Congratulations to everyone who also got a stripe on their belt this week.
Your commitment to an activity that at times, can be unforgiving and relentless is both inspiring and life-changing. You have achieved a big milestone on your martial arts journey and I commend you for it.
Anyone who has passed through your current grade will tell you, every belt is but a moment in time and you have a short period of time between grades, so enjoy your moment and your hard-earned accomplishment. As your instructor, it’s an honour to watch you develop and grow in your skills, character and strengths, see you on the mats in 2022.
