Congratulations Logan Yakesh on his promotion to Nidan (second degree black belt) this past Saturday (23 May 2015).  Mr. Yakesh started in the children’s class 10 years ago, assisted with classes in Colfax and has continued to train even after heading off to university.  He is doing well in school and the professional world as well.  Mr. Yakesh has been a great example of a student who studies and contrives seriously.
Mr. Yakesh is not our first black belt but he is the first to reach the Nidan level.  It was my honor to be his uke and see him receive his certificate from Taira Sensei.  Congratulations Mr. Yakesh!
