5 first generation 9th degrees
« on: April 30, 2017, 11:18:08 AM »
April 29 2017...........5 first generation black belts from Ahgung Tony Ramos before he passed away in 99 received their 9th degree Grand Master and Sr. Professorship from NCKSDIBADASS & AKD. These fellows have their own schools and their own black belts under them and have been teaching for many, many years.  They are Grand Master Art Butler, Grand Master Oliver Valenzuela, Grand Master Ron Forsythe (Ahgung's consultant), Senior Professor Mani Esquivel and Senior Professor Rick Williams. We had the honor of having Grand Master Glenn Fraticelli and Ms. Jacqueline Conway (the daughter of Sr. Grand Master Frank Conway) and Professor Lenny Ramirez (one of Augung's very first students in his garage) as witnesses. This was followed by the new 9th degrees and GM Fraticelli then teaching a seminar of knowledge from Ahgung Ramos......... The all-day event was enjoyed by everyone.
