Sidekicks is ready to kick 2009 into gear with the Black Belt Extravaganza and Color Belt Testing on January 28, 29, 30, and 31.


Testing for color belts will be held at 6:30 on Wednesday January 28th for Phase 1 students; Thursday January 29th for Phase 2 students; and Friday January 30th for Phase 3 students. Little Dragons will test at 5:30 on Thursday January 29th. Then, on Saturday January 31, 2009 the entire Sidekicks family, both FishHawk and New Tampa, will come together for the Black Belt testing and Promotion Celebration in what we’re calling “The Black Belt Extravaganza.”


We are very excited about this because in addition to the testing we are preparing some demonstrations as well as inviting people who are very special to the Sidekicks program, specifically Master Robert Sparks and Master Jack Elmore. Master Sparks is Master Cabrera’s original instructor in Taekwon-Do and is a 7th degree black belt. Master Elmore is a 7th degree black belt in Tang Soo Do and is Master Cabrera’s best friend.


This is an opportunity for everyone to come together as a family and see what we’re all striving for as we watch our black belts test for new belts. Among those testing are Mr. Alex Lapeiretta for 3rd Degree and Mr. Alfred Alonzo for 1st Degree. At Sidekicks, we’re glad to have such outstanding people interact with our students everyday and look forward to our students showing their support and getting a gimse at what black belt excellence is all about.


The Black Belt Testing and Extravaganza will begin on the 31st with the opening ceremonies and the black belt testing, followed by demonstrations and then promotions of color belts and black belts to their new ranks.


We know that families have a lot going on during weekends, which is why we are usually very accomadating when students need to reschedule their testing and hold a private one. However, for this particular event, when it comes down to a choice between one event or the Extravaganza we ask that you support your Sidekicks family and attend this one.


We will be grilling out hamburgers, hotdogs and other concessions in case you get hungry.


The Extravaganza will be held at Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Lithia, FL.
