On Monday February 20th, Sensei Don Stoudt tested for his 5th degree black belt. Don’s hard work and dedication paid off as he was awarded the title of “Master”.

After receiving his new belt and congratulatory hugs from students and family, Don shared with the crowd not only his excitement but a story as well.

As it turns out, Master Stoudt started training at Bradley Karate Studio in the late 70’s. As with life, things came up. And Master Stoudt but his training on hold.

With his family’s encouragement Master Stoudt started regularly training again several years ago. The hard work and dedication paid off.

Congrats Don…we are all proud of you.
