Thoroughbred Taekwon-do conducted it’s annual Black Belt examinations yesterday in Melton, Victoria. we welcome a new thoroughbred Black Belt and some advanced degrees.
It was a very historic day for the club with it most senior internal Black Belt promotion since its formation in 1994.
Balwyn instructor Justin Chin was promoted to 6th Degree Black Belt after a vigorous testing regime. The test included all black belt patterns, various types of sparring, self defense, breaking and theory.
The promotion makes Justin the most senior Thoroughbred Taekwon-Do Black Belt outright, under the school’s founder and director, Master Michael Muleta.
Justin has be a wonderful leader of the school, setting a great example of loyalty and selfless contribution for close to 20 years.
Also promoted was his younger brother, and branch assistant, Corey Chin. Corey was promoted to 5th Degree Black Belt.
It sets up a very unique family combination of 3 Thoroughbred Taekwon-Do Black belts, Justin 6th Degree, Jeremy 5th Degree and now Corey 5th Degree. Master Muleta fondly refers to them as the Chin Dynasty.
Just as significant is that the brothers have spent close to 20 years in the same school. This is certainly a rare quality in today’s organization hopping culture.
Anna Blake was promoted to 2nd Degree Black Belt along with John Vos promoted to 1st Degree.
We welcome John to the Thoroughbred Taekwon-Do Black Belt club.
