4th Degree Graduation Thank You!
I hope everyone had a fantastic time at graduation Friday night. I was very pleased with everyone’s performance — from the opening demo team routine to the final junior black belt performance. YOU ALL ROCKED!!
Thank you very much to Miss Mackenzie, Kathy Meadows, my awesome staff and all of the students and families that helped put me in the hot seat on stage to celebrate the achievement of my fourth degree black belt and the success of Alpha Martial Arts. The sword is beautiful and the cards that I received from students and parents are awesome. THANK YOU!
I owe a big part of my success to the students and families that have supported my efforts in Seattle over the last 5 years. Thank you for investing your time and effort as my students. I am privileged to be a part of your life.
Congratulations to everyone who passed their belt exams at the end of September! If you did not receive your new belt at graduation you will receive it at the school this week before or after your class.
