The following students participated and all passed:

- Jessica Mickevicius — Nidan (2nd Degree Black Belt)
- Dennis Dyon — Shodan (1st Degree Black Belt)
- Erin Brennan-Maurice — Shodan (1st Degree Black Belt)
Twenty-one year old Mr. Johnson-Escudero is one of Sensei Ounkham’s original students and has been training since the age of 12. He is the first Sandan or 3rd-degree blackbelt promoted by Sensei Ounkham and is now the highest-ranking student at the Lannon martial arts school.
The examination board were very impressed by the testing and we thank them for volunteering their time and expertise to the event:

Congratulations to all the students on their achievement today and their dedication and discipline.
