Latest News From Our School – News and Recognition

Hello everyone!

These past two weeks were pretty eventful and History was made here in San Pedro. Lets start with the weekend before last. On Feb 17th, 2018 our dear friend and Sensei Mauricio Tinguinha came for his 3rd time to our School to teach his craft to our team. Sensei Tinguinha brought to our mats a set of techniques of Spider Guard and it is needless to say that it was an awesome high level class. We also had the pleasure to have Sensei Paulo Guillobel on the mat with us for the Seminar. In addition to a great time on the Seminar, we had our veery first Black Belt promotion at our School. Yeah! That is right… Our School is near 12 years old now and the first seed from San Pedro is now Black Belt. Tim O’Donnell (39), active student under Sensei Pedro Soriano since 2008, has been promoted the rank of Black Belt. Tim is a father of two, an husband, ILWU member and last but not least a person of character and values, loyal and true samurai spirit.

San Pedro has other Black Belts but Mr. O’Donnell is the first Black Belt to be awarded a Black Belt in Town after training from White to Black. Below are some pictures of this amazing weekend.
