Dan started TKD to keep in shape. But, Dan soon found that TKD is a challenge and he accepted the challege. Dan has gone through the ranks (manay colored belts) while attending Kansas State University. This was not a class, but an outside activity. His instructor is Master Moore who has become a life-long friend.

When Dan sets his mind to achieve someting, he does it!

Dan is going to kick the board and break it smithereens. Later on, he will do the same with his hand, but the camera was not fast enough to get the picuture.

Dan says he did OK and his instructor agreed.
A good time was had by all at Bennigan's in Topeka. Uncle Jim joined us for a fine lunch.
