Congratulations Justin Clark!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an amazing feeling it was for Sam and I to see Justin perform so well at his Little Tigers Black belt grading in July.
Justin, to see you grow from the shy little boy that could barely say hello to the talented, confident and outgoing Little Black Belt you are today has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my teaching life.
Well done Justin we are all very proud of you.
