I am happy to announce some recent promotions! Yesterday we promoted little Molly to Yellow, congratulations Molly! Monday night we had a long awaited rank test after which, Jake Fredette was promoted to Purple and Chris Davis to Nikyu-second brown! And last but not least, on Saturday was a pretty big day for Judo at Checkmate where Wendy Mierop was promoted to Green, Matt Lawton was promoted to Brown and Chip Arnold was promoted to Shodan after many, many years of training!
Watching people grow and progress is one of the most rewarding parts of what we do and it makes me feel so fortunate to witness the growth. Congratulations to everyone and thanks to all ukes without whom no one would get anywhere!
