This afternoon Archer had his first promotion test for Tae Kwon Do. He started this fall and was pretty excited to advance to a new belt. Now he is an advanced white belt -yellow is next.

The youth classes warming up.The white belts broke their first boards today! The boys were pretty excited (and impressed with themselves I am sure). Archer is standing with his new Tae Kwon Do friend Drake (in white).
In the promotion line in his new belt. He is helping Jeter, our friend who is 6, tie his belt.The reason Archer decided to start Tae Kwon Do is that his friend Henry (now an advanced blue belt) invited him several times and got Archer interested. They aren't in the same class - Henry is more advanced-but they still see each other at functions (well...and at school...). He has been friends with Henry since 1st grade. Love all these long-term friendships!
Archer sporting his new belt and showing off his first broken board.
Way to go Archer! We are very proud of you! Keep it up!


  1. That is super fantastic! You should have him autograph the boards ... you never know when they might be worth some money! :)

    Congratulations Archer ... keep it up!

  2. I'm going to stay out of Archer's way from now on! He could beat me up!!

    Congratulations Archer!
