Recent Promotions

Promoting students is always my favorite part of teaching judo.
This time it was particularly memorable for two reasons.
First, this was the first set of promotions after the pandemic – these promotions had been waiting for more than a year. Second, three of these promotions are for shodan and above and these are always special as they represent milestones in the development of one’s judo.
