Mr. and Mrs. Malbraaten stand at the ready for the first Midwest Haidong Gumdo fall seminar.
I didn’t hear a single complaint that they got to line up in the middle instead of the front!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Malbraaten!  This weekend they attended the first Midwest Haidong Gumdo fall testing seminar!  Our school is small, just getting started, and it was a great treat to train and socialize with our ever-expanding regional community!

It was great to have so many regional masters helping to lead, teach, and encourage everyone’s students, and the sam dans who helped lead and administer the testing!

Our own Mr. Greg Malbraaten and Mrs. Katie Malbraaten lined up and completed their tests for 1st gup, red-stripe belt.  (That means that their next promotion will be for black belt, and they have six months before their first chance to take that first step into a larger world…)

Master Frankovich introduced the region to the new hickory stick muggeom that we will be using for sparring drill practice, and we all lined up to give them a try!


Thanks go out once again to Master Frankovich and his White Tiger Martial Arts family for hosting and organizing the event!  It was a blast and the Nerd Posse is already looking forward to the next one!
