Fox's Black Belt Ceremony

Fox has been training for months and finally earned his black belt in Tae Kwon Do last week!
It has been hard work--there was a huge training packet that needed to be completed, which included physical requirements, such as doing 100 pushups at a time, and some other requirements, including a book report--Fox read the Art of War and Man's Search for Meaning.
Finally, after his training was completed, he had to take a 10 hour test.  The first test was 5 hours of physical exercise--pushups, squats, jumps, showing forms, and other maneuvers.  The second test was 5 hours of learning a brand new routine and then performing it perfectly.
His school had a huge ceremony last week and really honored those who progressed to black belt.
Fox and Master Nam, who likes to brag that his black belt tests are the hardest in the nation.

That's a big trophy--it is much taller than Cash!

I didn't get many good shots, but here is some video of Fox's board-breaking routine:

 Go Fox! He has managed subbing full-time, assistant teaching at the Tae Kwon Do studio part time, plus full-time grad school on top of training! We are very proud of him!
