Congratulations to Samantha on passing her black belt test and being promoted to shodan, first degree black belt! Well deserved!
Samantha had her black belt test for the rank of shodan. During this hour-long test, she was required to do all techniques she’s been tested on up to this point, as well as an entirely new board of advanced black belt techniques. Subsequently, three attackers repeatedly went after her until told to stop and she had to defend herself.
Her test was graded by Profs. Tony Janovich, Janice Okamoto, Clive Guth, and George Arrington.
Congratulations to Kevin Sadeghian, who received his nidan, second degree black belt, and Kira, who received her ikkyu, 1st degree brown belt, last night. Well deserved!
