On the 5th of September 2015, members from our region gathered at The University of North Alabama, Florence, for what is always a day of intense competition and amazing comradery.
After a welcome from Regional Director, Master Miller and our own Grandmaster Strong, there were several black belt presentations, most notably the promotion of Dean Click and Morgan Strong to Sah Dan. Other notable presentations included Daniel Munger and Kathrine Robinson receiving the annual scholarships from the regional scholarship fund.
Then, after an exciting creativity demonstration by Young’s Tang Soo Do, competition began. The roar of the championship was great, but as the “calls” and “breaks” came to a calm, we had six winners to be announced. Placing as this year’s Regional Champions are Aaron Tucker, Ola Myszka, Brandon Crowder, Shelby Rogers, Stephanie Jones, and Seth Porter.
Here’s to another great championship this September in New Olreans!
