I am cordially inviting you to be my guest for lunch at Stella Lunas on Friday April 9th, 2010.
I am honored to have 8th dan, Grandmaster Joseph Donnelly visit on some union business and hope you have an opportunity to come and meet him.
8th Dans are very rare and essentially implies that person has over 35 years experience as a black belt. (See Taekwon-Do International Black Belt Dan Certification requirements ). In the brief time I have gotten to know him, Grandmaster Donnelly has proven to be brilliant, interesting, accomplished, and knowledgeable. Furthermore, he is one of the few people you can meet who has actually met and trained with General Choi Hong Hi. Grandmaster Donnelly has made Taekwon-Do his life’s work and I am proud to have him in our union and to personally know him.
Please RSVP to me no later than Wednesday so I can reserve a table.
