January 28, 2009

Congratulations to Sterling and Debbie who both received their black belts last Wednesday. Debbie began taking classes from O Sensei Muntzing in the 1970's and after long years and hard work finally received what we all strive for! Sterling also has put in years of dedication and perseverance and got his belt just in time to serve a mission to Canada (spanish speaking).

I also want to extend a very deep congratulations to Sensei Ray who was advanced to the rank of 5th degree black belt. I'm extremely grateful to him for putting up with me for all these years. We all know how much he has dedicated to each one of us. This advancement was well deserved.

Thanks to OSensei Muntzing

OSensei Muntzing was able to join us after the black belt test on Wednesday. He shared with us his wisdom, as always. We are extremely grateful for him to take time to help us better ourselves. I'd like to encourage any brown belt (or higher) to make the effort to come next time he does. It's very eye opening to hear his thoughts on karate. (If you feel like you never know when he is going to come, Sensei Ray sends out an email to notify us. If he doesn't have your email address he can't get it to you. Send it to me (Sensei Kristi) and I will get it to him.)

Congratulations Sensei Donna and Sensei Selleck!

After years and years of hard work and dedication these two had the moment of a lifetime Wednesday night. Selleck and Donna both received their black belts. We congratulate them and want them to know how proud we are for their great accomplishment. They are now good beginners! Congratulations, you two!!

Brown Belts Galore

Fantastic class! I remember when a blue belt was considered a rare upper belt. I had 6 brown belts in my advanced class today and it was so much fun! We just worked black belt stuff, but it was nice. Sempai Selleck and Sempai Donna have their black belt test coming up next month so we're starting to cram! They're doing great!
