Your 2019 Academy Award Winners

Every year the academy gives out awards in the following categories for Adult, Junior, Youth and Little Ninja students:

Student of the Year: this award is presented to the student who best reflects the spirit of Kung Fu. He, or she, is a true role model dedicated to furthering the art of Kung Fu through both training habits and attitude towards the art and fellow students.

Most Improved Student: This award is presented to the student who has shown the most significant improvement in their Kung Fu abilities over the past 12 months.

Most Dedicated Student: This award is presented to the student who gives that little extra to help the school, as well as his, or her, fellow students, throughout the year.

Most Improved Novice Student: This is the student who has shown the most significant improvement during their first few months of training.

Sigung Bob Schneider Memorial Award: This award is presented to the outstanding leadership team member. Sigung was always passionate about grooming future leaders.

Black Sash Instructor of the Year: This award is not necessarily awarded on an annual basis; only when it becomes apparent that one instructor, for a variety of reasons, raises a notch above the rest.

Congratulations to all!
