Sixteen-year-old Elayna Simon, daughter of Mike and Dr. Janette Simon of Guttenberg, recently took a three-hour test. “And that was just the physical part,” said Simon, who has been practicing Tang Soo Do since she was four years old. She earned her black belt in April after taking an oral exam, writing a 2000-word essay, sparring against two black belts simultaneously and completing a four-way board break. “I broke one with my hand, and then I broke one with my foot. Then I turned around and broke one with my hand again, and then the last one I broke two boards at the same time with a kick,” she told The Press.
