Isshin-ryu Karate-do Shodan Test

James Montgomery & Raul Jennings tested for Shodan on Sunday, September 29, 2019. Both James and Raul are over 60 years old.

In attendance at the testing, in addition to many of our kids and adult students were Senseis John & Cindy Ingram, as well as Sensei Rob Freitag and Gina Dennis. They coordinated their visit around attending the testing.
Both James and Raul performed well. I believe that all in attendance were impressed at their skills, balance, and stamina. Their hard work, and commitment have also been a personal inspiration for myself and many other members of our dojo. Congratulations on your accomplishment and good luck to your continued training in the life-long journey in the martial arts.
On behalf of myself, Bill Williams and all at the New York Seibukan, I want to thank Senseis John, Cindy, Rob, & Gina for the great visit. The hard training, quality teaching, and continued support of all we do is greatly appreciated. Looking forward to seeing you again in a few weeks for the 2019 WUIKA/Tokushinryu Gasshuku & Shiai.
Great pictures taken by Mario and Benny. Thanks so much!
