Jr. Shodan Exam in Richmond

Postby gmattson » Fri Dec 04, 1998 10:56 pm

Bill Glasheen sent me a video of Richman's first Jr. Shodan examination, held on December 2, 1998. Bill sent it to me as a courtesy, as he knows that I trust his judgement in any test conducted by him.

I was most impressed with Amir Abu Jaber's performance. He made a few minor technical mistakes, but most importantly, his attitude, dedication, spirit and knowledge were of the highest order. Congratulations to Mr. Jaber and to Bill.

Jr. Shodan Exam in Richmond

Mattson sensei: I'm very pleased to see this response. I've known Amir and his family for about 6 years since they became involved with Bill. The entire family deserves a Black Belt as well for the support they give Bill. There are two more young Abu-Jabers who will no doubt be testing for the same rank soon, plus a 16 year old friend of theirs.

By the way, I'm the person in the background that let out a loud 'wow' when Amir stood on his sokusens. Amir is one in a hundred, no, maybe one in a thousand.
