Kicking it in the park

Parker Academy of Martial Arts students take it to the next level

Posted

Nearly 300 people assembled in Hidden River Park on July 8 to watch students at the Parker Academy of Martial Arts test for their belts, rewarding themselves afterward with shaved ice and an old-fashioned water balloon fight.

“I’ve gone to PAMA in the Park every year and it’s always a blast,” said Carrie Luft, who participated in the day’s activities. “It’s family friendly and always a fun time.”

Academy students, ranging in age from 3 to 53 years old, demonstrated taekwondo skills to attain their next level belts while friends and family looked on at the event.

After testing finished, the academy’s demonstration team performed an exhibition and students from all the belt ranks played a game of soccer. Other activities included a dunk tank, a bounce house, snow cones from Kona Ice and a photo booth, and the afternoon closed with a massive water balloon fight.
