On Saturday, February 6th, 2016, Rocket Tae Kwon Do held two large events.
First, it was black belt upgrade time for three of our students/assistants. Kayla Reed tested for 2nd dan. Isabel Castaneda and Miles Whitmore tested for 3rd dan. All three of them passed in two separate, grueling tests.
Next, Master Jeffrey Davis was promoted to 5th dan black belt by Master David Mitchell of the Madison Tae Kwon Do Center. The ceremony was attended by almost every student from both locations.
Congratulations to Kayla, Isabel, and Miles for their astounding achievements… and most certainly congratulations to master Davis, our fearless founder and leader of Rocket Tae Kwon Do!
After the promotions, Master Davis called forth all of the students and promoted them with a stripe and new belts. A group photo was taken with all of us 🙂

We have updated the forms pages to point to the YouTube channel instead of using locally-hosted videos. This should ease the pain of playing the videos on mobile devices.
Don’t forget that you can order a DVD of all of the forms for $5.00. If you’re interested, please contact Rachel Hernandez or Master Davis.

Hello Rocket TKD team! There was some discussion about a trip out to Cathedral Caverns one Saturday this summer. It looks like we’ll be targeting Saturday, June 16th for that trip. We’ll be looking to use this site and the public site to collect some head count information so we can try to line up a tour.

UPDATE: The original date was June 9th. It is now June 16th!
