2015-tournament-1 Dear Dragons,

Congratulations to all the warriors who competed in the 18th annual Spring Wisconsin tournament. We had over 100 competitor entries with two additional schools sending students and teachers to compete and assist.

It was a great day that saw all kinds of forms (tai chi, kung fu, kenpo and weapon) and many different types of sparring (point, chinese wrestling, weapon and full contact)! Be proud of showing your warrior spirit in the ring and be sure to mark down the event and results in your Rising Dragon Portfolio.

Black Belt Testing & Free Seminars June 13th
Our next big focus is June 11-13 with a 3 day black belt test in Tai Chi for Sifu Melodie, Sihing Jon and Sihing Doug. Be wishing them well to spend 12 hour days showing their material and proving themselves in the ancient fire of testing in Pai Lum. Those who pass their test will receive the black sash with their names both in English and in Chinese calligraphy. They will receive scrolls with their new name and show the fringe on their sash of SiFu!

2015-tournament-3Everyone will benefit from their teaching skills on Thursday, June 13 as part of their test they will give 3 free seminars for all students from 5:30-7:30. All students of all ages are welcome that night. And you can see the results of their testing at the awards ceremony on Saturday June 13 at 12:00 p.m. May your testing be filled with Ha Na!
