Coming Back to Our Roots

Last March 16, 2013, the Little Ferry Chapter of New Jersey, Clifton Chapter of New Jersey, Belvedere Chapter of Tarrytown, New York, and Philly Chapter of Philadelphia have their first district level promotion test at Belvedere Dojo, Tarrytown, New York.

Belvedere Dojo was the first dojo where it produced a lot of TIMD black belts under Master Takahashi, and now reaches all over the world. Master Takahashi also toured Asia, and produced a lot of black belts specially in the Philippines.

We feel that God brought us together at the very historical Belvedere Dojo to re-start after the Foundation Day, there are 33 total participants and 3 people promoted to black belts 1st degree and one black belt to 2nd degree.With the presence of Master K. Takahashi, Master R. Cobo, Master S. Iwasaki, and Master N. Nitro.
