Friday’s Faces from the Past: The Sho Dan
Eight years ago this month in January 2008, my son Nicholas was promoted to Sho Dan (Shodan) – first degree black belt – in Isshin Ryu karate.
Nicholas was nine years old when he started practising the Okinawan-style karate in the summer of 2001.
He poses here with his Sensei (Norm) after his grading at the Dojo.
