Congratulations on passing your Shodan!

Congratulations to Mannen Tipping on passing her Shodan black belt grading on Saturday after having to retake her kata. She showed the true spirit of karate by not giving in after her initial grading disappointment but training harder and returning to retake her grading and gaining a well deserved pass.
