    Default Alia's Belt Test

    Alia White-Cass (Mr. White’s daughter) was recently promoted to Black Belt by her father. It was a proud and emotional day at BWKS. Here is a link to a highlight video of the test:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9EYRTkjxLM

    It is always a special day when there is a BB test. As you will see there were 30+ black belts there to support Alia. That is the norm and it is always fun to see so many talented, loyal black belts in one place. Many of the people in the video have been students of Mr. White for over 25 years.

    There was not a dry eye in the house when Mr. White presented Alia with her late mother’s original Black Belt.

    WOW. That was great. I bet it was awasome for Mr. White and especially his daughter. I have never seen that form before (the mass attack one). Pretty cool stuff. It must have been nerve racking to have all of those black belts watching her every move. A big congrats goes to her and Mr. White.

    Man....I actually got goose bumps. That's truely awesome. She has excellent form, footwork, and execution. I know her father and peers must all be very proud of her.

    Wish her a very heart fealt congratulations for all of us!

    Wow. I guess nobody can accuse her of getting off easy because she's the daughter of the instructor!

    They really put her through the paces and she looked outstanding.

    Very impressive.

    It was an honor to be invited to the test. I never would have expected to get teary at a black belt test. Not once but twice. When Alia belted but also when she threw Mr. Jim McClure during spontaneous reaction.

    That was awesome. Not a dry eye hear either (and my wife doesn't even have an interest in MA).
