    Proud dad again

    Post by tafftaz on Mon Feb 10, 2014 1:29 am

    Been a good few months for me judo wise.
    I got promotion to Sandan last November, but today I have had better news.
    My daughter just came back from a dan grading and got the required number of points for her shodan.
    She is the only female practising in a club full of men and she really deserves her promotion as she works extremely hard in practise.
    She went away to compete and only needed to win one fight to get her grade. She won 3 however.
    So family tree reads like this judo wise
    My dad - Nidan
    Me - Sandan
    My son - Shodan
    My daughter - Shodan

    A very proud dad this morning. Very Happy
