The last of summer tests promoted Alex Henderson of Glenwood Springs to third gup red belt and Zack Loter of Silt to second gup red belt. This was an advanced skills test that demonstrates a variety of areas including forms, one- and three-step sparring, freestyle sparring, self-defense, kicking, striking and blocking skills. Students ended the test with a board-breaking demonstration. The red belt is the stepping stone for these students on their way to the black belt test.
