It was quite a weekend! We got it all – rain, sunshine, chilly nights, blood, sweat and tears. On the bank of the Klamath River in Northern California, thirteen brave karateka came together to test for their black belt. Surrounded by instructors, family, friends and guests all the way from the East Coast, these students persevered and proved up to the task. For four days and three nights, each student was challenged to participate fully and give the best possible at each task. From fording the mighty Klamath River, rough and tumble sparing, kata and self-defense demonstrations and glass-walking, everyone rose to the challenge and by the end of the weekend, all were successful. Not to be outdone, fourteen  students tested for under belts, bringing enthusiasm and a strong can do attitude! It was a proud moment for our dojo, indeed.

A big heartfelt thanks t
