Four area youth earn junior black belts in Tae Kwon Do


After studying Tae Kwon Do for more than four years, four area youth achieved a difficult milestone that few youth or adults accomplish. Ethan Hunt, Konnor Kurilla, Max Dwyer and Kaleb Sundstrom passed their examination and earned their junior black belts in Tae Kwon Do.

The four-hour test was a culmination of years of training that included memorization and mastery of hundreds of kicking and punching techniques, eight forms (patterns), self-defense and 25 boards to break.
