Dr. Cyril Ernest - Black Belt in TAE KWAN DO
|Benedictine Dr. Cyril Ernest who was the opening Batting partner of Old Ben Ranjit Fernando at college and also who represented the country at Cricket has been awarded the Black Belt in TAE KWAN DO in the USA.|
“Getting a Black Belt is tough enough but to get it at the age of 70 is quite an achievement.
Apart from his aggressive batting, I have never seen Cyril other than being most calm and quiet. So this does surprise me. Knowing his ambition he may become a GRANDMASTER before 100.” Quote from Old Ben Ranjit Fernando
“I am truly honoured and at the same time somewhat embarassed at all the congratulatory messages received. Thank you. This was one of the items left on my "bucket list" to be done before I was too old to be able to achieve it. It was a hard grind over a period of 3 years going for regular training sessions whether I felt well or not and despite some injuries sustained during sparring I was able to finally do it one month short of my 70th Birthday. Join a Tae Kwon Do class in your neighborhood and train hard and you will be able to do the same. It is all a matter of focusing on your goal and be persistent.” Quote from Old Ben Dr. Cyril Ernest.
“Was greatly impressed with what you have achieved in life, not only as a Doctor, but also as a great sportsman and now as a black belt at this stage of your life.” Quote from Old Ben Franklyn Holsinger
