Honored to Announce

I am truly honored to announce the promotions of Allen Monroe and Aleksi Lee. Their sustained hard work and dedication has earned them the rank of shodan. I wish I could say things are easier from now on but quite the opposite, we now expect more from them with regard to running the club and contributing to judo.
Their promotions were definitely deserved as they both exemplify what a shodan should be.

Holiday Party: The Aftermath

I wanted to thank everyone for coming to the party Saturday. I enjoyed getting a chance to connect with everyone off the mat. We always workout together, but it is nice to let everyone showcase their non-judo personalities.
Now I just need a way to incorporate pushups into the event!

I was also very pleased to get an opportunity to present Elijah Lopez with his much deserved promotion to White/Yellow belt. Hopefully we will see him again at practice soon.
