Woo Kim students earn black belts

Over 80 students received new belts at June promotion test

WOO KIM TAEKWONDO has seven new black belts following their June promotion test.

Seven Woo Kim Taekwondo students achieved their black belts this past weekend at the June promotion test.

Ricky Richter, Alexandra Lewis-Chase, Zach Lewis-Chase, Matthew Lewis, Jeremy Lewis, Keagon Macdonald and Jordyn Porier all revived their 1st Dan (degree) black belts, and Minjun Cha received his 3rd Dan on Sunday from Grandmaster Woo Kim and head Instructors Richard Dobbs and Anne Koke.  All together over 80 students received new belts, all of whom continue to work toward their black belt goal.

Woo Kim, an 8th Dan Grandmaster, founded the club in the Comox Valley in 1972 after moving from Seoul Korea and still enjoys coming back to the Valley for seminars and tests.

Now, under the instruction of Sabumim’s Dobbs and Koke there are well over 100 students,  with many regularly competing around the province.  Students range in age from five years old to 60 years young.

Traditional taekwondo teaches core values of respect, integrity, perseverance and self-control while sport taekwondo can take athletes all the way up to the Olympic Games.

For more information regarding Woo Kim Taekwondo  checkthe Comox and Courtenay recreation centres or their program guides. Alternatively, contact Richard Dobbs directly at 250-897-2452.
