EDHSC Karate Club Students Excel in Rank Examinations and Academics
The EDHSC Karate Club held rank examinations for students on March 19th, and all students succeeded in the areas of physical fitness, kata (forms), and self defense to earn their next rank. All in all there were five 9th Kyu (red belt), two 8th Kyu (orange belt), and four 7thKyu (yellow belt) awarded. The students trained very hard for their exams, and their hard work paid off.
In addition to their success in the dojo, all five students that attend William Brooks Elementary School, and are eligible by age, have received the Golden Bear Award (Honor Roll) this school year. Four of the five achieved this award in the last session. Furthermore, two students were presented with special awards by their classmates, one for good sportsmanship, and another for outstanding effort.

The Top Ranked Sensei in the World is 9th Degree Black Belt Shihan Hashimoto of Osaka, Japan (pictured at left), and the Top Ranked Sensei in the USA, President of Hayashi-Ha USA, 8th Degree Black Belt Shihan Akio Minakami of Seattle, WA (pictured at right).
Sensei Noss was very honored to spend considerable time with Shihan Hashimoto and Shihan Minakami over a three day period.
