First Black Belts – USKU NZ

Jenny Nixey and daughter Kelly Siggs were both awarded their Shodan (1st degree) black belts after a successful grading at the Ern Hallidays Recreation Camp in Hillarys, Perth over the weekend of August 21st and 22nd.

On the grading panel was USKU Director Kenichi Fukamizu Sensei (8th Dan), and USKU President Carl Marriott (7th Dan) and Committee Member Brian Koenig (5th Dan).

Both Jenny and Kelly are the first recipients of shodan black belts for USKU NZ, and in turn have set the standard for future USKU NZ shodan candidates.
