Springfield Goju-Ryu Karate-Do Kyokai had a couple of promotions on December 14th. Sensei Kim Barrington promoted Deb Crawford to 1st Kyu and Patric Crawford to 3rd Kyu.. Patric is showing improvement and has been putting forth more effort as he continues his training. Deb is continually working to improve her skills. She works very hard , especially when teaching the other students. Deb knows that the next step will require more work. We hope she will continue on this path of learning and teaching. We congratulate each of them.
