They might be small, but their strength and courage is not to be underestimated.

Vera Poole, from Fort St. James Family Taekwondo was thrilled to host the first Junior Dragons Skills test.

Children ages 3-6 yrs brought their best moves forward at Energy Connection Limited on Feb. 16.

“I’m so excited. This is the youngest group I’ve ever tested,” Poole said.

The first time participants completed a number of tasks as they ran, jumped punched, kicked and broke their way through plastic tiles.

Families and friends watched as the juniors displayed all of the hard work that they’ve practised in class.

Senior students also attended and helped their younger counterparts perform each assigned skill.

All junior participants were awarded stripes.

“Thank you to my senior students and parents for all of your support today. I’m very proud of the Junior Dragons,” Poole said.
