New USKU NZ Shodan

Caleb Payne receives his Shodan certificate after successfully grading under Fukamizu Shihan

Congratulations to Caleb Payne who successfully passed his shodan (black belt) exam in front of an international panel in Adelaide, Australia.

18 members took part in the grading with attempts for shodan (first degree), through to yondan (fourth degree).  Thank you to USKU Adelaide for coordinating the facilities to allow the grading to take place.

Caleb is one of our most dedicated students, and his success is testament to the many years of consistent training.  The hard work has paid off, but the journey is only just beginning!
