7th Degree Black Belt Senior Master Ken Church instructs students at Armstrong’s Taekwondo on self-defense and gun-defense.

Armstrong’s Taekwondo in Clinton celebrated its one-year anniversary with a pair of high-esteemed guests from the martial arts world, seventh-degree black belt Senior Master Ken Church and fifth-degree black belt Patricia Church from San Diego.

It was a two-day celebration which began with a student appreciation workout. After working with each student, Church opened the doors to the South Whidbey community by offering a free, three-hour self-defense and gun-defense class.

The class had over 20 members from the community. One of the students, Gary Richard Hattal, spoke highly of the class.

“Had a great time there with all the wonderful, supportive energy,” he said, in a news release. “I really appreciated meeting Mr. and Mrs. Church. This school will be an increasingly important part of our community on many levels.”
