    Long time Parkland Judo Member Promoted to Brown Belt (1st Kyu)
    by Scott Arnold - Wednesday, 20 June 2018, 10:53 AM
     

    Long time member of the Parkland Judo Academy Jon Crisostomo was promoted to the rank of brown belt (1st kyu) on June 19, 2018. This is a significant moment as it is the first time in 30 years that a student has attained this rank while still a member of Parkland Judo. A tremendous amount of pain, hard work and dedication went into achieving this significant goal. We are very proud of Jon and look forward to seeing his Judo journey continue in the future.
