Congratulations also to Thijs de Droog the first Black Belt student of sihing Deniz Kara from the IWKA Haarlem.

The Technician candidates that did not receive their certificate today were very close. It was a difficult call for Sifu Wolgang and he is confident that you will receive your Technician grade in March 2013 without any further exam required. So also, well done to all!!

The following Technician candidates that passed their exams today:

Joy Bainath-Sah
Haroon Sheikh
Ryan Doekhi
Jochem Meesters

and… the first 3 women to get their first Technician grade at the Amsterdam IWKA HQ:

Elisah Jacobs
Clea van de Ven
Linde Joosten

Excellent effort from all and well deserved!

It was a long, challenging, intense and inspiring day for all. The students/candidates proved themselves and also excelled in demonstrating both physically and mentally the true meaning of Kung Fu: “To acquire a special skill through hard training!”
Congratulations to all new Black Belt (Sash) and Technicians. You deserve it!!

Special thanks to Waldemar Kool and Andreas Atzeni from the IWKA German HQ and a very special thanks to Sifu Wolfgang Herges for successfully leading the exams and making this a very positive and unforgettable day for everybody!!
