Bruce Reaches Godan

On April 6, 2019, Bruce became the first member of Odayaka Martial Arts to attain the rank of godan (5th degree black belt).  Below is a photo of sensei presenting Bruce with his certificate.  This comes after years of dedicated training and teaching and is certainly well deserved.  We all should thank Bruce for his help along our karate journey and congratulate him on his promotion.

Steve Earns Jukyu

On Saturday, March 23, Steve took his first test and got promoted to Jukyu.  He has worked diligently on all the material and it showed as he passed with fine marks.  The smile says it all.  Congratulations, Steve.

Augustus Passes Two-Tips

March 14 saw Augustus take his second test which he passed easily after all the hard work he’d done to get ready.  He even received a 9+ on one kihon which is a rare score for anyone.  Congratulations, Augustus.  Great going.

Autumn Earns Yellow-Stripe

On February 26th, Autumn took and passed her next test and now has a brilliant yellow stripe running along her belt.  She worked hard on all the requirements and showed that she knew exactly what she was doing.  Congratulations, Autumn.
