Recently I was back up in Rochester, NY, visiting and teaching a seminar at Nova Fitness.  Congratulations to Alex Blank and Casey Jordan on passing their brown-belt exam!  And a big congratulations to Steve Arnold on passing his black-belt exam!  I did want to call out that Steve and Casey put a lot of effort into their preparation and it showed, well done!  And yes, it really has been 11 years since Alex got his purple-belt!
