In January 2016, three KIMAA Yudansha received their new black belts. These promotions were awarded following the grading in November 2015. These new grades include:
- Sensei Ben Ng (3rd Dan)
- Sensei Donald Cheong (3rd Dan)
- Sempai Wally Gray (2nd Dan)
As part of his grading, Sensei Don wrote an essay on the importance of visual focus in Karate. Shihan Lipman encourages all students to read it.
Congratulations to these three black belts on their new grades.
