Before finishing up the fall semester in 106 White Bldg, we recognized Nakoa’s efforts and progress with a promotion to Kukyu.
The fall 2017 semester will be ending soon. The last two classes in our 106 White Building dojo will be this week (12/5 & 12/7). The time to strike is when the opportunity presents itself.
