White Belt Promotions – August 8, 2006
Tonight the Sapulpa Institute of Karate had testing and promotions for the White belts in the class,
where they received their second stripe. The students have worked hard, and have accomplished a great
deal. Their promotion was well earned!
The upper belts continued their efforts towards getting ready for testing. Nancy Longacre (7th DAN),
and Leon Longacre (7th DAN) visited class to assist with getting the upper belts prepared. The
students greatly appreciated their visit, their insight, and their assistance in getting them ready
physically and mentally for what lies ahead.
