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.
