In late 2009 Robert and I tested for our 3rd Kyu in Bujinkan under Shidoshi Charles Benham and Sensei Pat Vawter. Testing with us was Gabriel from southern Colorado who was testing for his Shodan/Black Belt.
Here are some images of the test itself.
Thanks to Shidoshi Charles Benham and Sensei Pat Vawter for all their quality instruction which enabled us to do so well.
March 2010 Robert and I when to the 2010 IBDA Tai Kai and sat our Shodan/Black Belt test. We had a great time and met tons of fellow Bujinkan practitioners and masters.
Below are a few images from the 2010 Tai Kai.
Thanks to everyone who participated as it was a wonderful experience had by all I am sure. A special thanks to Shidoshi Charles Benham and Sensei Pat Vawter for their instruction and preparing us for the Shodan test.
We would also like to thank Shihan Richard and Linda Van Donk for everything you guys do for all of us at the IBDA.
