Congratulations Ben Medlen on your promotion to blue belt
Ben worked hard leading up to his belt test, going through the all the requirements to ensure he was ready for the day.
His hard work paid off, as he did very well, passing the test with great results. That just left the “Shark tank”, where Ben needed to roll continuously for 60 minutes, facing a fresh opponent every few minutes.
His technique wasn’t the only thing Ben had been working on leading up to the day and his improved conditioning showed as he completed the 60 minutes. He finished his last roll facing off with his son Angus, who we all encouraged to take it to the “old man”, and he didn’t let us down, as he was apparently smack talking his dad through out the roll.
