Springfield, Oregon Black Belt Test: Drew Morgan Promoted to 1st Dan

Congratulations to Drew Morgan who successfully completed his 1st Dan test on May 31, 2008 in Springfield, Oregon. According to Master Barbero, Drew demonstrated excellent single hand techniques, pressure points, and defense using a rope. Previously Mr. Morgan also demonstrated 2:1 defenses with clear balance and strong technique.

Drew has been studying Sakidokwan Hapkido since 2001, and has previous experience from the University of Indiana. Mr. Morgan will soon be relocating to Cleveland Ohio so if in the area look him up to have a great workout.

This latest test follows Mr. Brian Peterson’s successful black belt demonstration on April 4th, 2008. Brian demonstrated strong technique using pressure points, empty hands and tan-bong. Sparring and a self-defense Round Robin rounded out the test with an excellent sacrifice throw at the end.

Brian has been studying Sakidokwan Hapkido since 2002 and shows clear understanding of the system, concepts and techniques.
