Congratulations Dean and Mike on receiving your Shodan (1st degree) rank!
Dean completed his promotion yesterday morning with a spirited two hours of fighting Senior Seido Blackbelts and was awarded his blackbelt by Kaicho. After being away for quite a few years, Mike completed two years of training in order to be rewarded by Kaicho with his original blackbelt which he received back in 1992. Please be sure to congratulate them when you see them at the dojo.
Congratulations Kyoshi Lauren!
Sensei Lauren has completed her promotion to 5th Degree Black Belt.
