Sensei Lee’s seminar focused on philosophy, principles and finer techniques of Shotokan Karate. All attending Karatekas as well as observers were very enlightened by his wisdom. He also conducted a grading. Kirk Kendall and Shannon Manuel were promoted to Green Belt. George Hillyard, Shawn Hillyard and Ryan Hillyard were promoted to 1st Degree Black Belt (1st Dan). Janet Price was promoted to 2nd Degree Black Belt (2nd Dan). The promotion of George, Shawn and Ryan was a rare occurrence where three generations of a family (grandfather, son and grandson) received their promotion to Black Belt at the same time.
