Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts Demo at the Mountain Sports Festival

Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts Participates in 2018 Mountain Sports Festival

Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts Demo at the Mountain Sports Festival

Practitioners of all belt ranks came out in support of the Mountain Sports Festival

Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts was invited once again, this Memorial Day Weekend 2018, to be a prominent participant in the Mountain Sports Festival. It was a wet weekend, but the event was well-attended by local families who stayed close to home over the holiday weekend.

In spite of the rain, and even though Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts was closed for the holiday weekend, our students came out in large numbers for the event. We performed 4 separate onsite demonstrations, providing fun family entertainment for the diverse and engaged crowd. Our students enjoyed several great public demonstration opportunities, as well as multiple class credits through this extra dimension of their practice – all while helping to make the 2018 Mountain Sports Festival all the more fun for all in attendance.

Stay tuned for more demonstration opportunities, and enjoy the associated photos from this year’s event. Special thanks from Masters Morris and Dickinson to all students and staff who participated!

Asheville Sun Soo Sponsor - The Bair Foundation

Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts Thanks The Bair Foundation for Sponsoring Our In-House Tournament and Our 2018 April Testing Event

Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts is excited to welcome The Bair Foundation as the sponsor of our 2018 Annual In-House Tournament and our 2018 April Belt Rank Testing event. We appreciate the work they do in the community and around the country, and are grateful to Rob Edmonson – Asheville Sun Soo practitioner and parent – for facilitating this partnership.

The Bair Foundation is a national non-profit foster care agency with offices located throughout the United States, and was founded by Bill Bair. “Papa Bair” wanted to create an organization to provide quality care and services that restore and empower children, youth and families who are in crisis. The Bair Foundation’s headquarters remain in the small town of New Wilmington, PA where it began in 1967, but has grown and now provides a continuum of care and services with over 30 offices in 9 states across the country; Pennsylvania, Ohio, North & South Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico. They provide a variety of services for children facing challenges in their current home situation, including foster care placement, foster-to-adoption placement, kinship care services, family services, behavioral health services, and independent living skills training.

Rob is the Intake Coordinator for the Asheville office. His job includes training new families and matching kids with those families. He loves all parts of the job, but especially enjoys bringing kids to their new foster homes where they have the opportunity to see what an excellent home situation looks like.

Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts is proud of our commitment to excellence and inclusion. The Bair Foundation seeks families with precisely those values, and hopes that by bringing awareness of the work being done by The Bair Foundation to Asheville Sun Soo families, more interested and eligible households will become a part of the Bair family, and that some of these children might also become members of the Sun Soo family – an experience Rob hopes will provide needed consistency and structure in their lives.
