Soke & Higuchi Sensei arrived in Sydney on Tuesday after a spending a few days teaching in the Blue Mountains.
What a great way to kick off their time in Sydney with some special grading presentations.
Congratulations Michael Noonan Sensei on the presentation of your Kyoshi certificate. As the only Australian ever in Chito-Ryu to grade to this level (so far), his ongoing commitment to his personal training along with playing a key role in the growth & development of Chito-Ryu both in Australia and around the world is truly an inspiration to all that follow in his footsteps.
Also congratulations to both Stephen Grubmier & Ray Ng on the presentation of your shodan & jun-shidoin certificates. We know that you both have a very strong passion for Chito-Ryu and will continue to be great role models as you both step more deeply into leadership roles in the dojo.
