First degree

We just came home from Alex’s black belt graduation ceremony. After about five years of hard work at Origin Martial Arts, he received his first-degree black belt and a pretty spiffy black gi.

He’s been attending two or three nights a week for all these years– quite a commitment, especially for someone as busy as he is lately. It’s been a lot of fun for him, and also very rewarding to finally achieve this. Nice job, Alex.
