ELKHART — Steve Travis will celebrate his promotion to 9th-degree black belt during a public open house Friday, Dec. 13.

The event will take place from 7-8 p.m. at Steve’s Gym, 1120 W. Bristol Street. The public is invited to attend.

Travis, one of the state’s most accomplished athletes and former president of the North American Tae Kwon Do Association, has been competing for 43 years and is a decorated competitor and instructor.

It takes athletes 15-20 years to accomplish 5th-degree level. A 9th-degree honor recognizes a lifetime of service and skill.
