Master Wood returns from France for Christmas belt examinations
Proud founder Master Bruce Wood looks forward to the future of our art ................
It was my great pleasure to return from France to participate in the assessment of some 350 Sooyang Do students during the belt examinations of Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th December and what a privilege it turned out to be.
The skill and spirit exhibited by those, of all ages, seeking promotion and the commitment and loyalty of my instructors is always humbling and this year was even better than ever.
One of the particularly pleasing aspects of the examinations this year was the continued and continuing development of the young trainee instructors and junior leaders, who provide assurance that the future of our Martial Art is in safe hands.
I am always proud of the Sooyang Do team and was delighted to witness the continued adherence to the time-honoured tenets and unique spirit of Sooyang Do, as well as the technical excellence on display.
I am extremely proud of the students who took part and grateful for the energy and drive of the instructors, many of whom make personal sacrifices and overcome all manner of obstacles to ensure their students continue to benefit from their knowledge and experience.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in Sooyang Do, to wish you all a wonderful festive season and look forward to celebrating the 15th anniversary of Sooyang Do with you in May 2018.
