I am humbled by both Friday night and Saturday. I look out from the table and I see people who have put their heart and soul in all that they do and it has paid off. Students, I am proud of you and your accomplishments and I’m here to say every bit of your work is worth it. To those who tested on Friday and received their black belt for the first time…welcome to the brotherhood and sisterhood of martial artists dating back hundreds and thousands of years. Your hard work and commitment is and has paid off and you make the school proud. Your journey is just beginning. For those who received their first degree black belt…keep up your good work… you will now begin to understand things you never have before and we will share with you our knowledge in depth…you are the leaders students look up to and strive to be where you stand right now. For those who tested for their fourth degree…you have entered a new world of martial arts…one that transcends the physical aspects (although that is still a very strong component). I never doubted for a minute your marital arts future from day one. A perfect blend of high level martial arts ability with high level teaching ability…truly a rare find.
