Over the next week, we will be posting several videos of Master Pearson’s and Master Humbel’s Examinations. The video below is the One Step section of Master Pearson’s 7th Dan exam:
Sensei Gardner just forwarded us the video he took of Master Pearson’s and Master Humbel’s exam. He only recorded a very small portion of the exam, so we thought we would put together a short “Trailer” with the footage.
Master Pearson and Master Humbel both tested for their next rank in Taekwondo on Friday, April 26th. The exam was conducted by Grandmaster Kyongwon Ahn. Grandmaster Randolph Smith Sr., Grandmaster August O’Neal, Grandmaster Kim Limes and Grandmaster James Beasley were at the examination table with Grandmaster Ahn and acted as graders. Master Pearson was awarded the rank of 7th Dan and Master Humbel was awarded the rank of 6th Dan. Video of the examination will be posted by the end of the week.
