Shodan Grading Success
It is with great pleasure that we announce the successful completion of the Daito-ryu Shodan test by study Group Facilitator Grant Periott. The test was held at the Sumiyoshi Taisha in Osaka Japan at the Budokan located within the grounds of the 1800 year old Shrine. Kawabe Takeshi shihan presided over the grading.
The test took place after a grueling 8 day long training trip in Osaka Japan where Dicker sensei and Grant practiced up to six hours a day. Congratulations – Gambatte!
