Keep up the good work guys!  Very proud of you for rocking it out!

Remember - your Saturday training COUNTS towards your One-Step Questions.  If you finish doing Taeguek and Palchugi Yuk along with Chil, Pal and Koryo two more times today you can check off TWO of your "practice your forms" times for the week.  You did requirements testing today - that counts too!
