Both Mr. & Mrs. Bennett tested last month in Florida for 6th Degree Black Belt and passed! These dedicated students & school owners of Black Belt Academy in Cloverdale train weekly with Sr. Master Karpiuk. The next step in their journey is Mastership next June. Both started training with Sr. Master Karpiuk after enrolling their two young boys (4 and 6) at Newton Black Belt Academy. It wasn’t long before they decided this was a great family activity. Now the “boys” work part-time for their parents helping them run a successful martial arts school in Langley.
Training to become this level of Black Belt takes time, commitment and much perseverance. On top of that, to be successful both in competition and training their own students is a tremendous achievement. I’m very proud of the Bennetts and all that they have accomplished. It has been an hounor for me to train them in taekwondo. I consider them more than just loyal students, but friends as well. God Bless your continued efforts and I look forward to witnessing your Mastership Induction!
