3rd degree black belt test

Thank you Jenny my wife, Matt Goodrich and John Buck for generously making the trip down to New York City to support me for my test.
Thanks also to my sisters Kathy and Trish for embracing the Soju experience. Of course, I am eternally grateful to Grandmaster Suk Jun Kim for his teaching and support.
Rather than focus on videos, I would like to emphasize here the oath we take and renew as blackbelts. Links to videos are below.
