Congratulations to Our New Black Belts and Higher Degrees
Class of 2020
To say that this year of training for our Black Belt Class of 2020 was challenging and stressful would be a huge understatement. Covid-19 closed our Dojo’s for three months and our members had the choice of taking time off or following through and learning and reviewing their karate curriculum through our online classes. It sure was not easy. Staying motivated and persevering through some tough times has made this year’s Black Belt Grading even more special to us and our students.
We have all learned some amazing life lessons this year. This was not an easy journey. YOU NEVER GAVE UP!
We look forward to Saturday, December 5th when our younger Brown belts will receive their Junior Black Belts and our Adult Brown Belts will receive their Shodan degree. We have numerous Black Belts receiving higher degrees and some Junior Black Belts receiving their Adult Black Belts. Congratulations again on not just this year of training, but all the years and classes and efforts and hard work put in to receive this prestigious honor. Not many people make it this far. It is a testament to your focus, discipline and dedication to the martial arts. Shihan and your Instructors and all your fellow Black Belts are super proud of all of you!
