July 17, 2010 Color Belt Test
Sheridan, Wyoming

Twenty-one candidates lined up at the July Wyoming Color Belt Test at the Sheridan YMCA.
The day started out with Mr. Johnson's M and M Demo Team putting on a great show. They've been working hard and it showed! It looks like they have a really good time along with all the hard work.
As soon as the M and M Team was finished, the testing got underway. From pee-wees to adults, it was a very good testing. The breaking in particular was excellent!
Congratulations to all who participated!
