The IMA Family offers its sincere congratulations to everyone who successfully earned new black belt designations on January 30th!
B.B. Jan. 2016
Over 30 students and instructors endured 8 hours of training and testing this past Saturday as part of their black belt progression. In addition to multiple members of the IMA family earning advanced black belts through many years of dedicated training, one member of our family were also awarded the title of Shihan – making this past weekend one of the most memorable in IMA’s long history.
