Dynamic Duo Reign At Arnold Sports Festival

Brooklyn Center residents, Mark and Sarah Wurdeman, placed first and/or second in every event that they competed in during the Arnold Sports Festival 2018 held in Columbus, OH.

The international event hosted several hundred competitors in over 40 martial arts divisions. Mark and Sarah, students in Taekwondo (Korean Karate) and Haidong Gumdo (Korean sword) at White Tiger Martial Arts, headquartered in Fridley. Both are senior students and instructors there.

Mark placed first in all four divisions that he competed – Tang Soo Do forms, Traditional Taekwondo forms, Weapons and Target cutting. Sarah had the misfortune of competing against Mark in three of the four divisions and against black belt ladies in another. Sarah will test for her black belt in Taekwondo in May 2018.

White Tiger Martial Arts focuses on the personal development of each student and uses tournaments as a way to challenge knowledge/understanding plus provide an opportunity to spend time with like-minded martial artists.

If you don’t make awareness part of everything that you do, you will fall prey to the skills of those who mean you harm. This is from a simple pickpocket to an assailant wanting to harm you. Be Batman and prepare for all options that you can conceive!

Don’t leave things out! Make sure that you’re working to make sure that you’re safe and in control of what you can. Even the mightiest can be corrupted!
