Genevieve Oslick Achieves Black Belt Status

On Saturday, June 29, 2019 Genevieve Oslick age 10, successfully tested and achieved the status of Tae Kwon Do Black Belt. Tae Kwon Do in Korean terms is defined as kicking, punching, the way of life. Martial Arts were developed thousands of years ago as a form of self-defense. Tae Kwon Do originated in Korea. In terms of technique, Tae Kwon Do emphasizes kicks more than the other martial arts, making it ideal for improving balance, flexibility and endurance.

Genevieve began her road to Black Belt as a seven year old at Tiger Lees World Class Tae Kwon Do School in Parker, CO. Over the course of her three year training, she learned the disciplines of focus, goal setting, perseverance and respect needed to become a Black Belt. Tae Kwon Do students are taught to be humble, courteous and respectful along with being careful about where and when they practice their self-defense skills.

There are 11 belts which must be perfected before earning Black Belt status. Each belt requires a different form and different Korean terms. To achieve Black Belt status Genevieve perfected each form and is able to respond in the Korean language.

Having achieved Black Belt status Genevieve will receive a signed certificate from the National Federation of Tae Kwon Do in South Korea and her name will be forever etched in their books.
Genevieve’s brother Alexander (7) is also a student of Master Lee. And he has achieved a
double black stripe belt.

Genevieve and Alexander are the children of Kevin & Michelle Oslick of Parker and the grandchildren of GCU National Director John Oslick and his wife MaryEllen Oslick.

They are a 100% GCU family.
