Ascending Studs

Congratulations new blue belts, Tristan “Raptor” Ligtvoet (left) and Josh “Viper” Shamassian (right)! These two young men are rising stars in the Kiado-Ryu, ascending studs to be sure. This last test was excellent, both boys exhibiting vast improvement in their abilities. Pictured with Raptor and Viper are (from left-to-right), Black Belts Kim “Cultivator” Thomas, Christopher “Growler” Grau, Mr. King, and Mike “Shooter” Benedict.
