FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Two Fort St. John Red Dragon Martial Arts Taekwondo students completed their formal testing to receive poom junior black belts over the weekend.

12-year-old Conor Soule and 10-year-old Cade Hackman have been training with Red Dragon for over six years to achieve the feat. The formal testing included breaking different boards, showcasing skills learned, and meditation.

“These two are both talented, so they were a good representation in what we hope to achieve in martial artists at that age,” said Master Ben Marsh.
