Celebrating Recent Dan Promotions

Posted on by Sensei Steve Erickson


Congratulations to our latest successful testing candidates!

During the annual Canadian Aikido Federation Fall Seminar, Osawa Shihan and the CAF Examination Committee presided over Dan grading.  BigRock Aikikai senior students Brad Meyers and Raoul Dub both took 3rd Dan tests.  They performed very well representing our dojo honourably.  

A 3rd Dan test is the culmination of a great deal of dedication and perseverance.  Both Brad and Raoul have been cornerstones of BigRock Aikikai over the years, helping to teach adult and youth classes, preparing junior students for grading and taking care of the administration of our dojo.  

Congratulations, Brad and Raoul.  Your hard work has earned you 3rd Dan and your experience and expertise will serve to advance the students at BigRock Aikikai who follow you.  

Thank you, for all you give to your dojo.
