Meet Our Team
My name is Pastor Larry Wong; my qualifications are that I hold the rank of second degree black belt in the American Tae Kwon Do system. I am a TKO (Texas Karate Organization) State Champion in Weapons and Breaking and a runner up World Champion. I have studied under and have the support of my teacher and friend Master Wayne Nguyen, a 7th degree black belt.
Master Nguyen is the owner and founder of the TKO and is a World Champion in both fighting and forms. Master Nguyen also works in F.B.I.S.D. instructing for the Chuck Norris “Kick Start” program, where the martial arts are taught to encourage students to avoid participation in gangs, choose drug free lifestyles and to remain in school. He also starred with Mr. Norris in the movie Side Kicks.
Levels of Progression
In order to progress to the next belt level, students must earn six stripes on their current belt. The stripe system was developed to help make sure the student succeeds not just in karate, but also at home, school, and in their professional life. Stripes are a great way to build self-esteem as well as a positive attitude.
At each belt, this helps motivate the student to learn their curriculum. It also helps the instructor know which areas the student may need help in.
Black Stripe # 1 – Technical kicks and combinations
Black Stripe # 2 – Forms
Black Stripe # 3 – Sparring or sparring Drills
Personal Development Stripes
Red Stripe (Attitude) – This is a class attitude stripe. The instructor will give a student this stripe when they show great attitude in class or significant improvement in a certain skill.
White Stripe – Adult (Goal Setting) / Student (Academic) – This stripe is given when an adult turns in a “Goal Sheet.” At times, the difference between whether a goal is accomplished or not can be as simple as writing it down. The goals can be anything that help improve your life. Anything from cleaning a certain room to setting professional goals. Younger students are to bring their latest report card or progress report.
Blue Stripe – Adult (Physical) / Student (Home) – The physical stripe is given at the instructor’s discretion. As long as a student shows physical improvement in class, he/she will be rewarded a stripe. The home stripe is intended for the younger students to make sure their attitude at home is excellent. A note is needed for the home stripe.
After a student has received all 6 stripes (3 black and 1 each red, white, & blue) and completed the minimum number of classes, he/she is ready for a new belt.
