Nate B Shodan Jujitsu Belt Test Photos

Nate was suprised by his Shodan (1st degree black) belt test during Prof. Dave Castoldi’s Jujitsu Clinic on Nov 7th, 2009. Congratulations Nate! Here are some photos.

Nate tested in front of 6 black belts and more than 30 Checkmate students at the clinic. He worked the self defense situations in his standard relaxed and controlled manner, with brief interludes of 100% violence.

Check out the pics, at the end, of Sempai Steve contratulating Nate twice; with an o-goshi and a koshi-garuma. I think there’ll be a Nate sized dent in the mat for a couple months.
