Meagan Starr, Marjorie Bedsole, Sensei Keith Moore, Lester Vazquez, Lidio Kercado and Julian Sanchez.

Genbu-Kai Karate in Wellington is proud to announce the advancement of five adult students to the rank of Sho-Dan (first degree black belt) in the art of Batto-Do.

All five traveled to Santa Ana, Calif., last year to test for this level, also competing and placing during the 46th annual championships. This group, along with a few other Genbu-Kai Karate students competed in batto, kobudo (Okinawan weapons) and karate, bringing home 10 medals for their efforts.

Batto-Do is the Japanese art of drawing and cutting with the Japanese katana.
