Wow, we had two amazing Black Belt tests last week! The tests were presided over by my instructor, former British, European and World Kickboxing Champion Master Rafael Nieto.
The first test took place last Thursday the 3rd. Congratulations to Senseis Vinod Joseph, Alaa Al-Alawi and Faris Algosaibi (my brother) for getting their second degree (2nd Dan) Black Belts! You guys did a fantastic job and I’m very proud of you! Master Rafael was very impressed with their standards and had no hesitation of passing them.
The second test was for younger students and took place on Saturday the 5th. Congrats go to Nouf Al-Khan, Abdulrahman Al-Khan, Dina El-Masri, Khalifa Al-Khalifa, Essa Shamlan, Mohammed Al-Qassimi, Isa Al-Khalifa, Junaid Mahmood, and Sultan Mashood! Again, a really fantastic job! Well done guys. I’m so proud of you!
Special thanks to Sensei Vinod Joseph for his great effort in preparing all of our Youth students for their Black Belt test. He was very worried about them and he’s extremely proud of their achievements. Thanks Vinod and well done and again guys!
