Saturday, August 20, 2022 was an awesome day at our dojo. This young man was scheduled to test for his Shodan on 3/26/2020…. We all know the world shut down on 3/20/2020. Words can not express how proud we are of him for pushing through disappointment and then returning to complete.
The last photo is at Rare ole Times on Patterson Avenue.
