It is my pleasure to announce that as a result of a recent evaluation Mr. Bill Handren was promoted to go-dan in Goju-Ryu Karate-Do.
As is typical for promotions, Mr. Bill was assessed on technical skill, physical ability, general knowledge, length of time in, and overall attitude. A significant requirement at this level, however, is meaningful contribution to the organization. Mr. Bill has served the GKK as Newsletter Editor for about eight years and has elevated our Newsletter to a level of quality never before attained. Congratulations to Mr. Bill Handren on this well deserved recognition.
