Taekwondo is an important tradition for the whole Blauer family.

Melanie and Jake Blauer have black belts, as do three of their four children. The fourth, their youngest, is currently training to earn one.

They started practicing martial arts in their former home town of Boise. When they moved to Pullman after Jake Blauer was hired by Washington State University, that meant saying goodbye to their taekwondo instructors and school.
