Joe at Shindenkan Budo
Last night Joe earned a yellow stripe for his orange belt. This shows that he has achieved over half the requirements for yellow belt. Yellow belt is a very difficult belt to obtain, it requires over 25 skills to be learned and performed with a certain level of mastery.
Joe has been working very hard. Twice a week he trains one-on-one with Joel then attends the children's basic skills class and then the children's intermediate class. He gets tired but he loves this art and is enjoying it.
When he was presented with his stripe last night, Sensei mentioned that Joe has not been with them for very long but has progressed quickly. He mentioned that having Joel Sempai for a cousin helps this to be the situation. :)
