On September 23rd we will be demonstrating at the Gateway Church for the Sadsbury Township Tricentennial Community Day. The township managers praised last year's demonstration as very popular with the visitors and we are excited to have the opportunity to return. The previous team to demonstrate was even featured in the Daily Local.

We will have a few Saturday classes that I will announce to prepare for the event. During the Community Day we will also be having a bake sale to fundraise for the International Team heading to Cardiff, Wales.

2017 Spring Black Belt Test

The black belt testing was held this past Saturday, June 10th. There were a total of sixty testing candidates testing for 1st degree black belt and higher. The Coatesville gym sent three students, Ms. Valerie Vilbert for 2nd dan, Kaleena Tynes for 1st dan, and Cole Plant for 1st dan. All three did a great job during the entirety of the test. Kaleena was the runner up for the coveted black belt award, barely missing out for the promotion on the spot which goes to the top performing red belt at the test.
