This past Saturday, January 14, nine of our Deputy Belts tested and were promoted to 1st Degree Black Belt along with one person being promoted to 2nd Degree Black Belt. The newest 1st Degree Black Belts black belts are: Rahul Iyer, Laith Almashat, Seth Whiteaker, Jack Goedecke, Ricky Jones, Sara Catalina Pettit, Giovanny Crystofer Martinez, Alejandra Frank, and Jonathan Rogas. Aaron Frank is our newest 2nd Degree Black Belt. The testing was long and difficult but everyone did an awesome job! I could not be more proud or honored to elevate you all to your new, deserved, levels.
