Two newly promoted Yellow Belts in Goju-Shorei Karate.
Cesar Schinzing (left) was a Black Belt in Hwa Rang Do (2nd Black in Goju-Shorei Weapons) and John Mayes (middle) was a Black Belt in Goju Ryu and a Brown Belt in Shito Ryu, and they've started learning Goju-Shorei Karate from the beginning.
Starting at white belt in a different style/system is not easy. It requires that the student put aside ego, and preconceived martial arts ideas, learn different phraseology and retrain muscle memory. But these two are doing just that.
Congratulations to my newest students.
