2016 Black Belt Workout
July 2nd 2016 Black Belt Workout
The July 2nd 2016 Black Belt promotions took place at the end of this Black Belt workout wherein WOSKKA instructors from Northern and Central California were invited to come and share information with the group. This sharing of information allowed us all to receive the teachings of instructors representing the styles of various systems of Shorin-Ryu, Goju-Ryu, Kenpo, Kajukenbo, and anyone else who wanted to share. We have a good time at these gatherings and learn a great deal of information from and about each other.

Sensei David Silvers
Not only does Sensei Silvers willingly share information, but he also volunteers as an uke for Hanshi Sid Rayford and other senior instructors who need an uke with a certain level of "toughness."
