|Success 5 out of 5|
In Osaka adults only need 3 shiai wins to get a black belt so as we only had one chance at it Chris, Henry, Igor and Vladimir needed to win 3 in a row (I only needed 2 as I had wins from 2012). We all succeeded.
Thanks to Matsuura Sensei of Daishen club for enrolling us and Brian Shaw for helping us out on the day. I won one fight by Wazari (taking it easy after I knew I was up)
and one fight by ippon Tomonage.
|The rewards of success.|
