Recently, we have had many requests for photos of our latest Kearny Martial Arts Black Belts. For the first time ever, Grandmaster Marchetti has given his permission to release photos taken of our new black belts immediately after their well deserved promotions.
As many of you know, the KMA Black Belt Test is a closed door affair. During the test, the door of the school is locked and specially designed window shades are dropped from ceiling to floor; the event is private and only witnessed by students of the Dojo.
Everyone that obtains the KMA Black Belt has spent many years studying Michi Budo Ryu at the Dojo. Some of them have been here since childhood.
We hope you enjoy these photos of this special event!
