Mr. Kern passes his 5th degree black belt test

Earlier this summer, Mr. Kern tested for his 5th degree black belt at the 2018 World Championships in Little Rock, AR. He had to wait weeks for the results and he is pleased to share the news: He passed!

Mr. Gonzalez also passed his test for his 4th degree black belt! Congrats, sir!

A few photos from the testing day:

 Mr Moore and Mr. Kern in the testing ring along with over 50 others (top). Chief Master Jager tested for the rank of 9th degree black belt (left) as did my training instructor Master Blomquist passed his test for 7th degree! What a great memory to share and sense of accomplishment to bring back to our students!
