Black Belt testing here in Kalamazoo on the 30th of June 2012 was a great success! Mike McNamara, Mark Kenney Sr., Catalina Kenney from Master Floyd Soo’s club; and Joe Bennett from our club all tested together and were promoted together. All four did a great job and should be proud of themselves.

Master March’s All Day Free-Sparring was a great success. There were over two dozen participants from all over the State of Michigan. A good time was had by all, and the icing on the cake was that everyone had a chance to “tweak” their sparring skills. Thanks go out to all the participants!
