Sensei Marta Azzam was the first person to receive the Goju-Shorei challenge coin. All Goju-Shorei Black Belts, whether in Karate, Weapons or Jujitsu will receive one of these coins for each of their Goju-Shorei Black Belts.
Challenge rules: If we are at a bar or restaurant and a Goju-Shorei challenge coin is presented all Goju-Shorei black belts must also present theirs. If a black belt does not have theirs they buy. On the other hand if all black belts have their coin then the challenger buys.
The coins are being mailed or given out now.
So as some of you know, I was forced to have back surgery in September. By October I was completely off of pain meds, though after several years on that terrible stuff, withdrawals were a tough "street-fight". Recently, after training, I've been needing an Aleve but not much else. Yesterday I had a blast, center judging a tournament here in Las Vegas for about nine hours. I haven't been on my feet that long, moved that much, or had as much fun in years. Since then ... no pain! NONE!!! I think my back is healing. :)
