    Promotion of Luis Gardia to (USJF) 9th dan

    Luis Gardia from Miami has become the first person who (finally) is not of Japanese heritage who has been promoted to 9th dan by the USJF:


    Congrats !!

    USJF has also promoted Uchida 'Yosh' Yoshihiro from SJSU to 9th dan, while USA Judo's according to its own information (as I have reported earlier) has apparently promoted him to 10th dan although strangely no news report still mentions this exceptionally high (10th dan) rank. So also congrats to Uchida-sensei for this second promotion.

    Comgratulaotions to Mr Gardia on this promotion. In the Miami Herald, he is referred to as Hanshi. Which body bestowed this title on him?
