New Purple Belts

Congratulations to Tristan “Raptor” Ligtvoet (left) and Josh “Viper” Shamassian (right), who each earned their purple belt rank following their test on April 6, 2009. Raptor and Viper are two very tough and talented young men. It is, indeed, a pleasure having them study at the Karate Institute of America.

Great job, boys, and we look forward to continued great things from both of you in the future!
