CONGRATULATIONS to Thomas Pham and Justin Nguyen for achieving their San Dan; third degree (3rd) Black belt ! Both Thomas and Justin’s Shorinji Kempo studies stems from their discipline of overcoming weakness, maintaining peace and living by helping others. Achieving this auspicious rank gives a great sense of accomplishment and means to live each day with confidence. Being able to stay focused for the many years readily transfers to the students work ethic outside of Shorinji Kempo. Black belt students continue to develop both their physical/mental skills to become responsible members of society. Experience change, Lead by example and achieve the impossible as “EFFORT NEVER LIES” !!!
