The 2016 State Championships was a great success for our Shiba TKD family. We took more than 30 students and we brought home more than 30 gold medals. We are not about the medals, however. We focus on helping our students overcome their personal obstacles and fears. We help them to become the best that they can personally be by helping them to be better than they were the day before. Choosing to compete and get in front of the judges is worth 6 months of classes. We require one competition prior to black belt but other than that, competing is optional at our school. Shiba TKD.
