are being sung, Sugarplums are dancing, all in holiday fun. Presents are under the tree, reindeer fly high above, peace on earth, goodwill to all, sending joy and love!”
