May 8th, 2010--Johnson's TaeKwonDo owners and instructors, Bryson and Melissa Johnson performed at the Karate Kid Challenge at Six Flags in Largo, MD on Saturday with their students Benjamin Pham and Marissa Jenkins. Ben and Marissa are both instructors at the Johnson's Martial Arts school in the Cary, Apex, and Morrisville area. They are e 3rd Degree Black Belts. Performing in this type of setting was new to them, but they did a great job and are ready for the next challenge!
We arrived Friday night in Largo at the Hampton Inn and did not hesitate to get some extra training in using the hallway outside of our rooms. We woke up extra early on Saturday so that we could be at the park to register at 7am. We realized that we were the only representation from North Carolina at the event. We got registered and went up at 1o am to perform our martial arts routines synchronized to music from the new Karate Kid Soundtrack. We had a break and then went up to perform a karate demonstration at 2 p.m. in front of a large crowd. At 6 p.m. that night, we received our awards and got a chance to see some nice x-treme moves and break dancing. It was a long day, but it was time to make the 5 hour drive home. We got into Cary, North Carolina at around midnight. We were tired, but were able to experience something that we will talk about for a long time from now.
