Congratulations John Peng!

John PengCongratulations to John Peng, SSA’s Board President, who was awarded the rank of nidan (2nd degree black belt) this weekend.

On Saturday, April 14, John tested in front of Seishiro Endo Shihan, 8th Dan, Hombu Dojo, Japan at the Health Center at Seattle Community College. In a sweltering hot room, John demonstrated his ability to handle the testing stress of concentrated attacks by single and multiple attackers over an extended period of time.

Earning the rank of nidan in any martial art is a significant achievement. It represents years of physical, mental and emotional training.

Well done, well earned.
