Dear Grand Master Min, Master Hua, Master Brown, Instructor Edward and other Champion TKD Friends - We thought you'd be excited to know that Ethan won the USA Taekwondo (National Qualifier) Kansas State Championship (Gold Medal) this weekend in both poomsae and sparring for Dragons (6-7 y.o.) in the fin weight class of the red belt division. Thanks so much for the extremely solid foundation and love for TKD that you helped instill in him. We are truly appreciative and hope you are doing well. All the best - Ryan, Melissa, and Ethan Hardy.
Thank you Master Min and Master Brown and all the instructors for all your help and support to get Ryan and Owen ready for their tournament today. They did great! Thirds in forms and seconds in sparring. Thank you thank you!

Lea last day at Champion TKD 2015 11/26/2015

Lea, I didn't realize that the sparring you and Edward had tonight would be the last we'll share for a while. It will be difficult to fill the void created by your absence here and you are a terrific friend and student. It's time to move on to conquer new battles and scale new heights. Remember, you don’t ever stop chasing your dreams and pursuing the things you love. Train hard, fight hard and let others worry about you! It feels a long time until we catch up again for next year, but hopefully it will pass quicker in the time you're away. You are always welcome at Champion Taekwondo School. We will miss you, take care of yourself and keep in touch. Have a safe trip back to home – Master Hua
