August 2013 Black Sash Test participants at US Martial Arts Academy, Ltd., Timonium, Maryland

Today, August 22, 2013, we welcome our four newest Black Sashes:

  • Stephanie Barnaba
  • Katie Beahn
  • Anna Jensen
  • Adam Snyder

After completing nine of their ten Tien Shan Pai forms, the candidates choreographed and performed martial arts  defense skits, broke their boards, and gave a short speech.

As is our custom, dried and canned goods were collected as the price of admission.  The food collected will be donated to a local food bank.
