SUMMER PROMOTIONAL 2022 at US Budokai Karate for JR/Teen/Adult Members was our biggest promotional ever!!

Congratulations to all who advanced during the Summer 2022 Promotional!  Hanshi Jarem commended the groups – especially beginner white belts – on their effort, energy, and enthusiasm!! The 3 E’s of success!

Students rose to the challenge of testing with a strong focus on the self-discipline they have been developing.  Regardless of age, karate encourages a student to develop good habits, in turn, those habits develop YOU!  You are what you do!! OSU!
