Great job to our newest Black Belts! You had an amazing test despite all the restrictions such as Zoom classes for several months and training so much at home. Everyone did a great job showing your skills and really earned the rank of First and Second Dan Black Belt. The day after the test we welcomed a limited number of family and guests to the formal Awards Ceremony to officially present each student with a certificate and Belt that Master Graves personally tied on. A great way to honor all your hard work and dedication.
